ByRakhee Bhattacharya
Pages 15

This chapter argues that India could benefit from BCIM Economic Corridor if Northeastern Region can act as an equal partner of the sub-regional cooperation. To make Northeast an equal partner, its economy has to be revamped and market has to be made competitive and efficient rather than making use of it as a transit route and dumping ground for goods produced in the mainland. Once infrastructure, market, congenial industry and other public utilities are ensured, the region would gain in relation with the neighbours.
