Plans to start international flights to Mandalay, Bangkok: Manipur CM | North East India News,The Indian Express

“Works are in progress to further develop the airport, including a new integrated terminal and an air cargo terminal, to consolidate the air connectivity infrastructure in the state”

The Chief Minister was speaking during the inaugural session of the ‘One Day International Business Summit, Gateway Manipur-Connecting ASEAN Countries’ in Imphal.

He said the Imphal International Airport is the third-busiest airport in Northeast India. “Works are in progress to further develop the airport, including a new integrated terminal and an air cargo terminal, to consolidate the air connectivity infrastructure in the state,” Singh said.

“Northeast connects India to one of the most economically dynamic and politically significant geographies of the world,” he noted.

He stressed that as the global power axis shifts to the Indo-Pacific, developing a secure and prosperous North Eastern Region as a convergence of India’s “Act East Policy” and “Neighbourhood First Policy” will be vital towards realising a common vision of a “Free and Open Indo-Pacific.”

Underscoring Manipur as the gateway to ASEAN and beyond, Singh said better connectivity would have a positive impact on sectors like tourism, logistics, services, healthcare, education, IT and IT-enabled services towards ensuring inclusive and sustainable growth.
