NBAUK Press Release – 1st May 2008, London


Dear Business Colleagues,

On behalf of all Nepalese business men and women residing in the UK, we would like to congratulate the people of Nepal, the participating political parties and all the winning candidates on the successful completion of the historic Constituent Assembly (CA) election. We would also extend commiserations to all groups and individuals that accepted the challenge of this important democratic exercise, but were unable to win a seat at the upcoming Assembly.  A special note of congratulations must go to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) for enduring the hardship of taking a bold decision of participating in the mainstream democratic process and then becoming the largest single political party in the Assembly.

We would take this opportunity to urge the winning political parties to ensure that the new constitution fully and completely represents the will of the business people. Further, we welcome the commitments expressed by the CPN(M) on teaming up with private sector, making tireless efforts in bringing in foreign investments and creating a favourable environment for developing new and existing businesses. We also welcome the commitments of Nepali Congress, CPN (UML) and all other parties for their share of future developments in the political, economic and financial sectors of the country.

We ask the Government of Nepal not to take hasty decisions of promulgating adverse polices for the Nepalese commerce and industries that will harm the growth of its overall economy, while we stress the need for the security apparatus to effectively thwart all types of harassment to the local, national and multinational businesses from different corners by guaranteeing adequate security for them. Finally, we would assure that NBAUK will extend its full cooperation to the future government of Nepal

It also aims to represent Nepalese business communities at various forums and boards.

NBAUK will attempt to ensure that all Nepalese businesses in the UK are aware of the help and support that are available to them through NBAUK. It would only be possible if it could be ensured that business men and women from all sectors of our community became involved in our unique endeavours.

NBAUK membership is widely accessible to an incorporated or unincorporated body of persons or an individual currently engaged or aspiring to engage in business and trade, including provision of professional services in the United Kingdom.

The NBAUK will host regular meetings and AGMs to be followed by Annual Dinner and Awards ceremony, which are considered to be the most prestigious occasion in the organisation's events calendar.  The award ceremony, in particular will appreciate the most successful businesses and entrepreneurs in the community.
