Nepali and Chinese officials have agreed to control unlawful activities and heighten security at the Rasuwagadhi-Kerung border point.
Rasuwagadhi is the second border point opened for trade between the countries after Tatopani—the first and largest border point. The Tatopani crossing has been closed since the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015 caused extensive damage to the infrastructure in the region.
During a recent meeting in Syaphrubesi, Nepali authorities discussed about the problems faced by the traders while crossing the border point. Chief District Officer (CDO) Krishna Prasad Adhikari said Chinese officials had agreed to ease imports from the border point.
Seventeen Chinese officials led by Lhasa police, and CDO, custom officials representated the Nepali side at the meeting.
The Chinese officials stressed the need to bolster security system at the border point, while the Nepali authorities drew attention of their Chinese counterparts towards hassles faced by Nepali traders while importing goods through the border point.
They also apprised the Chinese officials about restriction on entry permits. China does not issue one-day entry permits to people from outside Rasuwa to take delivery of imported goods.
