Written by: Staff

Kohima Sep 02 (UNI) Nagaland government is orienting its policies in line with the "Look East" policy of the Centre to make use of the potential trade opportunities with the South East Asian countries.

Nagaland Additional Chief Secretary Lalthara, at the 26th meeting of the State Geological Planning Board (SGPB) in Dimapur yesterday, said five border trade centres have been already been opened near the Indo-Myanmer border area.

Nagaland has been exporting agricultural products to Myanmer, he said.

The growth of trade has been dampened in this area due to lack of infrastructure like poor roads and absence of road connectivity, Mr Lalthara said.

He also mentioned that the Centre has proposed to built an Express Highway from Guwahati to Myanmer, which would pass through Nagaland.

''After construction of the highway is completed, the trade volume is bound to grow,'' he added.

The Geological Survey of India (North Eastern Region) Deputy Director General T C Lahiri and Directorate of Geology and Mining Director H K Chishi were also present at the ocassion.
