Politicisation of trade unions main impediment to business promotion: Survey
A National Business Initiative (NBI) survey has said that politicisation of trade unions has been one of the top five concerns of the stakeholders for doing business.
Publicsing the findings of a nationwide Stakeholders’ Perception Survey Stakeholders’ Perception Survey amidst a function here in the capital on Wednesday, in the presence of the government and private sector representatives, NBI said some 73 percent of labourers and 80 percent of the entrepreneurs think that there should be reforms in business that would benefit all Nepalis in general.
Similarly, agriculture, education, corruption and political reforms were rated by all the stakeholders as a priority while 80 percent believed that the private sector contributed positively to both local development and the development of Nepal.
However, the survey says that most businesses and opinion leaders approved of the government’s handling of the economic/fiscal year last year.
NBI also said that these key findings can assist the private sector and the government in addressing the needs and expectations of different stakeholders and contribute to development of strategic policies and measures for issues related to private sector development.
The survey was undertaken to get a sense of the perception of labourer, opinion makers and businesses towards business reform initiatives and perceptions towards the private sector, said NBI. nepalnews.com
