(3)Hydropower (Plant) Projects in Nepal and other neighboring countries
Nepal is rich in hydropower resources and shows great potential for development. In response to the B&R Initiative, YNIC actively explored the Nepalese power market. It initially targeted at two hydropower projects while seeking investment and development opportunities for other projects. In addition, YNIC intensified efforts for overseas market development and vigorously searched for greenfield investment opportunities in countries along the Belt and Road.
