Province 3 organised an interaction in Bharatpur on 19 April focused on making the province more investment-friendly for public-private partnerships. Chief Guest Pushpa Kamal Dahal said Nepal’s federal transition has made PPPs possible. MP and industrialist Binod Chaudhary and Khimlal Devkota of the NPC also participated. “The province must provide a clear incentive package and encourage specialised products to attract domestic and foreign investors,” Chaudhary said. The conference identified five priority areas: heritage tourism, import substitution manufacturing, energy, agriculture, and specialised services and human resources. Chairman of the National Natural Resource and Fiscal Commission, Balananda Paudel, said the public sector had to ensure economies of scale, policy predictability and solid infrastructure. The interaction was organised by VRock & Co.
