Govt all set to form Public Private Partnership Center

REPUBLICA
The center will facilitate projects to be developed under PPP model

KATHMANDU, July 22: Preparations are underway to establish Public Private Partnership (PPP) Center, under the chairmanship of a member of the National Planning Commission (NPC), to facilitate PPP programs.

“The government will soon table PPP Bill, which will be consolidated with the Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) Act, 2063 BS, in the parliament. The bill envisages opening PPP cells in every ministry for forwarding the proposed PPP programs to the center,” Lal Shankar Ghimire, joint secretary of NPC, told Republica. “The PPP Center will evaluate PPP proposal documents and forward it to PPP cells in concerned ministries. The ministries will then forward the proposals to the PPP center for approval.” [More]

Raj Kumar Shakya, an artist and craftsman, recently returned from Bhutan after the successful completion of the 155-feet-tall statue of Guru Padmasambhava located on the eastern side of Bhutan on the Takilia Hill of Lhuntche Dzong.

“It took four years for our team of 19 Nepali artists to complete this statue,” said Shakya, adding that there were eight Bhutanese and 30 Bengali workers to help the team. The copper statue was ready after a decade of the conception of the idea.
