A 'Nepal Evening' was organized by the country's delegation at Messe Berlin Hall. Prominent international buyers of Nepali carpets were present for business interaction. Nepali Ambassador to Germany, Dr Madan K. Bhattarai, guaranteed full support to international carpets importers from Nepal's legation to Germany.
