KATHMANDU: More than 70 exhibitors have booked their stalls for the Himalayan Hydro Expo, which is scheduled to begin in Kathmandu from January 18.

The Independent Power Producers’ Association, Nepal (IPPAN) and Expo and Event Management Services are jointly hosting the event to promote the country’s hydel sector.

Issuing a press statement on Thursday, organisers said that both domestic and foreign participants have been increasingly booking their stalls for the exhibition.

The event is expected to have more than 100 stalls that will be engaged in promoting the hydropower sector by displaying hydel equipment, and providing information on funding, insurance and investment potential in the sector.

The three-day expo will also have three seminars every day on the potential and challenges in the country’s hydropower sector.
