    Nepal\'s struggle to strike balance between India, China

    04/17/2015

    By Deepak Adhikari

    KATHMANDU, Nepal

    Sandwiched between India and China, Nepal, in recent years, has found itself being serenaded by its neighbors, but analysts question whether the Himalayan nation, mired in political instability, can capitalize on the newfound courtship.

    Each funded by India and China, two hydroelectric projects in Nepal's Western region illustrate the growing competition between its neighbors to invest in developing the country's war-ravaged infrastructure.

    The Pancheshwar Multipurpose Project, a 6,000 megawatt hydroelectric project on the Mahakali River on Nepal's western border with India, which after languishing for 17 years due to political instability in Nepal, received a go-ahead after the official visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Nepal in August last year.

    A 750 megawatt hydropower project on the West Seti River in the same region had been stalled since China's Three Gorges Corporation signed a deal with Nepal in 2012. After the visit of Lu Chun, the chairman of the Chinese company, early this year, the $1.6 billion project is all set to begin its work this summer.
