Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport, Bimalendra Nidhi has shared that the vehicular movement within Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) will be operated from September 18.

Minister Nidhi said so while addressing media persons today at the Tribhuvan International Airport upon his arrival from Thimpu, Bhutan where he, together with the Transport Ministers from India, Bangladesh and Bhutan, signed the BBIN Motor Vehicle Pact on Monday.

Minister Nidhi informed that all the bilateral agreements among the BBIN countries for the implementation of the newly inked Pact will be made by the mid-September so that the regulation of passenger and cargo vehicular traffic amongst the four SAARC countries would come into effect from September 18.

Nepal and India, however, have already signed the Motor Vehicle Agreement during the 18th SAARC Summit held in Kathmandu last November.

Nidhi further shared that the Pact would not only help facilitate seamless and unhindered transport between the BBIN countries but also help in promotion of the economic development and tourism of these countries.

Not only that, the Minister also expressed his confidence that the Pact would ease off in transporting the construction materials from the third countries to Nepal for the reconstruction and the resettlement of the quake-survivors.

The other BBIN countries were also learnt to have acknowledged the newly sealed ‘historic’ and ‘milestone’, said Nidhi.

During the ministerial-meeting in Thimpu, Nidhi also had an audience with the Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck who expressed his sadness over the loss caused by the April 25 quake and showed his willingness to help in reconstruction for the quake-survivors. RSS
