‘Least Developed Countries need more assistance from the international community’


By Ranjana Thapa Magar, KATHMANDU:- Nepal has emphasized the need for greater assistance from the international community to meet the aspirations of the least developed nations for sustainable development.
During the 76th General Assembly of the United Nations held in New York on Tuesday, the Least Developed Countries Ministerial Meeting Saturday stressed the need for Nepal to increase foreign development assistance, foreign direct investment, trade assistance, debt relief, climate finance, and technology transfer from the international community.
Addressing the meeting indirectly, Foreign Secretary Bharatraj Poudyal discussed the impact of the Karona epidemic on the world community and economy, including Nepal. “Vaccines should be available in a fair, globally accessible way,” he said.
Secretary Poudyal said that the least developed countries have to expand the scope of social security systems and develop a thriving economy with state-of-the-art industrial and technical capacity and adequate physical infrastructure to eradicate poverty, ensure the welfare of their citizens.
He said that the government was moving forward unhindered to fulfill Nepal’s long-standing aspiration to exit the group of underdeveloped nations, regardless of the price to be paid by the nation and the development assistance to be lost. He said, “Upgrading from an underdeveloped country will be an important development achievement for Nepal. Nepal is committed to making it sustainable, comfortable, and irreversible.”
Secretary Poudyal stressed the need to complete the unfinished work of the Istanbul Action Plan and formulate future plans for sustainable development while preparing for the 5th UN Conference of Least Developed Countries to be held in Doha next year.
