    The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is trying to tie up Japanese funds for projects in the North-East that had difficulty in attracting private-sector investment in the past. The ministry will seek assistance from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Japan’s official financial assistance arm, for the projects.

    The projects include highway stretches in states such as Mizoram, Nagaland, Assam and Meghalaya – in some cases they lie close to the Myanmar and Bangladesh border – as well as bridge projects over the Brahmaputra in Assam. At present, the JICA is conducting a study in consultation with the highways ministry to identify specific cooperation areas on developing connectivity, including highways in the North-East.
