On 6 February 2023, Policy Research Institute facilitated an interactive discussion between the team constituted to initiate the process of developing a strategic plan for the OPMCM and the institutions under it.

Also present was Dr Som Lal Subedi, former Chief Secretary of the Government of Nepal, who advises the team on the strategy development process.

The interaction aimed to collect relevant ideas and information from the institutions under the OPMCM. The information was sought vis-à-vis (a) what support and facilitation each of the institutions was getting from the OPMCM; (b) whether the support was in keeping with their needs and expectations; and (c) what the OPMCM should do to enhance the performance of these institutions.
