The progress and prosperity of China in recent years is unprecedented, to which Nepal and the Nepalese extend great appreciation. Toghether with the great chunk of the developing world, Nepal also wants to learn from the miraculous achievement of China. In the same way China has engaged itself in activities and matters of international importance more frequently than ever before. The Olympics Games and Shanghai Expo are to name a few, where top leaders of Nepal participated. The Government and people of Nepal fully cooperated with China in these undertakings, including during the time of Olympics torch relay. We take these events as a matter of pride as a friendly neighbour and good friend.
Nepal-China relations entered a new epoch after the establishment of formal diplomatic relations in 1955. Our two countries have since witnessed sea changes in their domestic politics and economies. The scope and intensity of friendly exchanges and cooperation between our two two countries, however, have not been affected by these changes, but have expanded and strengthened every next day. Nepal and China enjoy comprehensive partnership of cooperation featuring everlasting friendship.
