Goa has the ability to become a manufacturing hub

Goa: International standards for the maritime sector and could also play a role in promoting the country’s blue economy, union minister for road, transport and highways Nitin Gadkari said on Sunday.Laying the foundation stone for the Konkan Maritime Cluster, Gadkari said that the maritime cluster will contribute to the country’s economy and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for Atmanirbhar Bharat.“Goa can be a growth centre for marine hub and maritime cluster, which is a need for future of India and this will be a historical contribution by Goa to the country,” Gadkari said. “Konkan Maritime Cluster will be a growth engine for the development of Goa creating employment potential for thousands of Goan youths.”

Gadkari said that there is a need for ships with new designs which can fish 100 nautical miles out at sea. He also said that India’s shipping sector needs new ships, technology and engines.Chief minister Pramod Sawant who was present for the function, said that even though Goa has 11 rivers and one major port, the waterways and ports are not utilised to their optimum potential. “The government is ready to give required support. Goa has a lot of scope for blue industry. This industry should come forward and approach the government,” Sawant said.
