FNCCI President Dhakal asks EU for its market for Nepali goods

KATHMANDU: Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) President Chandra Prasad Dhakal on Monday asked the European Union to facilitate EU market for Nepali goods.
Addressing the opening ceremony of the first EU Nepal Business Forum 2023 entitled ‘Unleashing Opportunities for EU Trade and Investment in Nepal’ in the capital, President Dhakal asked the EU to provide greater entry to Nepali goods to its market as it might lose the duty free access to European countries after its graduation from Least Developed Country (LDC).
He said that Nepal and EU share a huge scope for cooperation in investment and market linkages in many sectors ranging from hydropower, solar, wind energy, tourism, ICT, agriculture and agro processing, manufacturing, tea, coffee to herbal products.
Stating that Nepali economy was not in a good health, he asked the EU and its business community to bring in more investment and support in Nepal.
He said that Nepal had ample opportunities to further strengthen mutually beneficial economic partnerships with European Union that has 27 member states and represents one of the world’s largest economies.
