Bhimduttanagar,4 Dec 2014: Minister for Industry, Mahesh Basnet, has underscored the need for a steadfast collaboration between the private sector and Industry Ministry to address the issues prevailing in the industrial sector in the country.
Minister Basnet expressed the opinion after inaugurating the 26th general assembly of the Kanchanpur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Kanchanpur.
The Minister was of the belief that the Industry Sector was least prioritized owing to the indifference of the political parties.
“The Ministry for Industry only receives 0.5 per cent of the total budget,” said Basnet, adding that there was a struggle among the parties for the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Finance.
Pointing out the important role played by the private sector in the development of the industries in the country, Minister Basnet asserted that the country cannot achieve landmark development unless the overall industry and business are advanced.
