President of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) Chandra Prasad Dhakal and the Ambassador of the Netherlands for Nepal, India, and Bhutan, Marten van den Berg, held a meeting at the FNCCI secretariat on Thursday. The meeting focused on exploring potential investment opportunities and seeking support for Nepal’s economic growth.

During the meeting, President Dhakal highlighted Nepal as a prime investment destination, emphasising the country’s efforts in infrastructure development, digital transformation of the economy, promotion of agri-based industries, and overall industrial growth.

He expressed his desire for the Netherlands to actively participate in these areas, recognising the potential for mutually beneficial partnerships.

President Dhakal also underscored the importance of skill development for Nepalese workers in semi-skilled and high-skilled jobs.

He requested the support of the Netherlands in this regard, acknowledging the FNCCI’s commitment to enhancing the capacity and expertise of the local workforce.

He urged Ambassador Berg to explore partnership opportunities with the business chambers of the Netherlands, envisioning collaborative initiatives that would drive economic growth and bilateral trade.

In response, Ambassador Berg affirmed his commitment to facilitating Dutch investment in Nepal, engaging directly with the private sector in the Netherlands. He expressed his intention to leverage his position to encourage Dutch businesses to explore the potential of the Nepalese market, considering the favorable investment climate and emerging opportunities.

Ambassador Berg said that he would ask the economic unit in New Delhi, with the aim of extending support to startups and other businesses in Nepal. By leveraging existing networks and resources, he aims to foster an environment conducive to entrepreneurship and innovation, thereby contributing to the overall economic development of Nepal.

The meeting between FNCCI President Dhakal and Ambassador Berg signifies a positive step towards strengthening the economic ties between Nepal and the Netherlands.

As both parties express their commitment to collaboration and investment, it is anticipated that this partnership will unlock new avenues for growth, facilitate knowledge exchange, and create mutually beneficial opportunities for businesses in both countries.
