Building a Collaborative Atmosphere
Competition doesn’t always necessarily mean you’ve to take each other out. At a time like this when businesses are struggling to cope with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic; collaboration and support from each other is essential. This movement alone has helped create much brand awareness and opened doors for collaboration among brands in Nepal. It has also shown the spirit of the brands to involve in a collaborative atmosphere and prosper together which is delightful to see.
