NE region gateway to east, SE Asia: Foreign Secretary Shringla

Agartala/Gangtok, Sep 16 As the northeast region is India's gateway to east and southeast Asia, the country has a vision for this region that is captured in the 3 Cs - Connectivity, Commerce, and Cultural Commonalities, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said.

He said that in foreign policy terms, the states of the northeast are the link between two fundamental pillars of our foreign policy: "Neighbourhood First" and "Act East". "In partnership with our neighbours and friends to the east, we are working to improve the infrastructure and connectivity in our northeastern states while also facilitating greater regional integration," Shringla said recently while addressing a seminar on a virtual platform.

He said that the connectivity between India and Bangladesh directly and positively impacts both the northeast region and Bangladesh. Four of the six pre-1965 rail links between the two countries have been made operational, and work is underway on the remaining two.

"Nationals of the two countries can not only travel on board the Maitree and Bandhan express to each other's countries but on buses plying between Shillong and Dhaka and between Agartala and Kolkata via Dhaka. We are upgrading the infrastructure of Land Customs Stations
