Nepal and China's growing border trade

For many years, border trade between China and Nepal was restricted by political and security issues, but now this is changing - with cross-border trade growing significantly.

Nepal has emerged as a leading trading partner of China's Tibetan autonomous region.

The two countries are connected by a friendship bridge, used by hundreds of Nepalese and Chinese to cross the border every day. The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan has been to the border.
