KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said the country’s prosperity was possible only through the joint efforts of the government and the private sector.
Addressing the Commercially Important Person (CIP) Honour and Decoration ceremony organized by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies here today, the PM also reiterated that the government was ready to join hands with the private sector as well as to address their difficulties and inconveniences.
“There was a problem in the export of betel nut, ginger and palm oil some time back. The problem is resolved at present and the government is facilitating in various sectors related to export,” he said giving examples of the government’s initiation towards resolving problems seen in the export trade.
Calling on the private sectors to work towards production growth, job creation, import substitution and export promotion, the Prime Minister assured of the government’s full support to the private sector.
“Be assured and carry out work with confidence. Tell me if any difficulty arose,” he said reassuring the business community.
Stating the country was moving ahead towards the phase of economic prosperity, PM Oli asserted that the forthcoming efforts would be centered on good governance and economic development.
“Now we are enthusiastic about the new path. Good governance and development would not be possible unless the entire country geared for development works. There is a need for joint cooperation from the private sector for development and prosperity. We should put in our collective efforts for good governance and country’s development,” he opined.
As he said, the government and private sector held common understanding in regard to development and prosperity affairs, and now they should be together for the promotion of good governance.
He made it clear that good governance was never a hurdle to development and prosperity, urging the private sector to follow transparency, fairness and a rule of law.
