KATHMANDU: Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security, Gokarna Bista, has urged the South Koreans to invest in the sectors that help create employments for Nepali youths because Nepal had now political stability.

Addressing a workshop organized jointly by the South Korean Embassy and Ankur Nepal here today, Minister Bista viewed that there was huge potential on Nepal’s agriculture, tourism and minerals.

“Korean industrialists and entrepreneurs can invest in Nepal to help generate jobs. Private sectors from both countries can expand the industrial and trade relations between the two countries,” he emphasized.

Nepali workers have earned a reputation in the international labor market, he said, urging the Nepali workers not to overstay in Korea after the expiry of work permit.

As the Minister shared, although billion of money was brought in as remittance in Nepal, most of it was spent on the unproductive sector. The remittance needs to be used for capital formation in the country, he underscored.
