KATHMANDU - Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal will attend the Boao Forum for Asia annual conference to be held in China's southern Hainan province, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Thursday.

The prime minister will leave for China on Thursday night and will address the inaugural session of the Boao forum on Saturday, according to a statement issued by the ministry.

"We are now working to implement bilateral agreements signed with the Chinese government when the then Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli visited China in March last year," Foreign Minister Prakash Sharan Mahat told Xinhua.

He said the Nepalese government wants to enhance transport connectivity under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative proposed by China.

The foreign minister and senior government officials will accompany Prime Minister Dahal during the visit.
