Chairing the 10th meeting for SCO transport ministers, Gadkari said, "Connectivity is itself an economic multiplier... connectivity with SCO countries is a priority for India. We must ensure demand-driven and sustainable development and cooperation but also respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of the countries.

Noting that India is committed towards the promotion of solutions to make the transport sector more efficient and reliable, Gadkari said that India attaches special attention to SCO in promoting economy and people-to-people interaction in the region.
