Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project (KMTTP)

An Indian delegation met with the Arakan Army inside Myanmar and held talks about the road network that is vital for the Kaladan project.

The Kaladan project is nearly $484-million connectivity scheme aimed at firming up overland and water connectivity with Southeast Asia.

It, among others, involves the connecting of Aizwal in Mizoram with the deep-water Sittwe Port in Myanmar.

A Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) initiative, the project seeks to provide an alternate route between the landlocked Northeast and the rest of India, a purpose currently only served by the narrow Siliguri corridor.

The part of the Kaladan project on the Indian side is ready as the road infrastructure has been completed on our side but nothing has been done on the Myanmar side so far.
