Kathmandu-Minister for Information and Communications Surendra Kumar Karki has stressed the need for making the service of Nepal Telecom qualitative and competitive.
Addressing a programme organised here today at the premises of the Telecom to announce the merger of the National Employees Organisation of Nepal and the National Employees Organisation of Nepal Telecom, he also emphasised the need for investing in development by increasing capacity of the Telecom.
"Telecom Nepal is a big institution that Nepal is proud of. There is a need to utilize frozen budget by further strengthening the Telecom and opening up its sister organisations. It does not have any competitor at present. It should make all bases to compete with other institutions of this kind (if any to open up)," he said.
Managing Director of the Nepal Telecom, Kaminiraj Bhandari, said that the Telecom has been active to enhance the quality of the Telecom.
