Speaking at the event, president of NCCCI Rajesh Kazi Shrestha urged the Chinese investors to invest in Nepal as investment climate has improved in Nepal with the formation of a stable government.


Stating that Nepal, as a least developing country, would receive the facilities in international trade, he asked the investors to take advantage of the facilities by increasing their export by establishing manufacturing and other industries in Nepal. "Tourism, agriculture, water resources and infrastructure sectors are potential areas of investment in Nepal," Shrestha informed.


Zhang said that they would work in Nepal for the development of railway, banking, airlines and tourism. Stating that many members of the delegation have already invested in Nepal, he said that other members of the delegation also wanted to invest in Nepal.


The delegation comprised the investors of the railway, technology, telecommunication, construction, agriculture and engineering sectors, he added.
