In addition, the Indonesian Ambassador said that “Business Forum” will be held also as the side-event, so that all entrepreneurs of the member countries could exchange their views and ideas as well as could share their experience for business improvement and development.  This would be an appropriate forum to be attended by the entrepreneurs of Nepal to attract investors as well as to expand the business network.

The Indonesian Ambassador expressed the hope of the President of the Republic of Indonesia for the Prime Minister of Nepal to attend the Asian-African Summit Commemoration and Prime Minister Koirala conveyed his best wishes to the Indonesian President and stated that the Prime Minister would appear at the said summit.
