India has emerged as one of the faster growing economies in the world and is expected to be one of the top three economic powers of the world over the next 10-15 years, backed by its strong democracy and partnerships.
The Government, through the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), is creating new and upgrading existing infrastructure to achieve the $5 trillion economy by 2025. To achieve this target, the country needs to spend $1.4 trillion over the next few years on infrastructure.
Projects worth Rs 111 lakh crores have been identified that will be implemented in the next five years. The government aims to ensure timely implementation of these projects, spread across 18 states and union territories, by 2024-25.
Regional connectivity and the development of infrastructure and services amongst the nations is a key driver for the increased growth of global partnerships and development.
Nepal and India enjoy excellent bilateral ties. As close neighbors, India and Nepal share unique ties of friendship and cooperation characterized by an open border and deep-rooted people-to-people contacts of kinship and culture. There has been a long tradition of free movement of people across the border.
The East India Summit will focus on the opportunities available and the solutions that are on offer for enhancing cooperation in the critical areas like airport, road and port infrastructure development; increasing air connectivity and waterways linkage; and collaborations for capacity building in the region.
