During the meeting, discussions were held on cooperation between FNCCI and UN to meet the Sustainable Development Goals and on the challenges that emerge when Nepal graduates from the status of Least Developed Country. Talks were also held on how the two organisations could collaborate to minimise the impact of the Covid 19 on the country’s economy. During the meeting, Golchha apprised Nyantithe about FNCCI’s extensive network across the country and how the Federation could play a vital role in achieving the SDGs. He also mentioned that if the provisions in the National Economic Transformation 2030 (NET 2030) could be properly implemented then it would help in Nepal’s long-term development. Golchha also spoke about how the NET 2030 has included plans that will help the country prepare when it graduates to a developing country.
Meanwhile, Nyantithe praised the private sector’s capability to overcome the difficulties being faced by businesses during any crisis. She also lauded the efforts made by the private sector to save the economy that has taken a hit due to the Covid 19 pandemic. She requested FNCCI to extend its cooperation to help achieve the SDGs within the scheduled time.
