The Lizi Port, a new trade channel between China and South Asia, was officially opened and put into operation on the 13th. This is the fourth land port in Xizang to be officially cleared after Zhangmu, Jilong and Pulan. This marks a more convenient and efficient trade exchange between China and South Asia.

Lizi Port is located in Yare Township, Zhongba County, Shigatse City, Xizang Autonomous Region. It is the highest port in Xizang, adjacent to Nepal, and has long been a salt and grain trading point between the two countries in history. In 2017, the Lizi Port was included in the national port opening plan and was approved by the State Council for opening up in 2019. Since the launch of the port construction, the port has invested a total of 400 million yuan and built 23 projects, including a national gate inspection building, an entry goods inspection site, a customs emergency support center, and a border inspection emergency and information command center. On September 19, 2023, the Lizi Port successfully passed the national acceptance inspection. Keywords: the Belt and Road news, the Belt and Road project, overseas project.

Wang Fanghong, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Shigatse Municipal Committee and Mayor of Shigatse, said that the opening of the ports has further improved the layout of Xizang's ports and helped build a pattern of all-round opening up. At the same time, it is of great practical significance to build an open channel to South Asia and a Himalayan economic cooperation belt, and promote the high-quality joint construction of the the Belt and Road between China and Nepal.
