Fact-Finding Mission
Business delegation to Nepal

Still planned // Business Delegation to Kathmandu, Nepal

Join us on this trip and gain first-hand impressions of the country and its numerous opportunities

Nepal's location between two of the largest economies of Asia - China and India - and its open border with the latter, make Nepal highly attractive for Swiss and Liechtenstein companies looking to enter or expand in the region, or for those already present in India. Numerous opportunities exist for small and medium enterprises as well as transnational companies. Make sure to learn about these possibilities first-hand and don't miss this insightful trip!

Why should you join this trip and what can you expect from it?

Nepal has shifted gears from a political transition to an economic transformation. With rising incomes, a growing middle-class, strong consumption patterns of a population of almost 30 million people, coupled with rapid urbanization, Nepal is emerging as an attractive business destination for companies the world over. There are many sectors - both traditional and non-traditional - which have a lot of scope for high growth. The proposed mission offers an excellent opportunity for participating companies to learn about Nepal and engage in opportunity scouting and high-level networking.

Highlights of the trip - with the possibility of requesting tailor made options - are:

  • A comprehensive stocktaking exercise on the state of the Nepali economy and private sector activity.
  • Sector-specific insights with key players from private and public sector.
  • B2B sessions with potential business partners, distributors and financial institutions
  • Interactions with high ranking officials of the Government of Nepal.
  • Site seeing including UNESCO World Heritage sites

Who should travel with us to Nepal?

This mission is aimed at companies from Switzerland and Liechtenstein, as well as their subsidiaries based in India or Asia. The objective is for participants to gain a first-hand impression of  the country and its opportunities and to provide access to important local contacts and networks.

Why Nepal?

Switzerland has been supporting Nepal’s development endeavors over the years in various key sectors such as agriculture, rural infrastructure development, technical education and vocational training, and more recently in migration and federal state building. Since 2009, Switzerland has been represented in Nepal through an integrated Embassy, which manages both diplomatic and consular affairs, as well as the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC)’s activities in Nepal.

Nepal is a developing and aspiring nation. The country has a stable and democratically elected government and is poised to develop and modernize its infrastructure and industries, as well as improve the lives of its citizens.  This presents opportunities in virtually all industries and sectors. To name a few, opportunities present themselves especially in the areas of agriculture, tourism, information and communications technology, infrastructure, hydropower, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Nepal’s aspiring and growing middle class creates opportunities in finance and banking, fintech, F&B, fashion, lifestyle and even luxury products.

In summary, the opportunities are vast and now is the perfect time to explore Nepal as a potential market for Swiss and Liechtenstein companies.
