Centre for Nepal Studies UK (CNSUK)’s latest publication, 'Directory 2015 of Nepali (Individuals, Businesses and Organisations) in the UK', was released here at a function by Professor Surya Subedi, OBE.
The directory was released in a gathering organised by Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) UK to network PhD-holder Nepalis in the UK for their mutual benefits as well as to discuss the best ways that they could utilise their knowledge and skills for the development of Nepal. About 65 people, including NRNA’s officials and members were present in the programme. Dr Chandra Laksamba and Dr Krishna Adhikari from CNSUK participated in the programme, in which they organised the launching, and a free copy of the publication was distributed to all participants.
‘Directory 2015’ is the fourth edition of the very first directory that CNSUK published in 2010. The directory includes details of businesses and social organisations run by Nepalis or friends of Nepal in the UK and some 3,000 contact numbers of individuals, who consented to publish their contacts. Apart from facilitating communication with and among Nepalis in the UK, the Directory has also been a vital resource material to planners, policy makers and researchers alike.
CNSUK aims to continue to publish new editions of the directory in every two years and has urged all interested individuals and organisations to contact to include their details in the future publications.
