BHAIRAHAWA, RUPANDEHI: Nepali entrepreneurs have requested assistance in exporting Nepali products to India. This appeal was made by the business community following various hindrances imposed by India on the export of Nepali goods, citing various reasons.

At the 'Nepal-India Economic Partnership Conference' held in Bhairahawa on Tuesday, several speakers discussed the barriers India has been placing on the export of Nepali commodities. Ezaz Alam, President of Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI) Lumbini province, stated, "India had previously obstructed the export of soap, and now cement."

He mentioned that the Indian authorities have been questioning the quality of Nepali goods, including herbal products and cement exported to India. During the event, speakers expressed their grievances, noting that businesspersons have been treated poorly by customs staff and security personnel from both countries at the border.

Krishna Prasad Sharma, President of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) Lumbini province, spoke at the event, saying, "The issue should be resolved through collaboration between the business communities of both countries." He called on the relevant agencies to take the initiative to establish a quarantine office in Lucknow, India.

Manjeev Singh Puri, former Ambassador of Nepal to India, encouraged businesspersons to focus on producing quality goods. Representatives from Nepali and Indian business organisations and associations participated in the conference.
