India is well connected to some of its immediate neighbours like Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh by a fairly good network of Roadways. The total trade between the SAARC countries annually is upwards of $20 bn. The Indian Prime Minister has echoed the importance of a multi modal connectivity of Rail and Road transport corridor between the countries that would augment the trade and cultural aspects between the countries. India-driven proposal for a joint venture among BBIN (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and Nepal) countries is an outcome to forge a transport corridor between these said countries.
Strengthened rail and road connectivity will not only provide stimulus to economic development in the region as a whole, but also encourage social and cultural contact and promote tourism among member-states. The rail agreement will enable low-cost, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable transportation in the region and provide trade and economic links for land-locked countries and semi-isolated regions. The road agreement will lay down the protocol for vehicular traffic movement between Saarc countries for better people-to-people connectivity and cargo movement.
