Speaking on the occasion, Speaker Comhairle said growing links between Ireland and Nepal were formally recognised at the parliamentary level with the establishment of the Friendship Group. The group would serve as a valuable platform to develop links between Ireland and Nepal.
The Speaker said the Irish people who have visited Nepal praise the country’s unique nature and diverse culture. He also stressed the need for exchange of visits so that experiences can be shared between the two countries.
Convenor Sullivan TD said the parliamentary group would work actively to promote trade links between Ireland and Nepal, explore areas of collaboration between the two countries, extend parliamentary cooperation and arrange exchange of high-level visits.
President of the Nepal-Ireland Society, Deepesh Man Shakya said the Nepali community in Ireland was excited by the development.
