Nepalese interested in import from Lithuania
Head of the delegation, member of the board of the Nepalese chamber of commerce ICC Nepal Naresh Shrestha says that they rather prefer imported goods than those produced locally.
"Lithuania can offer goods of excellent quality for much more competitive prices than Central Europe countries, such as Germany or France. Nepal is particularly interested in technical, engineering and agriculture products," he said. He also pointed out that the shuttle train Saule (Sun) is one of Lithuania's advantages as it connects Asia and Europe.
Director General of the Lithuanian Business Confederation Algimantas Akstinas says that Nepal is a little known but a very promising country.
"It is a promising market of 30 million consumers. Nepal is the gates to China and India, two countries that have tremendous potential," he said.
Linas Lasiauskas, head of the Lithuanian Apparel and Textile Industry Association which actively cooperates with Nepalese businessmen says that Lithuania could become a strategic partner to Nepal, opening up ways to the entire European market for them.
"They are very interested in Lithuania. What interests them most of all about export is Nepalese handcrafted goods because this branch of industry is highly developed in their country. Meanwhile, when it comes to import, they want to bring in goods, reported ELTA/LETA
