Buddhist Philosophy Promotion and Monastery Development Committee would like to establish contact and strengthen exchanges with Chinese Buddhist organizations, learn the experience of monasteries management from China, and further expand Nepal-China relations through Buddhist exchanges.

Yang says that China-Nepal Buddhist exchanges has a long history. Fa Xian, Hsuan Tsang and other Chinese master monks have been to Nepal and promoted the Buddhist culture exchange between the two countries. In recent years, more and more Chinese tourists have visited Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. Chinese Buddhist Association also built its first overseas monastery in Lumbini-Chinese Monastery.
