The eighth edition of the Made in Pakistan Expo has opened at the Trade Center at local Tripureshwar from Wednesday. Various goods and products, especially leather goods and handicraft items are kept on display and sale in the exhibition.
The exhibition is organized with the goal of promoting Nepal-Pakistan bilateral ties and trade.
The Embassy of Pakistan here has been coordinating and facilitating this exhibition since the last some years.
Although the diplomatic relations between Nepal and Pakistan were established in 1960, there has not been a significant growth in the bilateral trade over the years. The volume of bilateral trade between the two SAARC member countries in the last five years was worth 48 million US dollars. Nepal had exported goods worth approximately 4.5 million US dollars to Pakistan last year.
Minister for Commerce Min Bahadur Biswokarma and Pakistan's ambassador to Nepal Mazhar Javed jointly inaugurated the exhibition.
In his opening remarks on the occasion, Biswokarma expressed his belief that the exhibition would help further expand the bilateral trade and ties between Nepal and Pakistan. He added that the ties should be expanded at the people's level.
Chief Secretary of Nepal Government Rajendra Kishore Chhetri underscored the need of further boosting the bilateral trade between the two countries which are the founding members of the SAARC.
The exhibition will last for seven days. This kind of exhibition has been taking place since the last eight years.
President of Nepal-Pakistan Friendship Society, Himalaya Shumsher Rana, among other speakers had wished success of the exhibition. RSS

Amendment of Education Act: A betrayal to capable candidates
Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

The regional integration initiatives & Nepal
For the small landlocked economies, such as Nepal, regional integration is more of a necessity than a policy option. The ideal way forward for Nepal to gain most out of the economic integration would be to identify the key areas in which Nepal could contribute and facilitate the promotion of those sectors.

Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
