Kathmandu,6 July: The Confederation of Nepali Industries (CNI) has suggested a monetary policy, which targets payment and trade balance and adopts a democratic policy for foreign loan and infrastructure development.
The policy should also help in the implementation of pro private sector policy put forward by the government, they proposed. The size of a refinancing fund should be increased to Rs 100 billion, and at least 30 percent of the fund amount should be set aside for export-based industries, it has demanded with the Nepal Rastra Bank.
