Dipendra Kandel Initiative

Foreign Direct Investments

Foreign Direct Investment has a direct positive impact on development by contributing to the creation of decent and value-adding jobs, enhancing the skill base of host economies, facilitating the transfer of technology, knowledge, and know-how, boosting competitiveness of domestic firms and enabling their access to markets, and operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.

At the Dipendra Kandel Initiative we believe that attracting FDI is a great strategy for boosting short-run economic development. Therefore, we assist interested actors to attract investment through our projects.


Opening Market and Allowing for FDI

Reduce restrictions on FDI. Provide open, transparent and dependable conditions for all kinds of firms, whether foreign or domestic.

Setting Up IPAs

A successful Investment Promotion Agency could target suitable foreign investors and become the link between them and the domestic economy.

Targeting Sectors/Activities 

Investment and location decisions of suppliers are dependent on those of prime multinational investors in the host economy.

Strengthening Backward Linkages

Helping actors integrate into global value chains (GVCs) through targeted reforms and investments.

Financial Incentives

Offering businesses a combination of tax incentives, loans, insurance, and tax breaks in an effort to promote companies’ investment.

Encouraging FDI from Diaspora

These are also more likely to generate linkages to domestic firms and contribute to the internationalization of the host country.

Setting Up B2B Events

To strengthen the capacity of the domestic economy, it may offer financing opportunities to local suppliers for required investment.

Shaping Export Processing Zones

In a way that they spearhead into the domestic economy. 


Setting up a regulatory environment

Reducing bureaucracy and regulatory limitations within a planned framework encourages private firms investment.
