Regional: Subregional Transport Facilitation Project
This technical assistance aimed to improve subregional transport network and border facilities to reduce transport costs and customs processing delays. It also helped the Government prepare a project to strengthen road connectivity, promote domestic and international trade, and improve capacity building. These lowered import-export costs among Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, and other countries.
