KATHMANDU, May 29: An international conference on 'Marxism and  Socialism' has being held in Kathmandu on May 30-31 to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Karl Marx, the founder of Marxism.

The Nepal Communist Party and CPN (Masal) are organizing the  two-day event, which has been touted as an opportunity to send a positive  message to the world in the aftermath of the formation of Nepal's largest  communist party following the unification of the then CPN-UML and the  CPN (Maoist Center).

Information about this was shared at a press meet organized by the  conference organizing committee in Kathmandu on Monday. As stated by the committee's coordinator and NCP senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, a discussion  session on the challenges that the communist parties faced in the past, and  future policies have been scheduled during the conference. 'People's liberation and social transformation' is always in the  center of communists," he said, adding that the present focus of CPN was  on how to achieve prosperity through the means of socialism and ensure  just distribution of such gains.  Prime Minister and NCP Chairman KP Oli is scheduled to inaugurate  the event and present a paper on the topic 'Communist movement in  Nepal and revolutionary process'.
