In the program, Master Chef Santosh Shah said that he has recently found the attraction of Nepali students in Australia.

He said that not only in Australia but also in other countries, there has been a wave of studies in the field of hospitality in recent times.
He said that there is a lot of potential for SAFE studies in recent times, ‘looking at the past 10/15 years that I have been working, the demand for SAFE in the hospitality sector is high, so there are many opportunities in it.’
He emphasized on the need to study the hospitality sector in Australia and make good use of it in Nepal. He said, ‘Nepal was an agricultural country in the past. Now it is gradually becoming a tourism base country. In this situation, there are many possibilities in the hospitality sector.’
Master Chef Shah studied at Churchhill Institute and said that he wants to see master chefs like him and better than him produced in the future. He said, ‘I believe that by studying at Churchhill Institute, I will see a master chef like me and better than me in the future.’
In the program, Parliamentarian of the House of Representatives, Pradeep Paudel, said that he should be ready to go to any country in order to improve his education and skills. He said, ‘There is something to gain knowledge. In the world of globalization, people have to go where it is convenient to compete with the world. I believe that no nationality should interfere in this.’
He said that even if skills are developed abroad, institutes should encourage them to return to Nepal. ‘We can learn a lot from Australia’s agriculture, technology, government or governance system,’ he said.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Dean Associate Professor Michael Simer of Churchhill Institute said that if the environment for working in Nepal is created after the students study in Australia, then Nepal can not ‘brain drain’ but ‘brain gain’.
