After a decade-long armed conflict, Nepal is making the transition that is both peaceful and prosperous. The promulgation of the new constitution is a great step forward, and as Nepal undertakes major changes to its governance system and state structures, Nepali people often express their dissatisfaction peacefully and other times through violence. The quality of political leadership is crucial in addressing people’s concerns and needs and government work must be transparent and accountable.

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.
