A delegation from the American Camber of Commerce in India arrived in Kathmandu for a three-day visit. The trade mission, the first by a U.S. business organization in 13 years, explored investment and trade opportunities in Nepal. This important visit demonstrated the renewed American interest in Nepal's economy. Building on the recently-signed U.S.-Nepal Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA), the Embassy hopes to expand the economic ties between the United States of Nepal.
Nine U.S. companies included in the delegation, including Johnson & Johnson, GE Healthcare, Rockwell Automation, Monsanto, and Bell Helicopter. The delegates will meet with the Prime Minister, senior Government officials, political leaders, private sector companies, and U.S. Embassy officials.
