KATHMANDU, Jan 18: Civil Trade Center (CTC), a shopping mall promoted by the Civil Group, was formally inaugurated on Friday, following a soft launch earlier on Monday.
Suraj Vaidya, president of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI), inaugurated the mall amidst a function held at its premises.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Ichhya Raj Tamang, president of the Civil Group, said the mall was a public property and nobody would be referred to as owner and worker at the complex. "Everyone will receive equal treatment at the mall," said Tamang.
To celebrate the opening of the mall, CTC organized ´CTC Mega Fusion Musical Program´ on the day with various entertaining programs like fashion shows, dances, magic shows and comedy shows, among others.
Renowned singers like Fatte Man Rajbhandari, Reema Gurung, Udaya Sotang, Manila Sotang, Suresh Kumar, Mingma Sherpa, Salima Shrestha and Indira Joshi, among others, took part in the event. The special attraction of the event, however, was performance by former Indian Idol Prashant Tamang.
