BRIEF SPEAKS...
Dear friends,

Invisible territorial lines may separate countries yet invisible threads often bind them together, forging strong neighbourly ties. The Motor Vehicles Agreement, inked by Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and Nepal, treads on such cooperative lines and blurs border restrictions by facilitating free vehicular movement between the neighbours.

Such cooperative inroads will draw a surge in trade and investment to the sub-region, yet numerous roadblocks impede the implementation of the agreement. It is imperative for all stakeholders to collectively identify and authorise routes, immigration checkpoints, land customs stations and drivers, and upgrade infrastructure, at the earliest.

BRIEF is currently hoping to facilitate trade through a study to identify policy reforms and infrastructural improvements at Indian ports that would further facilitate trade and transit; yet there is much to be done to realise a borderless South Asia. Hoping the prospects of this transport pact will warm other South Asian nations to opening their borders as well, we bring to you the next edition of 'South Asia Watch', featuring a glimpse of the stakeholders’ consultation BRIEF organised on Bridging Infrastructural Deficits at Select Trade Ports in India.
