Effective cash optimization is critical to all organizations, especially in a tough economy. Cash is the lifeblood of organizations. An organization having a proper set of liquidity management policies and procedures will improve profits, reduce the risk of corporate failure and significantly improve its chances of survival. It also provides a strategic advantage, especially in difficult economic times. Effective liquidity management will enable an organization to derive maximum benefits at minimal cost. It will result in improved cash flow, enhanced profitability, and reduced reliance in short term borrowings. 
Nepalese Banking sector has experienced significant liquidity pressure in these days commencing from mid of last fiscal year. Largely due to the financing anomalies in real estate sector along with many other macro economic reasons, banks suffered liquidity crunch and could not place themselves in comfortable position for lending money. Almost all commercial banks are in the state of wait and see and, have virtually stopped fresh lending in retail and corporate sector. Lending rate of banks has significantly increased; inter-bank lending rate also increased due the liquidity shortage in the banking system. They are managing liquidity position to accommodate the  unbalanced cost structure of the Bank and fulfilling short term liquidity needs.
In this connection, manpower involved in assessing liquidity needs of the Bank and managing overall liquidity position need to reassure themselves with the increased knowledge and capabilities about various aspects of liquidity management in the ever changing banking environment. Such knowledge and skills will also support in developing fund management policy of the Bank for short and long term. In this connection, MAN and BCI have planned to conduct two-day long 'Liquidity Management Workshop' on 26 & 27 July, 2012 jointly. The program is targeted to the Managers working in the area of treasury and fund management at commercial banks.
The two-day workshop aims to make the participating managers aware about ongoing liquidity situation in Nepalese banking sector at large; impart skills and knowledge to identify determinants of liquidity in a commercial bank, assess liquidity needs, and manage liquidity position in short term and long term.
This training program outlines a set of sound practices for managing liquidity in banking organizations. The course endeavors to strengthen procedures for risk management in banks. BC Inc. believes that liquidity – the ability to fund increases in assets and meet obligations as they become due- is crucial to the ongoing viability of any banking organization. But the importance of liquidity transcends the individual bank since a liquidity shortfall at a single organization can have systematic repercussions. Management of liquidity is therefore among the most important activities conducted at banks.
Over time, there has been a declining ability to rely on core deposits. Recent technological and financial innovations have provided banks with new ways of funding their activities and managing their liquidity, but recent turmoil in global financial markets has poses new challenges for liquidity management. In light of these developments, the BC Inc. is conducting a training program on liquidity discussing- A framework for measuring and
managing liquidity- with updated benchmarked guidance. The training cum workshop is organized around a set of 14 principles falling in the following key areas:
