 From a Correspondent

New Delhi, April 23:  DoNER Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Monday said that India’s "Act East" policy is crucial to the entire South East Asia. Speaking at a conference on “India-Myanmar Trade and Connectivity” organized by the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations Dr Singh said, Myanmar is one of the key pillars of India’s “Act East” policy, since through the land borders it connects India via the North Eastern States with the South East Asian countries. “A significant fact to note is that many North Eastern States share a common border with Myanmar,” he said.
