Kamala Sarup: Nepalese Contribution On Development

Nepalese Contribution On Development

By Kamala Sarup

Nepalese are more concerned about the socio-economic development of Nepal. They have been playing a crucial role in inspiring the local people and have been contributing to the Nepalese economy of development programs like schools, and, agriculture etc. The trend of investing in such development program is becoming more and more strong. The role of Nepalese investment in accelerating economic growth is by way of infusion of technology and development practices. Nepalese despite the violent situation have been working hard to promote economy in Nepal.

Nepalese have been trying to contribute greatly in improving the quality of life. In return, they are not adequately recognised by the government.

Even in particular, countries with too many mountains like Nepal with an unfavorable geography, or culture, or economy is severely handicapped to make sufficient technological advances that increase the wealth and living standards of its people are unlikely to become richer relative to other countries, although we can certainly hope to become richer because of the inevitable trade of cheaper goods and services. Thus, our investment on development that produces more and better goods and services for its own people and for producing goods and services for trade with foreigners.

As we know Nepal has gone through a cycle of violence and political uncertainty. But the Nepalese are trying to understand what are the faults in the state that sustains insurgency. The Government, development organizations should not waste time in reaching across to rural Nepalese living in abject poverty. We need to take a leadership role in identifying the long-term and short-term projects uniting people and enhancing the economy.

A successful development program requires cooperation with the local body. It is necessary to have a investment on education and agricultural sectors. Education enhances one's ability to get better work and become an informed citizen, which is important in a development.

Even we know that geography, culture, and leadership are against improving the economic conditions of Nepal. To move up the ladder economically compared to other countries, our investment on technical education, like programming, which is labor-intensive, and requiring little capital equipment, and export that knowledge.

However, our investment must improve the technical competence of Nepalese people internally to make a difference economically to the entire country.

Nepal should know how Nepal can make itself popular in the global market in coordination with Nepalese. Nepal, on its part, must study the suggestions and take the necessary decisions. Effective administrations with strong policies in certain administrative sectors could play a great role in the promotion of sustainable development in the long run.
