Does the Government of Nepal provide viability gap funding in case of investment proposed in priority sectors?

Yes. The provision of viability gap funding (VGF) has been introduced in the PPPIA 2019. A decision on such a fund shall be taken by a committee set up at the Ministry of Finance on the recommendation of the investment approving agency. Such funds are available for construction, operation and expansion of the projects that yield positive returns in the long run and are important infrastructure projects, which seem not to be able to run in profit immediately.
