Prabhu for rail connectivity with neighbouring nations

Thursday, March 16, 2017

New Delhi: Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu today pitched for rail connectivity with neighbouring countries to boost trade and eliminate poverty in the region.

Highlighting the need for physical connectivity with neighbours for trade growth, he advocated work on rail link from Kathmandu to Delhi and Kolkata shortly.

"Asia is going to be the next futre growth centre of the world. Asia being the large continent, it is going to be very interesting to see how all countries of the region participate in the growth," Prabhu said while inaugurating the global conference on transcontinental rail connectivity here in Delhi.

The conference aims at taking forward the proposed railway transport connectivity in both South and South-West Asia.

Considered to be a major boost for trade and economic development of the Asia Pacific region, a trans-container goods train from Dhaka to Istanbul covering Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey is being considered by Indian Railways along with neighbouring countries.
