    Assam Government to Reopen

    In an attempt to reconnect and accelerate trade relationship, the Assamese government has moved Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and NITI Aayog for reopening of the pre-partition railway links from Chittagong to Makum, Cox Bazar to Ledo and third line between Bangladesh via Golakganj till Moirabari.

    It is to be mentioned that an India-Bangladesh stakeholders meet will be held on October 22 and 23 in Guwahati, wherein, Assam industry minister Chandra Mohan Patwary will generate awareness and discuss opportunities in trading natural resources with neighboring countries through surface routes.

    In India’s attempt to connect with these markets, Assam and the Northeast has an advantageous position by virtue of its geographical location, and Assam is going all out to capitalise this opportunity.
