The Himalayan Times Reveals Miyamoto’s Purpose in Nepal

Eight months after the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal, Dr. Kit Miyamoto sits down with the Himalayan Times to discuss what the future holds for reconstruction in Nepal – what works and what doesn’t.


“I think engineers here have a really fantastic foundation, but have never experienced such a disaster ever.”

“Where we come from, we go through disaster and reconstruction all the time so we have learned what works and what does not. That kind of experience can really help Nepal and that’s why we established Miyamoto International Nepal, which is a local company now. We are staffed by Nepali engineers we have trained for the last six months and are now among the best engineers globally.”
