The Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi has ded­i­cated the fourth con­tainer ter­mi­nal at Jawa­har­lal Nehru Port Trust at the Ground­Break­ing Cer­e­mony of Navi Mum­bai In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The Prime Min­is­ter said glob­al­i­sa­tion is a re­al­ity of our times and to keep pace with glob­al­i­sa­tion, to avail qual­ity in­fra­struc­ture. He said the Sa­gar­mala project is ush­er­ing not only de­vel­op­ment of ports but also port-led de­vel­op­ment. The Prime Min­is­ter said that the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia is de­vot­ing sig­nif­i­cant ef­forts to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of wa­ter­ways.

The Prime Min­is­ter said that the Navi Mum­bai air­port project has been pend­ing for years. He said de­layed projects cause many prob­lems, and the PRA­GATI ini­tia­tive had been ini­ti­ated, to give pri­or­ity to com­ple­tion of projects. He said In­dia’s avi­a­tion sec­tor is grow­ing tremen­dously, and there is a sharp in­crease in the num­ber of peo­ple fly­ing. This makes qual­ity in­fra­struc­ture in the avi­a­tion sec­tor of prime im­por­tance, he added. The Prime Min­is­ter said that the Union Gov­ern­ment has brought an avi­a­tion pol­icy that is trans­form­ing the sec­tor. He added that a strong avi­a­tion sec­tor also gives more eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties. Bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity leads to more tourists com­ing to In­dia, he said.
