"The need of the hour is large-scale job creation, and infrastructure is one such sector where much more focus is required. The current state of connectivity in the BBIN sub-region and the future need of its multi-modal connectivity are to be looked at in this context, CUTS International Secretary General Pradeep Mehta said in a statement.

He said coronavirus-induced supply-side shocks can fast spill over to the demand side resulting in large-scale unemployment and associated developmental challenges.

He was speaking at a webinar on ''creating an enabling political economy discourse for multi-modal connectivity in the BBIN sub-region.

CUTS International Executive Director Bipul Chatterjee said there is a greater scope for land-locked countries like Nepal and Bhutan to increase their access to sea by use of as well as integrating with existing and developing inter-modal and multi-modal infrastructure between India and Bangladesh, among others.

He added that innovative initiatives with optimal regulations, including large-scale digitisation of the means of connectivity, should be given priority. PTI RR HRS
