The present time has been very important and historic in Nepal’s modern history. The winds of change have been taking place in the social, political and economic lives of the Nepalese people. The country is undergoing a substantial process of fundamental political, social and economic reforms and restructuring. It is my firm belief that Nepal and the Nepalese people are prepared to embark upon a new era.

The Government of Nepal has appointed me as an Ambassador of Nepal to Japan and assigned a great responsibility at this time. I believe that time has come to make some practical and meaningful steps to further consolidate Nepal’s diplomacy in promoting Nepal-Japan relations.

I am delighted to state that the Embassy of Nepal is offering its utmost service not only to our Japanese friends but also to the Nepalese brothers and sisters residing in Japan. It is my firm belief that the Embassy under my leadership, would play active, assertive, crucial and constructive roles to support and cooperate with every endeavor of the Government of Nepal.

I am determined and confident that I would work honestly and sincerely to strengthen the existing friendly relations between Nepal and Japan based on mutual respect, friendship, goodwill and cooperation and to preserve and promote the larger national interest of Nepal and the Nepalese people.

The Embassy of Nepal in Tokyo highly values the cooperation and generosity extended by the people and Government of Japan aftermath the devastating earthquakes in April 2015 and its powerful aftershocks then after. The Embassy also sincerely appreciates positive roles played by the Nepalese and Nepalese communities in Japan.

Finally, I wish to urge all the Nepalese people residing in Japan and all the Japanese friends and well-wishers to support and cooperate with the noble objective of the Government of Nepal in creating a developed, prosperous, inclusive and modern Nepal, a “New Nepal”.
