Members of the Brigade of Gurkhas and Gurkha Veterans were invited to attend an event to celebrate National day of Nepal at the Nepal Embassy in London along with various dignitaries and UK based friends of Nepal.
The event took place in the grounds of the Embassy in central London by invite of the Ambassador His Excellency Dr.Durga Bahadur Subedi on 20th September 2019.
The Ambassador thanked the guests for accepting his invitation to celebrate the National Day in London. He then went on to highlight the respect Nepal and the United Kingdom had for each other and the working relationships established over the last 200 years. He stated that the Nepalese and British People had a common belief in peace and cooperation across states.
He then talked about the importance the Nepalese Government was placing on common ground in world relations. He also talked the progressive approach to an established democracy that Nepal was taking and the Nepal Government initiative for 2020 of Visit Nepal, a drive to encourage more people to visit Nepal and increase the tourism trade across the country. We will be supporting this initiative through informing our audiences across our digital channel
The 200+ guests were then entertained with cultural dances from local Nepalese children, Gurkhas from the Queen’s Gurkha Engineers and the Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas. A fantastic Nepalese curry buffet was also served to the guests. We wish Nepal well for the coming year and the future beyond.
