Partial relaxation of import ban has created confusion, experts say

Nepal Government has decided to lift its four-month-old import ban on some items. But the entry of other products is still blocked. Talking to Kathmandu Post, Dr. Posh Raj Pandey, Chairperson, SAWTEE said that the import ban on selected goods is definitely bringing distortion in the economy. He further added, "Due to the porous southern border, the government has not been able to control smuggling. The market is flooded with counterfeit products."
