Kathmandu, December 1

The Nepali Congress has sketched a five-year roadmap for developing the country socially and economically.

The NC’s plan was made public at a news conference at the party central office in Kathmandu today. The roadmap is based on a free and liberal market economy policy, said the NC’s economic prosperity and development coordination subcommittee coordinator Binod Chaudhary.

The NC plans to attain double-digit growth, attract foreign investment, implement the concept of special economic zone, and encourage investment, he said.

Likewise, NC will announce backward provinces as special economic zone, amend laws to create environment to attract foreign investors, accelerate the construction of railways, introduce planned urbanisation policy and complete national pride projects. The roadmap also prioritises reforms in education and health sectors.

Speaking at the conference, NC publicity committee coordinator Bal Krishna Khand claimed that the NC would emerge as the largest party in the ongoing elections.
