India-Myanmar-Thailand Joint Task Force Meeting on the Trilateral Highway Project

The India-Myanmar-Thailand Joint Task Force Meeting on the Trilateral Highway Project was held in New Delhi on 10-11 September 2012.

The meeting enabled the three sides to review the present status of the project and discuss future steps. It was recalled that the idea of a Trilateral Highway from Moreh in India to Mae Sot in Thailand through Myanmar was conceived at the Trilateral Ministerial Meeting on Transport Linkages in Yangon in April 2002. The Trilateral Highway represents the most significant step in the establishment of connectivity between India and the South East Asian countries.

The three sides agreed to make all efforts to establish Trilateral connectivity by 2016.
