Need to bet­ter in­land wa­ter­ways

Cargo Talk - - Family Album -

The PHD Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try or­gan­ised a one-day con­fer­ence on Mar­itime In­fra­struc­ture in In­dia, which saw se­ri­ous dis­cus­sions on in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment. The par­tic­i­pants dis­cussed the need to de­velop mar­itime in­fra­struc­ture in or­der to strengthen the coun­try’s po­si­tion in global trade. The de­vel­op­ment of In­land wa­ter­ways, which is an en­vi­ron­men­tal friendly mode of trans­port, would re­duce pres­sure on rail and road sec­tor. Del­e­gates urged the need for greater co­op­er­a­tion from state gov­ern­ments to clas­sify rivers in or­der to map their nav­i­ga­tion po­ten­tial.
