Nepalese Intellectual reached to the final of Global Development Award 2007

The Deputy Director of Nepal Rastra Bank Dr. Nephil Matangi Maskay, has been selected for the Global Development Award 2007. Some of his article are:

"Nepal's experience for currency unification: an examination of exchange rate performance for the Nepalese vis-a-vis Indian currency with special reference to the period of 1956-1960".
There are three finalists for the award. Other two fianlist competitors are Raul Francisco Andrade Ciudad from Peru, and Rongxing Guo from China.
Selected researchers will now travel at GDN’s expense to Brisbane to present their final papers/ proposals to an internationally renowned selection committee.
What is the 2007 Global Development Awards and Medals Competition ?
Carrying prizes in cash and travel worth nearly $240,000, this is the largest international competition on development research. Since 2000, nearly 3,700 scholars representing over 100 countries have participated in this competition and nearly $2 million has been distributed in prizes and conference expenses to finalists and winners. This competition is unique in that it is open only to researchers from developing and transition countries. The Awards and Medals Competition is a competitive funding mechanism established by mutual cooperation between GDN and the Government of Japan. Finalists are invited at GDN’s expense to present proposals at the Ninth Annual Global Development Conference, Brisbane, January 2008.
To be selected for the final round of competition from Nepal is our achievement. We hope and wish all the best for Maskay. He will make us proud and spread the rays of hope, by winning the global award.
