Govt will develop 4 land ports to boost trade with India
The government has launched a fresh project to develop the infrastructures of three land ports to boost trade with India through regional connectivity.

The security features of Benapole land port will also be modernised under the project.

The three new land ports are Shewla in Sylhet, Bhomra in Satkhira and Ramgar in Khagrachhari districts.

"Under the Bangladesh Regional Connectivity Project-I, immigration and customs facilities will be upgraded through the necessary infrastructural development to expedite trade and business with India," a planning ministry official has said.

He said the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) has already cleared the project involving Tk 6.93 billion (Tk 693 crore). Bangladesh Land Port Authority is tasked with implementing the project by June, 2021, according to BSS.
