Austria to support conservation of cultural heritage in Nepal

Kathmandu, February 22

Austria has announced economic assistance to help Nepal’s cultural heritage conservation efforts.

Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs Karin Kneissl, talking to mediapersons following bilateral delegation-level talks this afternoon, said the assistance will be used to train Nepalis in the conservation of cultural heritage.

She added that 120,000 Euros will be released immediately for the protection of heritages inside the Patan Durbar Square.

“Though the assistance amount is less, it reflects Austria’s goodwill towards Nepal,” she said. According to her, Austria is interested in supporting Nepal in the post-earthquake rebuilding and physical infrastructure development efforts, and it also wishes to invest in the energy and tourism efforts.

Describing Nepal’s contribution to the United Nations peacekeeping missions as ‘incomparable’, she said Austria is committed to the promotion of multilateralism.

Similarly, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, said that during the meeting, he shared with his Austrian counterpart the major priorities of the present government. “I was happy to get reassured by the Minister of Austria’s goodwill and support towards Nepal’s development endeavors.”

He also apprised her about the government’s plan to host the Investment Summit on 29-30 March 2019, and Visit Nepal year in 2020.
