Nepal signs deal to build trans-Asian railway network   [ 2006-11-13 ]
RSS
KATHMANDU, Nov. 12: A Nepalese delegation led by Minister for Physical Planning and Works Gopal Man Shrestha has signed the letter of agreement regarding building the trans-Asian Railway Network linking the continents of Asia and Europe during the ongoing Asian Transport Minister's Conference in Busan, South Korea.

The Conference is organised by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Government of South Korea.

Forty-one transport ministers from the Asia-Pacific Region and high level government officials concerned took part in the conference. The conference was held from November 6-11.

In course of the conference, leader of the Nepalese delegation, Minister Shrestha called on the South Korean Minister for Transport and Work and held talks on matters of mutual interest.

At the meeting, the discussion was focused on construction of the Kantipath Highway in Nepal and the Korean side responded positively for providing cooperation in the construction of the highway and necessary grants for the project, the Ministry of Labour and Transport Management has stated.

Similarly, the Nepalese delegation met with Secretary General of the UNESCAP Kim Hak Sun and held talks on matters of mutual interest, including possible assistance which UNESCAP could provide in the development of the Lumbini Area.

The Nepalese delegation is scheduled to go to Seoul tomorrow and hold talks with the Korean Labour Minister Li Song Shu.

During the meeting, a request would also be made to the Korean side to include Nepal in the country's New Employment Approval System from January, 2007 and recognize Nepal as one of the resource country for receiving workers to Korea.

The industrial training quota provided by Korea to Nepal comes to a close after January, 2007. And the Ministry has expressed the hope that this visit by the Nepali delegation becomes successful in including Nepal under the new system.

It may be noted that the Council of Ministers had also passed a proposal recently requesting Korea to include Nepal in the new employment approval system of Korea.

If included under the new system, Nepal workers will be allowed to work in Korea freely for three years and enjoy facilities as per the Labour Law of Korea.

The delegation comprises Secretary at the Ministry of Physical Planning and Works, Narayan Silwal and acting Secretary at the Ministry of Labour and Transport Management, Shyam Prasad Mainali.
