28 mln-dollar contracts signed at China-Nepal fair

Chinese and Nepalese businessmen have signed contracts worth 28 million U.S. dollars at a trade fair that ended Monday in the Tibet Autonomous Region, up 76 percent from 2009, according to Xinhua.

The 16 contracts signed at the 14th China's Tibet-Nepal Economic and Trade Fair involve textiles, mechanical and electrical products, and agricultural and animal products, the regional commerce department said.

The Nepalese business people mainly import wool, cashmere, handicrafts and farm produce from Tibet, the department said.

Rabindra Kumwar, a Nepalese businessman, said it was his first time to attend the fair.

"I want to know more about the Chinese market through the fair," Kumwar said. "When I am back to Nepal, I will trade bronze and wooden sculptures that Chinese consumers are fond of."

The trade fair, which started Thursday in Shigatze, has been organized alternately in China and Nepal every two years.
