Ms. Arpita Nepal, Director, Research and Publications, spoke on ‘Does Economic Freedom affect Kirana Pasals in Nepal?’ at Martin Chautari on August 5, 2014. The aim of the discussion was to link retailers to policymakers to discuss what changes in the current policy regime would help the retail industry grow. The talk was based on the Foundation’s research on MSMEs.
“We might not have all the solutions, but we want to help. Our objective is to link the retailers to the policymakers to discuss what changes in the current policy regime would help the retail businesses grow which would eventually lead Nepal towards economic growth.” – Arpita Nepal at Martin Chautari.
More than 25 participants were present at the discussion, who listened to the stance put forward by Ms. Nepal.
