As yet, there is no bilateral economic cooperation between Nepal and Venezuela, and the trade is also minimal. The trade figure between Nepal and Venezuela shows that Nepal’s export remained almost nil against an import of Rs. 11.8 million in 2018. There was no bilateral trade in the year 2019, according to TECP. Exchange in tourism and investment sectors, however, remained too small to appear in official statistics.
