The President of Asian Development Bank, Mr. Takehiko Nakao, called on the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today.

The Prime Minister urged Mr. Nakao that the Asian Development Bank should take up the Railways sector in India as a priority, and complete one transformational project which will create a visible impact. He suggested that the ADB could take up one railway station and make it world class. The Railways can then follow this up with other similar projects. The Prime Minister said ADB should foster more regional connectivity projects.
