Washington Nepal Forum (WNF) presents, Nepal – Opportunities Amidst Chaos An Interaction with Sujeev Shakya
Nepal has gone through a turbulent year. A major earthquake struck in April 2015 that killed
9,000 people injured thousands and razed villages to the ground. The political parties were
forced to save face by coming together to draft the pending constitution, which has been one of
the most expensive constitution making processes in the world. A constitution was promulgated
on September 20, 2015 amidst stiff opposition from the Madhesi community of Nepal lowlands
and questions on rights of women and minorities. The Madhesi community that has a majority in
the border towns, have shut down supply lines to Kathmandu valley and other cities since
August 2015 and India is alleged to be backing this by an informal embargo especially on letting
petroleum products to leave the borders. Nepal is suffering from a supply quake after a
devastating earthquake. However, a country of 30 million resilient people still provide
opportunities for investments and economic developments as the history of past six and a half
decades has shown that the only constant in Nepal is political instability.
Mr. Sujeev Shakya, Chair of Nepal Economic Forum and author of Unleashing Nepal will
share his perspectives. Mr. Shakya is also the CEO of beed management, a Nepal based
international management consulting and advisory firm and Senior Advisor to Bower Group
Asia, a Washington DC based advisory firm.
