Recently Nepal’s Prime Minister K..Sharma Oli and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang signed a Memorandum Of Understanding  between both the countries for promotion of friendship & co-operation in development of  Nepal’s Ports, Roads,Railways Aviation and Communication network in the mountainous region .

The above agreement would benefit both of these  countries as technical know how  & economic trade  would ensure fast growth of Nepal which would  see an increase of foreign tourists in large numbers due to  rapid development  of infrastructure by Chinese in   this mountainous region   hence the figures of tourists visiting our country will gradually show a downward trend.

I feel it is the right time for India to  follow up the same policy just like China by extending their co-operation and friendship  for the development  of infrastructure in Nepal be it Civil Ports, Railways ,Waterways or Airports. Nepal’s Premier may also   respond, as in the near future both of the countries could reap the benefits of dealing in Imports and Exports of essential goods on a large scale by sending these commodities  by Railways  routes only.

China can enter into tripartite agreements of trade thus  all of the three countries , China, Nepal and India could be benefited as more and more tourists would visit using Railway route . Medical Tourism in all the three countries  would also get a further impetus.

It could be possible to send   luxury tourists trains, semi luxury trains   directly from India to Moscow passing  through Nepal & Beijing , on seeing a  good response from the tourists  this rail route   could further be extended and given connectivity with the longest rail route of the world, The Trans Siberian Railway which  would make it  possible for the tourists to reach   Moscow in   Russia as, well as other European countries of the world from our country.

Development of Ports, Airstrips, and heavy Industries in other countries is of utmost importance in Indian interests.

India could wait and watch for the recent developments and reactions.
