Trade Policy and Economic Diplomacy in Nepal

SAWTEE implemented a project titled "Effective trade policy making and economic diplomacy in Nepal in the context of federalism" with the support of The Asia Foundation (February 2022-December 2022). The project was implemented with the overall goal of enhancing export competitiveness and improving the export performance of Nepal by forging synergy among policies of federal and subnational governments (with a focus on Province 1), and through effective economic diplomacy. It also identified institutional interventions needed to make economic diplomacy effective, with the aim of improving the export performance of Nepal. Two research reports and two policy briefs were prepared, besides organizing multipole workshops, conferences and capacity building events.
