A delegation from the American Chamber of Commerce in India arrived in Kathmandu on Monday. The trade mission, the first by a US business organisation in 13 years, will explore investment and trade opportunities in Nepal.
This important visit demonstrates the renewed American interest in Nepal’s economy. Building on the recently-signed US-Nepal Trade and Investment Framework Agreement, the US Embassy in Nepal hopes to expand economic ties between the two countries.
Nine US companies are taking part in the delegation, including Johnson & Johnson, GE Healthcare, Rockwell Automation, Monsanto, and Bell Helicopter. During three-day visit, the delegates will meet the prime minister and senior government officials.(Source:ekantipur)
