in­au­gu­rated the In­dia In­fra­struc­ture Expo 2018 on 24 June 2018, which was or­ga­nized by the Depart­ment of Eco­nomic Af­fairs, Min­istry of Fi­nance, Govern­ment of In­dia, in part­ner­ship with FICCI. The three-day ex­po­si­tion co­in­cided with the third An­nual Meet­ing of the Asian In­fra­struc­ture In­vest­ment Bank (AIIB) in Mum­bai on 25-26 June 2018. The Govern­ment of Ch­hat­tis­garh and Govern­ment of Gu­jarat were the part­ner states while the Govern­ment of Ma­ha­rash­tra was the host state.

At the ex­po­si­tion com­pa­nies from the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor show­cased their lat­est so­lu­tions, tech­nolo­gies and of­fer­ings in the realm of in­fra­struc­ture project de­vel­op­ment and de­liv­ery. The par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies also ex­hib­ited their ca­pa­bil­i­ties and key projects de­liv­ered over time. An­other novel fea­ture was the par­tic­i­pa­tion of sev­eral state gov­ern­ments and cen­tral min­istries as they show­cased in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in their re­spec­tive re­gions and na­tional flag­ship pro­grammes to fi­nan­cial in­vestors from across the world.

The ex­po­si­tion had state of the art dig­i­tal dis­play and of­fered the par­tic­i­pants am­ple av­enues to net­work and en­gage in busi­ness meet­ings with po­ten­tial part­ners and in­vestors. The high­light of the ex­po­si­tion was the oil & gas pav­il­ion, which wit­nessed the par­tic­i­pa­tion of lead­ing pub­lic-sec­tor com­pa­nies.

Some of the key na­tional de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes show­cased in­cluded Smart Cities, Sa­gar­mala, Bharat­mala, Ganga Re­ju­ve­na­tion Plan and the River Link­ing project. More than 50 or­ga­ni­za­tions par­tic­i­pated in the ex­po­si­tion in­clud­ing IL&FS, Es­sel In­fra­struc­ture, GAIL, JSPL, Wap­cos, HPCL, BPCL, NHAI, MMRDA, IREDA, ONGC, EIL and IIFCL.
