The ADB has said it is committed to fund the new highway that will significantly improve connectivity between the two countries. The proposed road will link Indian border cities with Myanmar’s central region  in an aim to increase bilateral trade and exchange of services, as well as to bring more Indian visitors  to the country.

The proposed network will link the Indian towns of Agartala, Silchar, Imphal and Moreh with Myanmar. ADB officials recently visited official of the district of Manipur in India to do a technical survey with the Indian road ministry.

The highway will run on four lanes and will soon see a bus service launched from Manipur to Mandalay in Myanmar that is expected to kick off the movement of goods and services across the borders of the two countries.

Further road projects are planned in the border region in joint projects with the ADB and the World Bank.
