“There can be no successful business without successful society and there can be no successful society without successful business”
Adhrering to this norm, National Business Initiative (NBI) was formed by fourteen major nepalese business associations and individual companies as an apolitical and non-profit-making organization in 2005.
NBI seeks to strengthen the role and capacity of the Nepalese Private Sector to contribute in sustainable peace in Nepal. We do so by mobilizing the existing private sector bodies at local and higher levels, generating new knowledge relating to private sector on softer issues around peace, conflict & development and creating demand as well as support for positive change in the society.
NBI works in four thematic areas, viz,
(i) Peace Building and Constitution Making
(ii) Sustainable Business Practices
(iii) Enabling Business Environment and
(iv) Inclusive Growth and Economic Opportunities.
Currently, NBI members comprise of 17 National Business Associations and 18 Individual Companies.
