The multi-billion 1,632-km India-Myanmar-Thailand trilateral highway, to be completed by 2015, would boost trade and business between the two Asian countries, Indian Ambassador to Thailand Anil Wadhwa said Sunday.
Speaking on the sidelines of a function to mark the arrival of the 10th international flight of SpiceJet from Bangalore to Bangkok, Wadhwa said under the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation framework “we have invested $258 million on the highway that falls in our part”.
“We are constructing 71 bridges on the entire length,” he said, adding “we have provided a $500-million loan to Myanmar for setting up the road network”.
He said air traffic between India and Thailand was over 156 flights per week.
