KATHMANDU, Feb 15: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the outflow of money from countries like Nepal for higher education should be stopped.

Addressing the inauguration of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) - North Zone Vice Chancellors' Meet 2024 & Bharat-Nepal Higher Education Summit today, he underscored the need for making efforts for retaining within the country itself a majority of the youths and the resources they have.  

"There is a huge outflow of money from countries like Nepal for higher education and this trend should now be reversed. We should create an environment conducive for those youths seeking opportunities globally," PM Dahal said, pointing out the need for re-evaluating the internationalization of higher education. 

Stating that the education sector is struggling against the challenges brought by global forces, the Prime Minister said the latest trend of students and intellectuals of the South getting drawn to the universities of the North shows that the latter have invested much resources in skill and education development.

"The balance of higher education is seen tilted towards the North. Although the education system of the North has attracted international students, this situation cannot last long," said PM Dahal.
