Industrialist Ajad Shrestha is contesting for the election for the post of FNCCI president. Shrestha spoke to NEW SPOTLIGHT about his agenda.
Why did you vie for the post of FNCCI president?
My candidacy will make the whole private sector proud. It will strengthen self-esteem of businesses and heighten the nation through their healthy conduct.
Every candidate claims so. Then what new can we expect from you?Indeed, I have been involved in FNCCI for the last twenty years and I've been working for empowering the small and medium industries for more than a decade. And I've my own ideas and experiences of solving economic problems of the local community.
If you win the elections, what will be your priority area?
The foremost thing I'll do is give a full attention to tourism industry. We, the private sector, will work hand in hand with the government to make NTY a grand success. Second, I'll leave no stone unturned to attract the private institutions within and out of country to invest in our water resources. Third, agriculture needs to be professionalized. And I'll work for it. Still 70% of the total population relies on agriculture. So I'll work on developing agriculture scientifically and according to demand of the time. I, too, will pay much attention on mobilizing and managing the human resources by unleashing newer employment areas.
