Kathmandu: Around 80 percent of the reconstruction works carried out under China aid have been successfully completed in Nepal, authorities said on Thursday.

As Nepal is marking the fourth anniversary of the devastating earthquake that claimed 8,790 lives and injured 22,300 people, causing huge financial losses, on Thursday, Nepal expressed appreciation over the speedy and efficient pace of the Chinese projects.

“There are 25 reconstruction projects under China aid including roads, schools, hospitals and heritage sites, among others. Majority of them are either completed or under construction process, their performance is really good,” the National Reconstruction Authority’s (NRA) Chief Executive Officer Sushil Gyawali told Xinhua news agency. The quake on April 25, 2015, had destroyed about a million private houses along with hundreds of health institutions, government buildings, cultural heritage sites, schools, roads and other various infrastructure.
