Indo-Bangladesh friendship pipeline was recently inagurated. The oil pipeline will supply high speed diesel to Bangladesh which is currently transported through cross-border train from Numaligarh refinery. It is a 130km pipeline between Siliguri (India) and Parbatipur (Bangladesh). Another project inagurated was Dhaka-Tongi-Joydebpur railway project. The cross-border connectivity projects through Bangladesh complement India's Act East policy and aim to smoothen connectivity with landlocked northeast India.
