Nepal is strategically located between two very vibrantly growing giant Asian economies, India and China. Nepal has been a country of entrepot trade between the two countries over a long period of history. The prospect of doing business in Nepal, a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), is therefore of high potential. And now the country has offered itself to be a transit nation between its two friendly neighbours. Nepal is a founding member of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and there is a great potential for free trade in the region under South Asian Free Trade Arrangements (SAFTA). This will provide additional opportunities for the investors in Nepal.
Nepal has huge potential in hydro-power on account of her unique mountainous terrain and perennial rivers. In a world of depleting fresh water resources, Nepal can be an oasis in the near future.

The most feasible proposition therefore is to invest in hydro-power projects to meet the domestic as well as the burgeoning neighbouring markets.
