Nepal entered a phase of high economic growth of 7.5% in 2016-17, recovering from low economic growth post-earthquake and trade disruption. Nepal is undergoing significant economic transformation, uncovering investment opportunities across a wide array of sectors. The country seeks to sustain the impressive growth rate through increased momentum in post-earthquake reconstruction and significant spending on large infrastructure projects. The current budget has allocated $600 million for the execution of National Pride Projects which includes key large infrastructure projects such as Gautam Buddha International Airport and 456MW Upper Tamakoshi Hydropower Project. Infrastructure investment will be a lucrative ground for private sector investment given the government focus on adopting Public Private Partnership (PPP) model for large infrastructure projects including hydropower, smart cities, new towns, railways and roadways.

There has been significant movement in terms of adoption of new policies and amendment of key policies impacting companies and investment channels. This study uncovers Foreign Direct Investment trend in the country and priority sectors being promoted by the government. The implications of the recent amendments made to Foreign Investment and Technology Transfer Act (FITTA), Integrated Companies Act and formulation of Integrated Intellectual Property Policy will be observed in terms of improve business environment in the country. This will potentially attract domestic and foreign investment in a wide array of sectors. Moreover, government endorsement of regional policies such as China’s One Belt One Road policy, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal (BBIN)’s Motor Vehicle Agreement, is likely to improve connectivity and trade within the region providing private sector the opportunity to tap into the larger market segment.

While hydropower and tourism has traditionally been the key sector receiving Foreign Direct Investment, remains the key sector for investment manufacturing and services sectors’ performance has been improving steadily. This study identifies investment opportunities in sectors besides hydropower such as solar power, mines and minerals, information and communication technology among others.
