Kathmandu, Aug 17: The CPN (Maoist Centre) has sought suggestions from experts in the related field with the aim of instilling confidence to do something within the country. Organising an interaction with the theme of ‘Country’s economic development model and development programme’ here, the Finance and Planning Department of the party has called for suggestions from experts in sectors including agriculture, tourism, energy, water resources, information technology, physical infrastructure, water resources, engineering and commerce for the government to improve the current economic situation of the country.
On the occasion, the party department chief and former Finance Minister Barsha Man Pun stressed the need for stopping the outflow of qualified workforces to foreign countries by creating job opportunities especially through industrialisation at home. It is getting late to go for a policy to utilise workforce within the home country.
Similarly, claiming that many plans of the previous five-year plans failed, Vice Chairperson of the National Planning Commission Min Bahadur Shrestha called for bringing quality in the new plan. High ambitious plans should not be included in the coming 16th Plan learning from past failure, he viewed. A report involving the suggestions collected will be handed to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’, said the department member and economist DP Dhakal.
