Nepal has got a huge opportunity to increase exports of Nepali pashmina to China. Nepal through Belt and Road International Trade and Investment Platform in China which was formed with a joint initiative of chambers of commerce and associations from countries and regions along the Belt and Road routes, a mutual exchange platform of global purchasers and suppliers, will promote its pashmina products.
A local chapter of the platform, launched in November, said a team of the international platform had come to Nepal recently to take part in the Nepal Investment Summit on March 2-3.
Bhaskar Raj Rajkarnikar, chairman of the local chapter, said that an understanding has been reached between the two sides on selling Nepali pashmina in China, one of the largest markets in the world through the platform.
According to Shanker Prasad Pandeya, president of Nepal Pashmina Industries Association, the platform will market Nepali pashmina in China after entrepreneurs provide information about the products. He said that an agreement has not been signed on the matter, but understanding has been reached.
