Nepal has requested the China government to once again open trading points on the Sino-Nepal border in wake of the problems occurring at the Indian border.
Looking at the continuous unrest that Nepal’s southern border with India is having along with New Delhi’s diplomatic standoff the country’s new constitution, Kathmandu is now thinking of doing business with China.
While India surrounds Nepal from three sides, China shares the north border. Since both Indian and Nepali nationals do not need visa to travel between the two countries, nearly 90 percent of trade activities was carried out from here.
However, now that the commodities were hit by disturbances at the major customer points at the south border, the Nepal government is seeking assistance from Beijing to reopen trade routes.
