Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) will host the 26th annual conference of the Confederation of Asia-Pacific Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CACCI) in Kathmandu on October 3-5.
About 300 business leaders from 27 countries of the region will participate in the three-day jamboree.
FNCCI is hosting the conference during Nepal Investment Year 2012-13 to attract Asia-Pacific investors, said former president of FNCCI Pradeep Kumar Shrestha. "It will provide investors the opportunity to personally judge the investment environment in the country," he said, adding that it is the best opportunity to market Nepal to potential investors.
According to him, the conference will have a special session about investment opportunities in Nepal on the second day. "Investment Board and FNCCI will highlight potential investment sectors in the session," he said. "We have requested prime minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai to chair the session."
The government has identified seven sectors including energy, tourism, agriculture, transportation and infrastructure projects as potential sectors. Investment Board has been preparing 60 projects in seven different sectors.
Similarly, the conference will provide site seeing of tourism spots and conduct a golf tournament to encourage participants to invest in tourism. "We will also provide face-to-face interaction facilities between Nepali and foreign investors," said coordinator of the conference Om Rajbhandari.
Prominent international speakers and business leaders will address the conference that emphasises on 'a vision for shared prosperity.' They will highlight the investment environment along with returns in the country, he added.
