MAKING his first foreign trip after returning to power in February, Nepal Prime Minister K P Oli made a strong pitch for Indian businessmen to invest in his country by benefiting from its economic liberalisation and being a safe destination for foreign investment.On their arrival on a three-day visit at the IGI Airport here, Oli and his wife Radika Shakya were received by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Viewed as an important visit amidst a strain in ties, Oli had an informal meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The two leaders were believed to have discussed bilateral and regional issues, especially ones that have bedevilled bilateral relations.Oli also met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and discussed ‘various dimensions of Nepal-India relations’, according to the Nepalese Embassy here.

In his first official engagement in Delhi, Oli interacted with representatives of the Indian business community. The Nepal Prime Minister said investment in any sector is highly profitable in Nepal and it also provides huge market for investors.
