"Improved electricity supply and hardly any labour related obstructions contributed to better capacity utilization of industries last fiscal," Hari Neupane, managing director of Ambe Cement, a leading cement manufacturer in Nepal, told Xinhua on Sunday.
He said that industries are now getting uninterrupted power supply at around 18 hours a day which was a day dream until two years ago. Nepal suffered load shedding up to 18 hours a day a few years ago.
Pashmina, livestock feeds, beer, noodles, processed tea and cement are among the industries that witnessed highest capacity utilization last fiscal, according to the report. There has been strong rebound in capacity utilization of industries producing construction materials such as iron steel and cement.
