China and India opened the 4,300-metre high Nathu La Pass 44 years after a border conflict led to its closure. Historically the leading trade route between the two countries, the Pass will for now provide duty-free passage for 29 kinds of Indian commodities and 15 types of Chinese goods from 1 June to 30 September each year. Border trade between China and India could rise from $100 million now to $3 billion by 2015 through Nathu La alone.
