Following a decade-long insurgency that ended in 2006 and earthquakes that killed more than 9,000 people and destroyed more than 755,000 homes in 2015, Nepal continues to face development challenges.

America has stood with Nepal for 65 years and we continue to stand with Nepal as it regains its strength—with stronger homes, healthier families, abundant agricultural yields, and a more inclusive government. As we put the past year behind us, please take a moment to reflect on how far we have come, be mindful of the times when light shone through the dark, and know that in the coming years, the United States will journey onward with Nepal toward our shared vision – a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Nepal.
