“There can be no successful business without successful society and there can be no successful society without successful business”
Adhering 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.
Peace, Security and Rule of Law
NBI collaborates with the stakeholders to promote peace, security and rule of law for all.
Responsible and Sustainable Business
NBI advocates for the responsible and sustainable business practice in Nepal in public and private organizations.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
NBI has a faith that the country can progress with innovation and entrepreneurship.
