Stating that Nepal and India share special historic, cultural and religious relations, he urged business community from India to tie up with the Nepali trade community as well.  

He urged the delegation to begin the cooperation of a next level and try to take the bilateral trade relations to a new height. "Nepal and India have abundant possibilities for consolidating the business ties. And I hope today's interaction will help take the level of mutual trade cooperation to a new height."
