  • ‘Nepal, China working on cross-border rail, dry port’

    KATHMANDU-Nepal and China are working on several key areas including cross-border railway connectivity, highways and construction of a dry port, China’s envoy in Kathmandu Yu Hong said on Saturday. Hong’s statement comes within days of Nepal cancelling a $2.5 billion hydropower project that was to be built by a Chinese state-owned firm.

    “China has taken the request of the Nepal government for constructing cross-border railway line seriously,” Hong said, adding a team has already begun preliminary feasibility study for the project.

    Similarly, the expansion of Rasuwagadhi-Syafrubeshi road link, resumption of Araniko Highway and construction of dry ports in Tatopani, Rasuwa and Yaritoo are also on Beijing’s priority list,the Chinese envoy pointed outduring a press meet organised on the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China and Sino-Nepal relations by the Embassy of China in Kathmandu.
    “Nepal could benefit from China’s prosperity in various sectors including trade, investment and connectivity as Kathmandu has already joined the China-proposed One Belt and One Road (OBOR) initiative,” she said.
