Finance Minister Janardan Sharma has argued that the country’s economy would not go to tailspin as that of Sri Lanka.

Some factors like country’s strong internal economy, strengthened production and revenue system and low pressure of debts would prevent the country from turning into the dire state of Sri Lanka, he reasoned at an event organised by Nepal Rastra Bank here Friday. “Thanks to those who are concerned over the country’s economic problems. Such concerns make the authorities cautious. But anyone's ill dream of dire state of national economy will not be materialized” he reiterated.

He ruled out the comparison between the two countries given their different kind of economy because there are differences in the structures of our production and foreign loans. “Despite this, a section of people has been trying to create havoc. We all together should foil their attempts.”

Finance Minister Sharma however blamed the failure to stop capital flights taking place through cryptocurrencies and hyper funds for creating stress on the country’s economy. “We should not fear technological developments. But we should focus on right steps taken so as to ensure their right use,” he argued.

For resolving problems country’s economy is facing, he stressed the need for all sectors to come together for it. Utilisation of country’s resources in maximum, creating job opportunities in infrastructure construction and production activities within the country and export increase are some of the factors supporting country’s economy, he said.
