Railway service review LoE inked

Kathmandu, December 17:

Nepal and India today signed a Letter of Exchange (LoE) to review their railway service agreement.

Purushottam Ojha, secretary at the Ministry of Commerce and Supplies, and India’s envoy to Nepal Rakesh Sood signed on behalf of their respective countries.

“Flat and tank wagons can be operated in Birgunj dry port,” said officials after the signing ceremony. Birgunj dryport will be linked to all major Indian cities to facilitate the export and import of industrial raw materials, food grains, petroleum products, steel, iron, and other materials. It will also be cost effective, said the ministry.

Along with the implementation of this agreement, third country export and import will also get support with Break Bulk Cargo system.
