Nepal Economic Growth Agenda (NEGA)

Nepal Economic Growth Agenda (NEGA) was initiated in August 2011 with the mission of bringing into discourse priority economic agendas into mainstream political economic debate and among various stakeholders. This was a major step in Samriddhi’s efforts to raise economic agenda in Nepal through which the Foundation committed itself to an annual analysis of growth constraints and formulation of policy options for reform. This larger mission of the initiative was at enabling knowledge led change and reform.

Nepal Economic Growth Agenda (NEGA) was launched in partnership with the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the first NEGA report was released in July 2012. The goal of this annual analysis is to facilitate the creation of a competitive and conducive business environment for Nepal, thereby leading to economic growth and prosperity.

From 2012 to 2014, this annual effort has covered the following research areas:
