In a bid to prop up business relations between Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar (BCIM), around eighty delegates from these four major nations have started a twelve day road tour next to the well known Southern Silk trade path from the city of Kolkata to Kunming, China.
The convention started up on last Friday (February 22).
The said rally is sponsored by giants comprising ONGC, Tata Motors, and Autocar India, and backed up by the administrations of these four nations. Aligning the said convention takes too much time as well as effort, and this job is being addressed by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII).
The thought of holding a Kunming-to-Kolkata road took form with a declaration on the 2006 Delhi gathering of the Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar Forum, and the proposal was shortly acknowledged at the combined statement between the Indian PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh and the China’s President Hu Jintao, later during the same year.
There were a lot of uncertain blocks over the past 6 year period, primarily owing to the sensitive nature of the regions that the rally will move across, and there’s also the mission of arriving at a consensus on what way is perfect to take.
On February 6, around 9 part takers from the Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar (BCIM nations) start out from Kunming to fruitfully finish the initial test run of the complete route.
The said course is explained below -
- Kolkata to
- Jessore to
- Dhaka to
- Sylhet to
- Silchar to
- Imphal to
- Ka Lay to
- Mandalay to
- Ruili to
- Tengchong to
- Erhai Lake to
- Dali and finally
The ritual flag-down will happen at Kunming, China by 5th of the coming month.
