Nepal Releases Investor Handbook to Boost Indo-Nepal Business Ties

In a move aimed at enhancing business collaboration between Nepal and India, Nepal’s Finance Minister Barsha Man Pun unveiled a comprehensive handbook for Indian investors interested in exploring opportunities in Nepal. This initiative, supported by the Nepal India Chamber of Commerce and Industries (NICCI), was launched during the Nepal Investment Summit 2024 to facilitate smoother engagement and investment in Nepal’s burgeoning market.

The handbook, a valuable resource for prospective investors, covers essential topics such as rules, regulations, taxation, investment climate, intellectual property rights, and investment procedures specific to Nepal. It serves as a guide for Indian businesses looking to navigate the regulatory landscape and seize investment prospects in the Himalayan nation.

India has played a pivotal role in Nepal’s economic development, with approximately 150 Indian ventures operating across diverse sectors including manufacturing, services (banking, insurance, education, telecom), power, and tourism. These investments have significantly contributed to Nepal’s industrialization, employment generation, government revenue, and export earnings.

The recent Nepal Investment Summit witnessed significant milestones in economic cooperation between Nepal and other nations. Key bilateral agreements were signed, including partnerships with Indian and Malaysian entities to explore trade and investment opportunities.
