23 January 2018
Mr. Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Government of India, noted that the project to build a 1,400 kilometer-long India-Myanmar-Thailand Trilateral Highway is being given the highest priority by the Government. He added that the highway connecting India to Southeast Asia may be ready by December 2019.
The Government of India has 24 ongoing projects to build connectivity with Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is one of the institutions supporting India’s Ministry of Road, Transport, and Highways in implementing these projects.
