`Work on Kaladan river project in Mizo to start soon'

Our Bureau

New Delhi , March 19

THE Governor of Mizoram, Mr A.R. Kohli, has said that India and Myanmar were working on a $500 million project along the Kaladan river, which runs through Mizoram and Myanmar to facilitate trade between India and Myanmar.

"Once the right water way and road links are established, commodities and goods will have an economically viable passage from India's east coast to Akyab in Myanmar and, thereafter, through Mizoram to other States in the North-East," Mr Kohli said.

Work on the project, which envisages upgradation of the port facilities at Akyab, is expected to begin in the next three years.

The Governor was speaking at a meeting organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) as part of the on going North East Expo 2004.
