India is committed to enhance ties with Bangladesh, Assam state chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal told Bangladesh commerce minister Tipu Munshi at the India-Bangladesh Stakeholders’ Meet for Trade and Connectivity in Guwahati recently. Both Assam and Bangladesh agreed to work on sectors like garments, health tourism, information technology and education.

Sonowal said ports in Bangladesh need to be linked with Assam through the Brahmaputra-Barak-Padma-Meghna riverine waterways to facilitate economic growth of the region. He also outlined the need of restoring rail connectivity between India’s North East and Bangladesh.

The chief minister promised quick implementation of agreements, which would ensure the northeast India’s access to Chattogram and Mongla ports in Bangladesh, and execution of the Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) motor vehicle agreement, according to Indian media reports.

Sonowal later met a 14-member delegation of the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
