One company that helps such individuals to understand the importance of gold and other precious commodities is J. Rotbart & Co, which recently celebrated its third anniversary in Hong Kong. The company hosted a special reception for invited guests in March.

His brother Zvika Rotbart is responsible for business development, and a third brother, Jonathan Rotbart, is a fellow director.

Local media in Nepal reported recently that state-owned Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) is planning to fly to new destinations, including Israel. New aircraft have been ordered, and the country has despatched technical teams to many destinations to hold discussions.

For now, NAC’s top priority destination is Japan, followed by China and Saudi Arabia, according to NAC Executive Chairman Madan Kharel. “We will then focus on extending flights to Israel,” he said. NAC has sought permission to use Saudi Arabia’s airspace to fly to Israel. “If we get the permission, we will immediately start flying to Israel,” Kharel said.

NAC is also planning to fly to countries with a significant Buddhist population. This preparation is being made as the first phase of construction of Gautam Buddha International Airport is nearing completion. The new international airport is located near Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha. “Lots of tourists from Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Cambodia visit Lumbini,” said Kharel.

Currently, NAC is conducting international flights with two wide-body and two narrowbody Airbus aircraft and one Boeing 757 to eight international destinations: New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Doha and Dubai.
