Nepal to bridge China and South Asia closely

During his recent visit to Nepal, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had remarked that Nepal’s healthy relationship with India can be a bridge between China and India, and rest of the South Asian region.

 “Given the unique geographic location of Nepal between China and India, it cannot be denied that Nepal can act as the bridge between two emerging economic giants,” Lal Krishna KC, the Chairman of Full Bright Consultancy (Pvt.) Ltd., opined during an exclusive interview with APD.

According to the principal consultant of the company, Nepal’s development is crucial for these two countries to come closer. Nepal is laying grounds to create an investment-friendly environment. After restoration of peace, Nepal eagerly awaits promulgation of people’s constitution to pave way for a more stable government, which can give headway to Nepal’s limping development process. 

 “Nepal can benefit from bilateral trade between China and India if an express way is constructed via Nepal to link the economic powerhouses, which reduces the usual trade route to and from mainland China and Indian business hubs like Patna, Kolkatta, Lucknow and Mumbai,”Lal KC shared.

Likewise, installation of cross-border high-voltage transmission lines can boost Nepal’s economy after the completion of various under construction hydropower projects. This way, India can also benefit from China’s powerhouses in meeting its critical electricity demands.

Arniko Highway is the only relatively good overland route to China from Nepal. The businessman told APD that if Nepal can remove this bottleneck by constructing other overland routes, trade between China and Nepal will surge attracting both Chinese and Indian investors in Nepal. Such trilateral exchange can bring China and South Asia closer and aid to revitalization of the whole region.
