China has included building of an important “passageway” connecting Tibet with South Asia in the 14th Five Year plan which is due to commence from this year, the official media reported on Friday.
China will support Tibet in building the passageway to South Asia, state-run Xinhua news agency reported, quoting the 14th Plan document which was submitted to the National People’s Congress, (NPC), China’s Parliament.
Last year, state-run China Daily here reported that preparatory work is underway for a cross-border railway connecting Tibet and Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu.
Meanwhile, work will start on the China-Nepal Friendship Industrial Park in Jhapa, eastern Nepal, early next year. The park is the first of its kind launched with Chinese investment, reported Hindustan Times
These two projects form part of the Trans-Himalayan Multi-Dimensional Connectivity Network, the report said.
