At a function organized at Hotel Radisson in Kathmandu, Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Dilendra Prasad Badu and President of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) Shekhar Golchha among others congratulated the team and extended their best wishes to the news portal.

The program was followed by a discussion on ‘Current Challenges of Nepali Economy and the Way Forward’ which was conducted in a collaboration with Prabhu Bank.

In a program organized to mark the first anniversary, publisher Anil Nyaupane said: “As Nepali society remains largely polarized and divided along with various types of political ideologies and affiliations, the need for impartial and independent journalism has become even starker. And we remain committed on this front as well.”

Nepal Live Today is committed to the principle of journalism. We are committed to upholding the values of journalism through quality journalism, said Bhagirath Yogi, Consulting Editor of Nepal Live Group. 

Democracy, freedom of the press, liberal economy and political and civil liberties are our uncompromising ethos, said Siromani Dhungana, Founding Editor of the portal. “Nepal Live Today does not compromise on fundamental democratic principles.” 

In the anniversary program, Nepal’s Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Dilendra Prasad Badu praised the way Nepal Live Today is doing journalism. “Nepal Live Today has emerged as a brand known for quality and ethical journalism,” he said. “Among hundreds of online portals, NLT stands out because of its unique presentation and trustworthy content.”

Shekhar Golchha, President of Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce & Industries (FNCCI), said that the portal has gained impressive trust in Nepal’s private sector due to its commitment to ethical journalism. “Nepal Live Today emerged as a trusted source of news and information because it has always valued basic principles of journalism including accuracy, balance and credibility.”

Representatives from Nepal’s civil society, development sector, private sector organizations and noted scholars extended their wishes on the occasion.
