LAHORE - Nepal has huge investment opportunities for Pakistani businessmen in a number of sectors including readymade garments, education, pharmaceuticals, tourism and tea development. This was stated by Nepalese ambassador Bala Bahadur Kanwar while speaking at the LCCI on Friday. LCCI SVP Ijaz A. Mumtaz, VP Faisal Iqbal Sheikh, former Vice Presidents Sheikh M Arshad, Aftab Ahmad Vohra and Convener Standing Committee on Foreign Missions Tariq Misbah also spoke on the occasion. The ambassador said that the investment in Nepal would not only enhance the volume of intra-regional trade and people to people contact but it would also help Nepal to eradicate poverty. He said that Pakistani businessmen should avail incentives available to them in the shape of lowest taxes tariff and one-window operation being offered by the present Nepalese government. He also urged the LCCI SVP to bring a delegation of LCCI to Nepal so that they could have first-hand knowledge of the economic opportunities in Nepal, as frequent visits are one of the tools to expand business ties. He said that Nepal is ready to make special bilateral trading arrangements with Pakistan for the sake of economic well being of both the countries, as Nepalese businessmen feel quite comfortable while dealing with their Pakistani counterparts. He said that fast changing global scenario demands from the business people to break the barriers and join hands for a better future of their respective people. He said that at present the mutual trade ties between Pakistan and Nepal are negligible and the state of affairs asks for an increased frequency of reciprocal visits by the Pakistani and Nepalese business community.
