UK Int’l Development minister chooses Nepal for his maiden overseas trip
In his first overseas visit since his appointment earlier this month, British Minister for International Development Alan Duncan is due to arrive in Kathmandu on Wednesday.
During his two-day stay the Duncan will familiarise himself with the UK’s development programmes in Nepal and lend the new UK government’s support to Nepal’s peace process, a press release issued by the British Embassy said.
During his two day visit, the Minister will meet with Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal, Chairman of UCPN-Maoist Puspa Kamal Dahal and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Sujata Koirala. He will also interact with Constituent Assembly members.
“We are delighted that the Minister has chosen Nepal for his first overseas visit. This visit underpins how important development is for Nepal, our continuing commitment and support to development in Nepal, and reinforces our good relations with Nepal,” said Sarah Sanyahumbi, Head of Office for DFID Nepal.
