Dr. Barbara Hendricks, German Minister for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, has underlined the need of all the Nepalis to take part in the local level elections.


Talking to media persons, this morning, before leaving for Bhutan on completion of her four-day visit, Minister Hendricks expressed hope that Nepal’s local election would help deepen democracy at the grassroots. 


Minister Dr. Hendricks said that the objective of her visit was to further strengthen long-standing bilateral friendship and cooperation between Nepal and Germany, and to get first-hand information on the progress made in environment and forest related development projects supported by the government of Germany in Nepal. She termed the visit a successful one.


She further said Germany is eager to support a Himalayan Regional Conference on Soil Conservation in Kathmandu this year, on which further works have to be done.
