KATHMANDU, April 15: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the construction of tunnels has a significant role in the enhancement of road connectivity.

In his address to a ceremony organized to mark a breakthrough of the Nagdhunga Tunnel on Monday, the prime minister said the achievement is a significant milestone in the area of infrastructure development.

This kind of road connectivity will play a crucial role in meeting the national goals for promoting interconnectivity for convenient and affordable travel, for promoting geographical and democratic closeness, and for maintaining provincial balance in terms of development, according to the prime minister. 

 He said that the government will pursue a policy of prioritizing the construction of tunnel passages, flyovers, and underpasses along the national highways to establish advanced road connectivity.

Similarly, the head of the government took time to say that the latest economic indicators suggest hopes in efforts to achieve prosperity. 

He claimed that the revenue collection is improving. The reduction in fuel imports with the promotion of electric vehicles, noticeable progress in cement export, a rise in exports of corrugated zinc sheets and steel, a rise in the arrival of tourists, and the expansion of housing and apartment businesses outside Kathmandu Valley have spread a positive message to the economic sphere.

PM Dahal called one and all to create a wider hope for advancing toward the establishment of good governance, social justice, and prosperity by overthrowing the pessimistic narrative that nothing will happen.

The prime minister also expressed his hope that the Third Investment Summit that Nepal is hosting on April 28-29 will explore the potential for investment in Nepal's development in the international forums.
