    Strengthening connectivity with Southeast Asian countries, the government is set to start the construction work on Meghalaya to Myanmar highway as part of the India-Myanmar-Thailand trilateral pact, shortly at an investment of Rs.5,000 crore, Transport Minister, Nitin Gadkari said in a recent media statement, adding that India, Thailand, and Myanmar are working on a 1,400 km long highway that would link the country with Southeast Asia by land for the first time in decades. The project would boost trade, business, health, education and tourism amongst these countries. In addition, the government is also planning a waterway connectivity in Myanmar via Bangladesh using Brahmaputra river and the project is slated for completion shortly. For the project in question, the government has already cleared Rs.2000 crore and it is expected to be completed before 2018. These apart, a massive work with investment of Rs.5,000 crore is already underway on Ganga (1,620 km), with World Bank assistance, which is the National Waterway No.1, whereby the work includes development of three multi-modal hubs at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, Haldia in West Bengal, and Sahebganj in Bihar, he said.
