President of NADA Automobiles Association Anjan Shrestha asked the government to pay due attention for the development of automobile sectors as it has been contributing around 20 per cent of the revenue generation to the government’s total revenue collection.
The sector has not only contributed in the revenue but also create job opportunities to the large numbers of people.
The exhibition will provide an appropriate forum for the automobiles business sector to showcase their vehicles, accessories and other services among the prospective customers. It is an equally ideal and trustworthy platform for the prospective buyers to know, observe and enquire about their choices to make smart decision.
Senior Vice President of Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) Shekhar Golcha said that the economic development would develop if the automobiles sector also got opportunity to flourish.
“Many issues have been raised whether the automobile sector is productive or unproductive in the country. In my personal opinion, the automobile is definitely a productive sector because there is no possibility of enhancing the trade and business without having four wheelers,” said Golcha.
