A proposed extension of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway to the China-Nepal border would boost bilateral trade and tourism, experts said, as there is currently no rail line linking the two countries.

"If the proposal becomes reality, bilateral trade, especially in agricultural products, will get a strong boost, along with tourism and people-to people exchanges," said Wang Mengshu, a rail expert at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, on Wednesday.

He said that the project is being undertaken at Nepal's request and that China has begun preparatory work.
