UK’s The Banker magazine honours Mahat
Jan 5, 2016-
Former finance minister Ram Sharan Mahat has been honoured with “Global and Asia-Pacific Finance Minister of the Year” awards by The Banker magazine of the UK.
The magazine awarded Mahat “for his exemplary work in the aftermath of two disastrous earthquakes that hit Nepal in 2015 and in pushing for reforms to improve governance” in Nepal’s Ministry of Finance.
Mahat was the first Nepali government official to interact with the international community after the earthquakes, said the magazine, which is owned by the Financial Times group and edited in London.
After the devastating earthquake on April 25 last year, the then finance minister Mahat had played an important role in making positive amendments in the existing banking laws and in providing loans to youth at concessional rates.
