By Express News Service

VISAKHAPATNAM: A Nepal delegation consisting of under secretaries Buddhi Prasad Upadhyaya, Dinesh Sagar Bhusal, Ram Prasad Subedi and Devi Prasad Sharma visited Visakhapatnam Port on Wednesday and held discussions with VPT deputy chairman PL Haranadh and other heads of  departments.

Haranadh explained the facilities and infrastructure at the Visakhapatnam Port through a power point presentation and invited the Nepal Government to avail of the facilities and to trade with India through the Visakhapatnam Port. The Port is a secured, transparent and e-Port and that the Nepal trade would benefit by availing of the  facilities and would provide support for meeting their logistics, Haranadh informed  the Nepal delegation.

The visiting team wanted to know the facilities and operational logistics for movement of their cargo more effectively and efficiently through the Visakhapatnam Port when compared to Kolkata Port and informed that they have found the Visakhapatnam Port  to be better and transparent and they wanted concessions and offers to inform the Nepal traders and attract more business from them.

The team also stated that, if necessary, an office accommodation at the Port would be opened for all business documentation and transactions, instead of handling the transactions from Embassy of Nepal in New Delhi, depending on the volume of cargo.

Responding to the issues, Haranadh said that their requests would be examined and necessary assistance would be extended.
