Mar 20, 2017- Minister for Foreign Affairs Prakash Sharan Mahat has said that the Non-Resident Nepalis (NRN) are the human capital for Nepal to help ensure development and prosperity to their home country.


Addressing the 5th Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA)’s Asia Pacific Region’s meeting in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, Minister Mahat said: “The skill, technology and capital of the NRNs spread across the globe could be a huge asset for Nepal to usher her into the path of development and prosperity.”

Stating that tens of thousands Nepalis were forced to seek greener pasture due to political instability, conflict and various other reasons, Mahat urged the NRNs across the world to acknowledge the contributions of their motherland to their accomplishments and contribute for the development of their motherland.

Mahat expressed his confidence that the upcoming local level elections would help elect people’s representatives in the local structure and the new constitution would be implemented.

He also called on the NRNs to consider making investment in various sectors in Nepal, assuring them that the country was about to make a headway for stability and development. “I urged the NRNs for the investment in hydro electricity project and service-oriented sectors.”

He was of the opinion that the NRNA, as a platform to facilitate for the economic development activities and exchange of knowledge and skills, would support the national cause of development of their motherland.

The government, according to him, is making efforts to protect and promote the rights of a huge number of Nepali migrant workers abroad, especially in the Gulf countries.

A total of 200 representatives from 15 Asia-Pacific countries, including Nepali entrepreneurs, are taking part in the meeting.

Also present on the occasion were Nepali Ambassador to India Niranjanman Singh Basnyat, NRNA President Shesh Ghale and former NRNA presidents Upendra Mahato and Jeeva Lamichane who also echoed the sentiments of Minister Mahat.
