China supporting reconstruction of Nepal one year after earthquake

April 25th is the first anniversary of the worst earthquake in Nepal’s history. Led by the prime minister, the nation is remembering the nearly 9,000 victims of the 7.8 magnitude quake.

A ceremony was held at the ruins of the historic Dharahara Tower in Kathmandu. For many, it’s been a lost year without much to see for the $4 billion in aid pledged by foreign donors. Tourism, which previously accounted for nine percent of the national economy, has not recovered.

China promised to give its full support to the reconstruction of Nepal after last year’s earthquakes.  CCTV’s Hou Yun looks at what progress has been made.
