Message: Being a Board Member and a Civil-Highway Engineer and spending a significant part of career abroad, I like to wish for all students, especially future engineers and managers that let they study hard and involve actively into the construction-development industries once they complete their education. For this, nation itself should create development-friendly environment by attracting more investors, business partners and in the mean time by creating a safe and peaceful place to live and work.

Nepal is a home of natural beauty with so many other potentials and opportunities. Country still needs more excavators to dig, more cranes to lift, more engineers to build, more architects to craft and more managers to guide. So, my message to all is let’s try our best to achieve the above goal and finally become a proud citizen of a strong and a healthy nation
