Chiranjibi Nepal: Financial institutions/alternative investments - creating value for money

Special address by Dr Chiranjibi Nepal, Governor of the Central Bank of Nepal, at the Nepal Investment Summit 2017, Kathmandu, 3 March 2017.

It gives me an immense pleasure to be here to address this session on "Financial Institutions/Alternative Investments: Creating Value for Money." We have organized this Summit at a time when the Nepalese economy is striving for attaining higher growth and tracing the path for sustainable development. The recent data show a rebound in economic activity. All three major sectors of the economy; agriculture, industry and services are on the mode of recovery after the lackluster performance last year. The expected rebound reflects the resilience of the Nepalese economy to major shocks that it had to bear last year.
