Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla today convened the first meeting of Inter-Ministerial Coordination Group for comprehensive management of relations with neighboring countries. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in a tweet that the IMCG provided a comprehensive direction with a whole-of-government approach to promote better connectivity, stronger inter-linkages, and greater people-to-people connect with India's neighbours.

Sources said issues considered by today’s Inter-Ministerial Coordination Group meeting include the construction of border infrastructure that would facilitate greater trade with neighbours like Nepal. Special needs of countries such as Bhutan and Maldives in terms of supply of essential commodities, opening rail connectivity with Bangladesh, humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan and Myanmar, and fisheries issues with Sri Lanka were among the other issues considered.
