Nepal Foreign Affairs (Kathmandu June 6) : Prime Minister Sushil Koirala is inviting his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang and Indian counterpart Narendra Modi as well as United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in the donors’ conference slated for June 25, a top government source told Nepal Foreign Affairs.
Similarly, the government is inviting World Bank President Dr Jim Yong Kim, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Asian Development Bank President Takehiko Nakao in the conference.
However, it is less likely the world leaders’ participation in the conference in a short notice, the government sources said.
According to officials at the Ministry of Finance, top dignitaries from at least 41 countries have been invited in the conference.
The government decided to host the conference with the objective of garnering support from the international community especially in the reconstruction of destroyed or damaged physical infrastructures as well as rehabilitation of the tens and thousands of displaced people after the devastating earthquake on April 25.
Earlier, setting up a National Reconstruction Fund of $2 billion the government had urged the international community to support for the fund. The government has earmarked Rs 20 billion as seed money from the Fund, with a request to donor communities as well as the private sector to make necessary contributions.
