Nepal,   with   an   increasingly   advanced   level   of   consumption   aspirations   and   ever globalising    population,   offers   to   be   an   ideal   opportunity   for   the   Indian   brands   to   enter through    franchise   or   investment   routes.   

Considering   the   high   level   of   people   to   people   exchanges   between   the   two countries,    Indian   brands   enjoy   high   visibility   and   recall   in   Nepal   and,   therefore,   Nepal offers    to   be   an   ideal   market   for   them.
