SEZ Bill Endorsed by the Parliament Nepal

Daayitwa is pleased to welcome the recent news of the endorsement of Special Economic Zone Bill by the parliament of Nepal. Daayitwa through its partnership with Samunnati (Economic Policy Incubator) has been closely working with the Ministry of Industry and Special Economic Zone authorities. This is a milestone in the effort of reviving the Nepali industries through adoption of new strategies as envisaged in the past two industrial policies of the Government of Nepal. The Bill has now taken the shape of Act after 10 years.

Our Daayitwa Toli member, Mr. Manoj Paudel has been leading Daayitwa’s efforts on SEZ in collaboration with Former Secretary of the Government of Nepal Mr. Purshottam Ojha, and our Daayitwa fellows: Ms. Veera Lamicchane, Mr. Dixit KC and Mr. Sujan Adhikari are working this summer with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Export Promotion Centre on related issues and Mr. Vibhav Pradhan who worked in the past. In coming days, Daayitwa will work to ensure that maximum benefits of SEZs will accrue to the local economy, people and businesses.
