As the Speaker claimed, country's enterprise and business was getting back to its track after COVID-19 crisis and on this backdrop, business community are expected to do their works with patience.
"A competent business person can rightly guide the society," the Speaker said and called the attention of the business community to engage in entrepreneurship by abiding by the State laws and rules.
Chief Secretary Shanker Das Bairagi said the government was supporting for the promotion and extension of the business sector. He pledged to leave no stone unturned to take efforts for addressing issues in the business and industrial sector.
Chamber President Rajendra Malla stated that nation's economy was on the path of revival with COVID-10 infection slowing down. "Pressure on multiple sectors could not be denied in the absence of effective implementation of the budget and monetary policy."
Increasing import and weak export and lack of expected foreign assistance and investment have led to the crisis of foreign currency at home. Nation's trade deficit is beyond recovery, according to him.
He pointed out the need of government action to find out proper solutions to the problem. "The Chamber is ever ready to submit practical suggestions for coping with existing economic issues.
