In her address to the annual programme of Japanese Universities Alumni Association Nepal (JUAAN) and the closing of Golden Jubilee ceremony in the capital on Saturday, Minister Sharma, also the spokesperson of the government, said Nepal should put extra efforts to graduate to the status of developed country.
“We will now take ahead the journey of prosperity by optimally mobilizing the resources and using latest technology and innovations”, Minister Sharma said, “Since our friendly neighbour is being established as a developed country, we are still in the list of developing countries. The status should not last longer”.
Minister Sharma mentioned that the members of JUAAN were substantially contributing to Nepal’s health, education, engineering, policy making and other fields.
“I urge JUAAN to initiate discussion how Nepal should learn from Japanese experience. The government expects JUAAN’s concrete contributions to the country’s prosperity”, Minister Sharma said.

Mentioning that most of the Nepali youths going abroad for studies were paying more attention to work than studies, she asked the students to lay emphasis on study along with jobs. “There are complaints over the rising trend of giving importance to works.
