Abstract

The paper assesses the proposed trilateral partnership between China, India and Nepal, and calculates whether such a partnership will bring about prosperity and development in Nepal. The paper begins by throwing light on the emergence of bridge discourse and gradually analyzes the trilateral partnership from three perspectives: geographical perspective, from the standpoint of Nepal’s asymmetric dependence on India, and from the viewpoints of China-led Belt and Road Initiatives (BRI).Concurrently, the paper also aims to discover whether Nepal has made any endeavors to materialize the project. The research concludes by stating that the proposed trilateral partnership is still an idea in making which seeks institutions and organizations to bear fruits of development and prosperity.
