Nepal Matters for America is a Washington DC-based initiative – the premier Nepal policy think tank that specifically deals with the US-Nepal relations in Washington. Nepal Matters for America was created out of an understanding with Nepal Congressional Caucus in the Capitol Hill, Washington DC — with the co-chair of the Caucus former Congressman Jared Polis who is now the Governor of Colorado. It’s objective is to increase Nepal’s visibility in the policy community in Washington DC and to independently provide research and commentary nationally and internationally on the strategic and economic aspects of the US-Nepal relations, as well as vision that will be in the interests of both Americans and Nepalis. NMA is also proud to have warm relationship with friends at the State Department and Nepal Embassy in Washington, major foreign policy think tanks, and media in the US and in Nepal as well as elsewhere.
