Nepal-China-India trilateral meeting held
The “Nepal-China-India Trilateral Meeting” held on Thursday agreed on some projects to be initiated at the earliest to give immediate impetus to the concept of China-India-Nepal trilateral cooperation.
This agreement has come at a time when such projects were identified, among others, as being related to travel and tourism.
The Trilateral Meeting chaired by Himalaya Shamsher Rana, founder and first governor of Nepal Rastra Bank and formerly chairman of Himalayan Bank Ltd. in capital on January 30, also discussed on the possibilities for cooperation in energy projects.
One of the energy projects centered on the idea of a trans-country power trade agreement in which electricity could be traded freely between Nepal, China and India and through a regional grid connected to the three countries.
Similarly, the meeting also agreed on the rationale for trilateral cooperation centers around the idea that Nepal can play a very important catalytic role in bringing India and China into a collaborative relationship within the bounds of a trilateral framework and thereby among other things, promote and facilitate a discourse of cooperation between two of the fastest growing economies of the world.
The meeting was hosted by Nepal Institute of International and Strategic Studies. Nepalnews.com
