Ambitious – Check!
Realistic – Hmmm!
Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai recently unveiled a development plan, a vision paper on Thursday which largely focuses on developing infrastructure and creating employment opportunities. Here are few of the aims of the paper:
- Kathmandu – Terai Fast Track Road
- Mid – Hill Highway
- Second International Airport Outside Kathmandu – Nijgadh
- Melamchi Drinking Water Project
- North – South Highways
- Power Generation also high on the agenda
Ambitious right? And that’s only few from the 55 page long ”Immediate Action Plan for Economic Development and Prosperity”. The outcome of all these development’s hope to create 677,000 new jobs in 17 different areas. Now one of the best target’s out of this whole vision is the government planning to open the track of Kathmandu – Terai Fast track and the Mid – Hill highway by the end of this fiscal year. Traveling by road will hopefully be much quicker!
What do you think should be top on the priority list? Maybe more focus on energy!
