Frost & Sullivan to Explore Investment Opportunities in Nepal Amidst Economic Transformation


To discover more on the topic, join Frost & Sullivan's complimentary online briefing scheduled on August 30, 2017


Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

Nepal is undergoing a significant economic transformation, uncovering investment opportunities across a wide array of sectors. The Government of Nepal intends to achieve GDP growth of 7.2% in 2017-18 through increased momentum in post-earthquake reconstruction and significant spending on infrastructure projects. The current budget has allocated $600 million for the execution of National Pride Projects, which include key, large infrastructure projects such as the Gautam Buddha International Airport and the 456MW Upper Tamakoshi hydropower project. Investment in infrastructure projects will be lucrative for private-sector participants given the Government’s focus on adopting the public-private partnership (PPP) model for large projects, including hydropower, smart cities, new towns, railways, and roadways.
 
In the light of evolving economic and industry conditions , Frost & Sullivan’s Emerging Market Innovation team will host an online briefing/webinar titled “Nepal's Economic Transformation - Seizing Investment Opportunities” on August 30, 2017, Wednesday, at 12 pm (IST) / 12:15 pm (NPT) / 2:30 pm (SGT). A panel of experts comprising of Nepal Government policymakers and key private sector representatives, as well as Frost & Sullivan senior management, will provide commentary on the country’s changing economic scenario, evolving policy conditions, and industry specific investment opportunities. The briefing will conclude with an interactive Q&A session with the expert panel.
