"We have already started informal talks with the Chinese company on signing of the PIA," said a highly-placed source at the Investment Board Nepal (IBN). "The formal negotiations on PIA will begin after the Chinese investor pays a pre-negotiation and agreement execution fee of 0.2 per cent of the project cost."

The new factory wil be run by Huaxin Cement Nepal Pvt Ltd. No further information on the capacity of the cement plant has yet been given.
