Southasia - - BRIEFS -

The gov­ern­ments of Nepal and China have signed var­i­ous agree­ments for tech­nol­ogy, trans­porta­tion and in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment. China is build­ing a rail­way line that will con­nect the western re­gion of Ti­bet with Nepal. The rail­way link will con­nect Kath­mandu with Shi­gatse, a Ti­betan city. China is cur­rently work­ing with Nepal to build a "cross-Hi­malayan con­nec­tiv­ity net­work" through avi­a­tion, trad­ing ports, high­ways and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions. To meet the coun­try’s in­creas­ing en­ergy needs, Nepal has signed multi-bil­lion deals with Chi­nese firms to build hy­dropower plants in Nepal’s western re­gion.
