The Ministry of Finance has issued a second call for applications for the vacant position of SEBON Chairman.
The government of Nepal has published yet another notice for the appointment of a chairman for the Nepalese Securities and Exchange Commission (SEBON). The Ministry of Finance has provided fresh information, which supersedes the previous information in its entirety. The Securities Body of Nepal has previously announced a vacancy for the position of chairman of the regulatory board, which had been previously announced.
