KATHMANDU, April 23: Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation Pampha Bhusal has said that youth entrepreneurs should work for the country's economic and social development. 

At an inaugural ceremony of the Eighth Women Entrepreneurs’ Conference organized by Nepal Youth Entrepreneurs Forum in Kathmandu on Saturday, Minister Bhusal laid emphasis on the need to expand a network of youth entrepreneurs organizations at all 753 local levels in order to connect the new generation with production. 

"Production should be expanded to promote export. Youths across the nation should be involved in production for the same," she said.

Expressing confidence that the attraction of the young generation in agro production would steer the country to the path of prosperity, Minister Bhusal said that youths should be organized and encouraged towards enterprises. 

She stated that women entrepreneurs should be capable in handling entrepreneurship, not only in politics, education and health sector. She added that women have been lagging far behind due to prevailing discrimination. 

An environment to compete with each other could be created only if there are equal rights for women and men in political, health, education and employment sectors. Minister Bhusal mentioned that women should pay attention to the implementation of economic and social rights by developing their capacity.  

The government should help industries expand agro productions and productivity as Nepal as an agricultural country has been importing agro-products worth Rs 300 billion every year.  

Forum Chairperson Udip Shrestha assured that he would inspire youths across the nation to involve in entrepreneurship activities in coming days.
