Rasuwagadhi, March 13
The quantity of Chinese goods imported through the Rasuwagadhi border point in Rasuwa is going to increase soon.
An agreement was reached to increase the volume of Chinese goods imported into Nepal from the trade point during ‘virtual’ talks between the border officials of Rasuwa and the Jilung province in Kerung, according to the District Administration Office.
Efforts made by Rasuwa Chief District Officer Nawaraj Jaisi to meet the demand of the Nepali market to increase imports, which has been reduced since the Covid pandemic. Jaisi says the meeting has been fruitful.
He says it has been agreed to bring 14 containers to Rasuwagadhi daily, increasing it from the existing nine, starting later this month.
Entrepreneurs have said that 28 Nepali containers are expected to get mobilised after 14 large Chinese containers start arriving at the border point daily.
