Kathmandu, Oct. 7: Finance Minister Shankar Prasad Koirala has said Nepal was in need of promoting the domestic production because only productive economy would boost the national development.

“Initiatives have been taken to equip the office of the domestic industry, and empower office chiefs with authority,” added Minister Koirala.

On the occasion, Chairman of the Federation of Nepal Domestic Industries, Suresh Pradhan, pointed out a need to focus on agriculture, forest, mine, tourism and renewable energy.

Director General at Department of Commerce, Narayan Bidari, and Director General at Domestic Entrepreneurship Committee, Bogendra Sharma Poudel, said although the domestic products have contributed a lot to the national development, it was yet to get proper attention. RSS
