KATHMANDU: The Steering Committee for the forthcoming Nepal Investment Summit convened a meeting on Tuesday, chaired by the Committee’s Coordinator and Finance Minister, Barshaman Pun.

During the meeting, held at the Ministry of Finance in Singha Durbar, Minister Pun instructed the Investment Summit Secretariat to expedite the preparatory work to ensure the successful execution of the Investment Summit. The Summit is scheduled to be held in Kathmandu on April 28-29.
