A core objective of the 11th Five-Year Plan (2008-2012) of the Government is reducing regional disparities. Investments in infrastructure and services in the NER, one of India's less developed regions, have priority. The 10th and 11th plans highlight the vital role of capital cities in NER's socioeconomic transformation. Given the difficult access to and remoteness of NER, the capital cities perform a function of a much higher order than other cities of similar size in India. With the opening up of trade with neighboring countries and the emergence of transport corridors in the region, these cities are expected to play an even greater strategic role in NER's economy as commercial and business hubs besides being administrative centers. Investments in urban infrastructure and services will be the key to unleashing the potential of these cities to catalyze the growth of NER.
