The mission of CSC-Nepal--the premier China-focused organization in the country--is to promote imaginatively knowledge-based, multi-dimensional policy dialogue and study activities on China, and more specifically between China and Nepal. It aims at the study of China in general and Nepal-China relations at the policy and academic level in particular. Basically its work is academically and professionally oriented with the rigor and sophistication of public or cultural diplomacy. It serves as a common forum for all intellectuals--irrespective of color, creed, religion, ethnicity, gender and location--who abide by the provisions of the CSC-Nepal constitution, are concerned with and interested in China, value China-Nepal relations and the integration of Nepal with Chinese modernization and reform processes that have transcended various regions of Asia.
