The Dean of the Academy, Prof. Dr. Bal Chandra Luitel, gave a brief lecture about KU.

During the presentations, the floor was offered with questions and answers on a variety of academic themes and cross-cutting issues. In his final remarks, Prof. Dr. Bhola Thapa reviewed Kathmandu University’s founding concept and praised the World Bank’s support.
