During a meeting with the Confederation of Nepalese Industries delegation on Monday, PM Deuba expressed his view that the private sector increases their investment for the country's industrial development, adding that he was ready to facilitate this.
"Our party has always promoted the private sector. We are ready for policy-level facilitation needed for you," Deuba said.
Similarly, Deuba said that 'Make in Nepal-Swadeshi' campaign could become a tool to bring about quality changes in Nepal's economy. Deuba was of the view that the campaign would play a crucial role in increasing production and consumption.
