Launch of IPRI 2012

Samriddhi, The Prosperity Foundation released the IPRI 2012 in Nepal with a press conference and an interaction with experts’ opinions at DECC, Kathmandu.

Executive director of IP Initiative Madhu Soodan Poudyal was also present for the event and talked of how right to property would inevitably attract more foreign direct investment.
