Kathmandu, November 1
Stakeholders including government officials, professionals and youth entrepreneurs recently came to a common forum to discuss problems and opportunities Nepal has in the field of entrepreneurship development.
During the National Youth Entrepreneurship Policy Dialogue, organised by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies in collaboration with Daayitwa in Kathmandu on Tuesday, the participants voiced their concerns and expectations from the government. After that, the both sides worked together to identify possible solutions for them.
In particular, the participants held discussions on four key themes–skills and education, access to finance, access to information, and business ecosystem–and presented their recommendations.
Addressing the function, Industry Minister Matrika Prasad Yadav, Industry Secretary Yam Kumari Khatiwada and Commerce Secretary Chandra Ghimire expressed their commitment to initiating legal and policy reforms from the government side.
“The Ministry will take suggestions made in this National Youth Entrepreneurial Policy Dialogue into consideration while formulating policy actions in the future,” Khatiwada said.
