Nepal-US ties

The United States has launched the USAID Trade and Competitiveness activity, a five-year program with $19 million investment that will support Nepali enterprises in targeted sectors with high growth and employment potential. Under the project, USAID will collaborate with Nepal’s Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Supplies to help businesses facilitate new trade and investment opportunities, improve their access to market-based financial and non-financial services, and boost productivity.
