Hetauda, October 17

Hetauda, the headquarters of Province 3, is likely to have the country’s largest agriculture wholesale market.

The market, which is being developed in collaboration with all three levels of government is estimated to cost around 700 million rupees and is expected to resolve the problem of lack of market for agriculture products that has emerged as a major challenge for farmers across the country.

The central government prepared the DPR and Province 3 government and Hetauda sub-metropolis will be collaborating to construct the market.

According to Province 3 Chief Minister Dormani Poudel, the government is committed to constructing the facility and bringing it into operation.

“We hope to complete the construction within two years and bring the facility into operation,” he said.

Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Dawa Dorje Lama said that the market would be modern, fully equipped and farmer-friendly.

A team including Federal Agriculture and Livestock Development Minister Chakrapani Khanal, Province 3 Agriculture Minister Dawa Dorje Lama and agriculture experts monitored the proposed site to construct the market.

During his visit here some time ago, Khanal had revealed about the government’s plan to construct nine agriculture wholesale markets across the country by spending over 500 million rupees.
