New Delhi, India

The workshop run by the Transport Division and the Subregional Office for South and Southwest Asia, in cooperation with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will discuss and finalize key arrangements with India for the pilot application of the ESCAP Secure Cross-border Transport Model (SCBTM) for transit between Bhutan and India. SCBTM is one of the four ESCAP mutually complementary models for transport facilitation. Its application to cross-border/transit transport can help improve efficiency of transport and also address security and social concerns associated with cross-border/transit transport.
