TOKYO (Kyodo News) — The government decided Friday to sign a pact to link Asia by highway in a signing ceremony next Monday in Shanghai, government officials said Friday.
Signatories to the U.N. pact will be required to improve their highways to meet the criteria of the 140,000-kilometer Asian Highway network, which is to link 32 nations to one another and to Europe.
But Japan is an island nation, as we are often reminded. Maybe there’s an Asian Highway ferry between S. Korea and here…or plans for a terribly long bridge.
I think the Japan highway must be akin to Hawaii’s interstate highways.Posted by kuri at April 24, 2004 12:04 AM
