Ease the Environment To Bring More Women Into Entrepreneurship

How to empower women?  Declare 2013 as “Women Entrepreneurship Development Year.”  And in the case of Nepal, ease the environment to bring more women into entrepreneurship.

Minister for Industry Anil Jha said he is positive about the proposal. He said, “I am also positive about necessary amendments in policies that would ease the environment for women entrepreneurs.” Suresh Kumar Basnet, president of Nepal Chamber of Commerce (NCC) requested the government to seriously implement policies to bring more women into entrepreneurship.
