Aug 14, 2019

PM Narendra Modi’s trip to Bhutan on August 17-18 and Bangladesh PM’s trip to Delhi early October could smoothen hurdles over BBIN regional connectivity including Motor Vehicles Agreement (MVA). 
Regional connectivity initiatives will figure high on the agenda of these visits for effective sub-regional cooperation that feeds into Indo-Pacific construct. 
While the Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal (BBIN) Motor Vehicles Agreement can yield long term benefits but for its effective implementation many short-term challenges are to be addressed to arrive at a mutual win-win situation for all the stakeholders and countries involved, said Bipul Chatterjee, Executive Director, CUTS International, a leading Indian think tank that focuses on connectivity and trade facilitation issues.
