Addressing the program organized to hand-over the letter, Ambassador Dr. Sharma urged the entrepreneurs to prepare statistics how the US government is benefitting from the Nepali Entrepreneurs. “If you prepare statistics like how much money you have invested and how many people are getting employment from your enterprise, then it would be easier for the Embassy to lobby with the US government for the benefits of Nepali entrepreneurs,” Dr. Sharma added.

Speaking at the program members of the Organization informed that they would prepare all the information as outlined by the Ambassador and work for the benefit of Nepali entrepreneurs.
