LHASA, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Burang, an important port for trade with Nepal, has resumed two-way cargo passing since Wednesday, the commerce department of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region said.

Affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, customs clearance at Burang port was temporarily suspended. One-way exports to Nepal resumed in December, and more than 1,600 tonnes of cement, steel bars, and other goods have been exported to Nepal since.

The resumption of two-way cargo passing at the port will further deepen economic and trade exchanges between China and Nepal, an official with the department said.
