Addressing the meeting, President Rana highlighted that Nepal, being a partner in the Belt and Road Initiative and a member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, is looking forward to opening up of new opportunities through this initiative, not only to boost the bilateral trade and investment through increased connectivity between China and South Asia, but also to develop many sectors of Nepal, and address the infrastructure gap that Nepal is facing.
