Kathmandu, February 5
The Delegation of the European Union to Nepal says the European Commissioner for International Partnerships Jutta Urpilainen is coming to Nepal this Wednesday on a one-day visit.
During the visit, she will meet Nepali leaders and launch several EU actions in the country.
“I look forward to presenting our Global Gateway strategy, the EU’s positive offer to partners to boost smart, clean and secure links in digital, energy and transport sectors and to strengthen health, education and research systems across the world,” Urpilainen is quoted in the statement.
The visit comes at an important moment as Nepal is preparing to graduate from the least developed country (LDC) status in 2026, thus reaffirming the European Union’s strong and unwavering engagement with Nepal, including through the recent launch of the Multiannual Indicative Programme (MIP) for Nepal for 2021-2027, according to the delegation.
Nutrition, education and green recovery will be the delegate’s top agenda during the Nepal visit, according to the statement.
