Senior Union government officials and representatives from the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Auto Car India have already chalked out the possible road routes for the rally. The convoy will traverse through ASEAN countries Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar and then enter India from Moreh in Imphal.
The rally will pass through Guwahati on December 17, when economic ministers of ASEAN countries will meet in the principal business city in northeastern India. The flag down of the rally in Guwahati and the rally entering Moreh in Manipur, on the border with Myanmar, is part of India's move to increase connectivity with the northeast.
The rally will, after traversing 8,000 km, end in Delhi on Dec 20 to mark the commemorative event being held in New Delhi Dec 20−21 to mark the 20th anniversary of India's relationship with the bloc and the 10th anniversary of ASEAN−India summit−level partnership.
Along the route, at stops, cultural and business events are planned to showcase trading opportunities.
