National Planning Commission (NPC) Vice-Chairperson Dr Biswonath Poudel said the NPC would actively engage towards coronavirus control and economic revitalization.

Assuming his office today after taking an oath of office from Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, newly-appointed vice-chair Dr Poudel said the NPC would lay emphasis on addressing the impact of natural disasters.

He further said that he would focus on inter-ministerial coordination and effective implementation of plans to enhance the performance of the NPC.

Earlier, at a programme organized here today at Singha Durbar, Prime Minster Deuba administered an oath of office and secrecy to Poudel.
