Enhancing Private Sector Competitiveness in the WTO Era (ECOMP)

ECOMP was launched in February 2005 and completed in January 2006. The programme aimed to increase the competitiveness of the Nepali private sector, particularly the small and medium enterprises to survive and prosper under the multilateral trading framework (WTO) through enhanced capacity to understand and respond to the requirements of the new regime. Advocacy, research, sensitization, capacity building, information dissemination, networking and alliance building were the major focus areas of the programme. This programme was supported by The Asia Foundation, Kathmandu.
