Description Embassy Of Nepal, London
The Embassy of Nepal is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 13:00 and 14:00 to 17:00. Nepal established diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom in 1816. Ever since, friendship, mutual understanding and respect for each other's national interests and aspirations have characterized relations between the two countries. The Treaty of Sugauli (1816) provided for the exchange of accredited Ministers to each other's court (Art.
VIII). This arrangement continued until 1923 when a new Treaty of Friendship between Nepal and Great Britain was signed and the status of British Representative in Kathmandu was upgraded to the level of an Envoy. In 1934 Nepal established a legation in London and the two countries exchanged Ministers Plenipotentiary and Envoys Extraordinary.
The status of these representatives was promoted in 1947 to the level of Ambassadors, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary.
The United Kingdom is among the top ten trading partners of Nepal. In 2009 Britain stood as the fifth largest destination for Nepal's exports and seventh largest in imports with a total volume of trade. Major Nepali exports to the United Kingdom are woolen carpets, handicrafts, ready-made garments, silverware and jewellery, leather goods, Nepali paper and paper products.
Nepal's major imports from the United Kingdom include copper scraps, hard drinks, cosmetics, medicine and medical equipment, textiles, copper wire rod, machinery and parts, aircraft and spare parts, scientific research equipment, office equipment and stationary.
While the trade has steadily risen between the two nations over the years, the balance of trade has alternatively been negative and positive until 2006 but in the recent past years the gap has been widened showing negative balance in Nepal's favour consecutively.
