While a dozen of bilateral treaties are expected to be signed, one deal which has eluded media limelight is the Internet bandwidth deal that will enable India to buy off unused Internet bandwidth from the neighbouring country.

Bangladesh government has already given a Cabinet approval after New Delhi aporoached Dhaka with the proposal.

This deal would make North-East India one of most important Internet gateway and solve the region’s communication bottleneck.
