Transportation and Communications is essential for the country's development. When Transportation and Communications is established, civilians are able to travel freely, faster and safer. Furthermore, civilians will have access to skills and knowledge from foreign countries. When Transportation and Communications improve, problems such as insufficient materials, unstable prices and so on will decrease. Furthermore, businesses will be able to work together with locals bringing in good business.
