外文标题：Japanese experts to visit northeastern states for infrastructure project
TOKYO: A team of Japanese experts will visit India's northeastern states in next three weeks to study the details for the survey for infrastructure development projects in the area, a top official here has said.
The project is expected to start before the end of next year and will enhance connectivity and development in northeastern states, described by China as India's "most neglected region".
"The preparatory survey has already commenced for the infrastructure development project which will include reconstruction of roads and old bridges," said Sinya Ejima, chief representative of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which provides technical cooperation and other forms of aid promoting economic and social development in India.
"Our team of experts will visit the states barring Arunachal Pradesh in third week of January to do a detailed study and the work is expected to start by end of the next year," Ejima said.

If the road infrastructure develops in other six states it can easily be extended to Arunachal Pradesh.
