Nepal is a landlocked country sandwiched between Indian and Chinese territory in the Himalayan region.
"Nepal and China may be getting close for mutual economic and trade gains but the emerging relationship between the two is not at all at the cost of India", Nilambar Acharya said while addressing a programme organized by the Indian trade and industry body PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry in New Delhi.
Nilambar Acharya invited Indian business houses to invest in hydro projects, tourism, construction of roads and highways and other similar ventures in Nepal.
Recently China has been investing heavily in infrastructure projects in Nepal. To combat China's moves, India has increased its aid to Nepal and has been focusing on efficient and timely implementation of its projects in the country.
