The 'Swadeshi Movement' is a national movement that has been working towards empowering domestic manufacturers and improving their standards of living. The movement aims to provide substantial growth in the national GDP and make the Nepalese economy more self sufficient. It would reduce our dependence on imported goods from foreign countries in order to fulfil our citizen's needs.
The core objectives of the movement are :
- To register 1000 industries with Department of Industries (DOI) annually
- To increase industrial share in GDP (as per Sustainable Development Goal 9) to 22% by 2025 & 25% by 2030
- To create 150,000 industrial jobs annually
- To achieve exports worth from USD 1.25 billion to USD 4.6 billion in 5 years
