The Guwahati-Dhaka direct flight service will resume within a fortnight. This was announced by Assam Act East Policy Affairs Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary during the two-day India-Bangladesh Stakeholders’ Meet in Guwahati.
The Spice Jet had suspended the flight operations less than three months after flag-off by Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
Addressing the function, Patowary further added that this Meet gave an opportunity to all the stakeholders to explore the possibilities of India-Bangladesh trade with emphasis on connectivity at the fulcrum of such business cooperation.
He expressed his conviction that this Meet will open vistas to scale new heights of mutual benefit in trade and commerce removing all bottlenecks in the sector.
“This Meet is not all about making new connections with Bangladesh, but only to reconnect the disconnected routes through highways, railways and waterways,” the Minister said. He requested the neighbouring country to offer liberal pricing for Assam and Tripura to have easy i-way access from Cox Bazar.
Deliberating at length on immense possibilities of health, education and tourism, the Minister said that roadshows will be organized on these sectors in Bangladesh for the mutual benefit of the people of both the countries.
