Minister for Communication and Information Technology, Rekha Sharma, presented the Bill before the session on behalf of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal who also takes charge of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies.  The Minister proposed the session to pass the document. 

Sonam Gyaljen Sherpa demanded the government present a clear modality of investment for the people of the buffer zone.

Tul Prasad Bishwakarma urged the government to bear in mind the existing Foreign Act while proceeding with the Bill while Bhagawati Neupane stressed the need for cooperation among the federal, province, and local governments in the course of implementing a project or operating industry along the buffer zones.

In response to lawmakers' queries, Minister Sharma said the amendment of some laws was mandated as per Nepal's commitments to enabling the investment atmosphere in the country it made during the Investment Summit held on April 28 and 29. 

She said, revisions to the National Park Act, 2039 BS and the Forest Act are necessary and the relevant issues raised here will be further discussed and clarified during the amendment of those acts. 

The NA is scheduled to meet again at 1:15 pm on Thursday, July 11.
