PROJECT DESCRIPTION

USAID Trade and Competitiveness (Udhyam Nepal) Activity is a five-year project to increase Nepali private sector participation in targeted global value chains by making them more competitive, resilient, and sustainable. The Activity will chart a new growth path for private companies by supporting them to capitalize on global opportunities – targeting quality and high value exports (of products and services).
