India gets green signal for Bangladesh ports

The Bangladesh cabinet has approved a draft agreement, allowing India to use its Chittagong and Mongla ports to transport cargo to its Northeastern states. Shafiul Alam, Bangladesh Cabinet Secretary, shares, “The draft has been prepared for signing the deal with India, but Nepal and Bhutan can be added to it, if they wish to use the two ports. Customs duties and transportation costs will be charged on this freight as it makes its way through Bangladesh territory.”
“Under the proposal deal titled Agreement on the use of Chittagong and Mongla ports for movement of goods to and from India, a new modern tracking system would be used to track cargoes,” he adds.
