SINDHUPALCHOK: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has stated that economic reforms will accelerate with the implementation of the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2024/25.

Following the inauguration of a modern building for Chautara Hospital today, Prime Minister Dahal highlighted that the forthcoming fiscal year's budget encourages production, productivity, and employment. "We have made considerable progress since the establishment of the republic. There has been a qualitative shift from the infrastructure sector to the public sector, including health and education," he elaborated.

The Prime Minister shared, "The budget for the upcoming fiscal year has announced that Nepal has now embarked on a new phase of economic reforms."

He added that a qualitative improvement in the service delivery of hospitals has been observed in recent times. The Prime Minister said that the presence of healthy citizens suggests that the country's economy and society are healthy, adding that a populace that is physically and mentally fit can make significant contributions to national development. With this principle in mind, the government has prioritised the enhancement of the health sector, he stated. "Noticeable improvements in health indicators in a short period is the achievement of the republic system."

"I am familiar with the villages, settlements, cliffs, and the overall geography of the district."
