The Foreign Affairs Focal Person of Pokhara Metropolitan Office, Laxman Timilsina said, as the procedure for a tie-up, the discussions with stakeholders are going on.    

The Sister Relationship between the Pokhara City of Nepal and the Upper Hutt City of New Zealand will promote the exchange and cooperation in areas of the economy, trade, tourism, and culture which will be fruitful to utilize the financial resources available in both cities for mutual benefit.
