Kathmandu, February 9 : Tourism minister Rabindra Adhikari has said that the government is committed to accomplish all paperwork and other preliminary works for Nijgadh International Airport (NIA) within three months.
He came up with such remarks while speaking at a program held by Nepal Engineer’s Association (NEA)in the capital on Friday (February 8).
Admitting that the project has already been much delayed, he said,” The ministry is ready to rise above any challenges that may arise up during the construction.”
Speaking at a meeting organized by Nepal Engineer’s Association (NEA) in Kathmandu on Friday, Minister Adhikari said: “It is a project of top priority for the government, as it holds the promise of economic growth of the country.”
He also made it a point to say that the project’s Detailed Feasibility Study and Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) ensure that it will not trigger any serious environmental damage.
According to him, the government will build the airport either through government-to-government (G2G) partnership on the project or on its own.
