Former Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Tamrat Layne, visited Rupakot and Begnas Lake in panoramic Pokhara City.

Layne has come Nepal leading a 12-member delegation including former executive officer of American Express, a popular commercial organisation. His delegation had visited prime tourism hubs of Lekhanath on Sunday.

In course of his three- ay visit, the ex-PM’s delegation also made a feasibility study for foreign investment in Pokahara, shared Padma Raj Poudel, a young entrepreneur and social worker.

The delegation had expressed confidence noting the country’s economic level would be boosted following the establishment of a stable government.

The Ethiopian delegation drew a conclusion that Nepal had big potential to reap immoderate benefits from tourism and agriculture sectors.

“Tourism and agriculture could play spectacular role for Nepal’s development,” said Ben Smith, former Executive Officer of American Express and a member of visiting delegation.

Meanwhile, the delegation extended an aid of USD 2,500 for poor and genuine students of Ananda Jyoti Secondary School in Begnas, Pokhara Metropolitan City-31.
