Roundtable Discussion on “Belt and Road Initiative: Nepal’s Perspective”

SAWTEE- Centre for Sustainable Development (SAWTEE-CSD), in an attempt to bring forth current national and international issues affecting Nepal’s socio-economic development, has initiated a Roundtable Discussion Series. The roundtable discussion brings together a wide section of experts and stakeholders to participate in the policy discourse.

Organized on 17 April, 2019, “Belt and Road Initiative: Nepal’s perspective” is second in the series of such discussions. Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a mega project put forward by the Chinese government has been championed as a vehicle for infrastructure development and connectivity across Asia, Africa and Europe. Nepal signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Chinese government in 2017, making her a party to the BRI. Against this backdrop the objective of this dialogue was to bring together relevant stakeholders to discuss the possible opportunities and challenges BRI may bring to Nepal.
