Kathmandu, January 20
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is leaving on a trip to Switzerland to attend the annual meeting of World Economic Forum.
The meeting will begin this Tuesday in Davos.
This is the first time that a Nepali prime minister is attending the annual meeting of WEF, according to the Prime Minister’s Secretariat.
Oli will address three sessions of the meeting, according to sources.
The government has hoped that Nepal’s participation in the meeting at the prime ministerial level will help the country attract more foreign investment.
The PM’s 19 member delegation includes his wife Radhika Shakya, Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Gyawali, Foreign Secretary Shanker Das Bairagi, the PM’s chief political advisor Bishnu Rimal and foreign affairs advisor Rajan Bhattarai among others.
The team will return home on Saturday.
