In spite of making many achievements in the last two and a half decades as a noted industrialist, present chairman of the Confederation of Nepalese Industrialists Binod Kumar Chaudhary still sees himself as unsatisfied about his work. He considers what others see as his big business empire is just peanuts.
“My wish to be a self-respected industrialist like in other countries is yet to be fulfilled. For the last twenty five years, my campaign to be a self respected industrialist has continued,” said Chaudhary in a program to release his book Udhyami Ko Ankha Ma Arthtantra (Economy in the Eye of an Industrialist).
At a function attended by personalities including former and present finance ministers and intellectual Himalaya Sumsher Rana, he dedicated the book based on his experience to Nepal’s overall economic development.
In two and a half decades, Chaudhary saw all kinds of ups and downs. He was elected the president of the Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce and Industries for two years. Then, he organized a group of industrialists and set up the Confederation of Nepalese Industries as another umbrella organization to unite the industrialists. His charismatic leadership helped uplift the image of both the bodies.
After completing his high school education at a local school of Kathmandu, Chaudhary started work as a native industrialist with an inner feeling to make Nepal an economically prosperous country. Chaudhary was also a member of the recently dissolved Constituent Assembly, where he contributed a lot in shaping economic policies.
Chairperson of the Lunkaran Das Chaudhary Academy Basanta Chaudhary highlighted the book. The book is full of Chaudhary’s own experiences and encounters of the last two and a half decades.
