Nepal-China agreements are stuck

After the 2015 Indian blockade, the Nepal government tried to diversify trade and access to the sea through China. But five years later, inertia and disinterest in Kathmandu have stalled a raft of bilateral agreements signed with the northern neighbour.

It has been exactly one year since President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Kathmandu, the first by a Chinese leader to Nepal in 23 years. But there has been no discernible movement on agreements to expedite projects under the Belt Road Initiative (BRI) and previous agreements.
 
In fact, the poor state of the Rasuwagadi-Kathmandu highway today is a glaring example of the inability of the Nepal government to get its act together to improve Nepal’s only functioning highway link to China.
