After consultation between China and Nepal, it is decided that the freight transport function of Zhangmu Port will be put into trial operation tomorrow (May 29, 2019). The two sides will hold a ceremony to restore the Friendship Bridge at the rebuilt Zhangmu Port to witness this important moment. Chairman of Tibet Border Trade Chamber, Chairman of Tibet Shengxin Industry and Trade Co., Ltd. Mr. Rabbahili and General Manager Mr. Dawa Chiren went to the port to attend the opening ceremony. Zhangmu Port, which has been interrupted for four years, will resume its freight transport function.
The well-known trademark of Tibet Shengxin Industry and Trade Co., Ltd. [Kanglando] washed wool has also finished loading goods today and will be exported to Nepal through customs.
According to scientific evaluation, the Zhangmu Port is only able to resume the function of freight transportation after customs clearance is restored. In order to ensure the safety of personnel, it is not necessary to carry out exchanges between ordinary personnel and border people.
With the help of the “one belt and one road” initiative, the resumption of the freight transport function at Zhangmu port will further speed up the construction of a “big channel” for South Asia. It will further promote exchanges and cooperation in the fields of economy, trade, culture and tourism, and achieve mutual benefit and win-win results. The friendship between China and Nepal will deepen further, and the economic and trade exchanges between China and Nepal will be further closer, and the living standards of the two peoples will continue. Raise!
The Sino-Nepalese Friendship Bridge was built on the Sino-Nepalese border river in 1964. Friendship Bridge is a reinforced concrete bridge across the East and west. It is about 8 meters wide and 45 meters long. It is the starting point of the west end of National Highway 318 in China. It is very important to enter the inland of China. In 2015, affected by Nepal’s “4.25” earthquake, Friendship Bridge was severely damaged and damaged to 4 sections, which prevented normal traffic.
The Friendship Bridge between China and Nepal is a bridge connecting the feelings of the two peoples. Rebuilding the Friendship Bridge is a necessary condition for the resumption of customs clearance at Zhangmu Port in Tibet. In order to implement the strategy of “one belt and one road”, comprehensively open wider to the outside world, improve people’s travel conditions, promote the economic development of the disaster areas, and promote the restoration of Sino Nigerian trade, the restoration project of the friendship bridge at Zhangmu port was included in the 4 / 25 reconstruction project in 2018. In September 2018, the Friendship Bridge between China and Nepal began to be restored and rebuilt. The duration of this project is 8 months. Up to now, the main project of Sino-Nepalese Friendship Bridge has been completed, and the constructors are carrying out deck work. It is expected that the bridge will be opened to traffic by the end of May.
