The land port Burang in Southwest China's Xizang (Tibet) Autonomous Region has restored the imports of goods from Nepal since March 1, meaning the two-way trade between China and Nepal has been fully resumed, said Xizang border management authority.

The Burang port is located in Ngari Prefecture's Burang County, one of the 12 three-country border counties in China neighboring both Nepal and India with a borderline of more than 410 kilometers.

The Burang port restored the exports of goods to Nepal from December 26 in 2022 and has exported goods worth about 6.5 million yuan (roughly $0.9 million), including cement, steel, shoes, quilts and washing machines. China mainly imported card mats, handicrafts and bamboo products from Nepal.

Xizang border management authority said it will resume people-to-people exchanges through the Burang port as soon as possible after full assessment of the port's operation.

China-Nepal's biggest land port Gyirong, which accounted for more than 60 percent of China-Nepal trade in Gyirong County of Xigaze City in Xizang, resumed two-way trade in December 28 in 2022.
