NRNA annual meeting starts in Switzerland
Ambassador of Nepal to Switzerland, Shanker D. Bairagi, inaugurated the 5th annual General Meeting of the Non-Resident Nepalese Association (NRNA) Switzerland amidst a function organized in Geneva Sunday.

We should preserve the achievements of the past and look to the future for NRN's enhanced role in the socio-economic development of Nepal, he stressed.
