TAPI project off the ground but road ahead remains long

ALMATY, Kazakhstan -- After two decades of delays, construction has begun on a pipeline to connect the abundant gas fields of Central Asia with the huge markets of the Indian subcontinent.

     Leaders of Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan put an end to the years of waiting on Dec. 13, when they gathered in the Turkmen city of Mary to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the 1,814km TAPI pipeline, named after the initials of the four countries sponsoring it.
