``Economic Freedom with Good Governance``


Pokhara Research Center

is a research based, non- partisan organization which focuses on socio-economic dimensions of domestic public policy research. The organization would use the international principle of individual choice and liberty translated into equal opportunity of enterprise, rule of law and the democratic principle of free expression as a tool to design its programs and initiatives. The functional domains of the center will be divided into three areas:


Research on governance (local, state and federal), economy and public policies issues


Training to various stakeholders like young leaders, scholars, community leaders, policy makers and citizenry


Advocacy to the citizenry, government officials and stakeholders for sound economic and public policies


Research on Pokhara’s local and the state’s economic policies and capacities, its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats which will help identify major economic issues affecting the electorate. Furthermore, research would also suggest reforms and best practices required to enhance the economy.
