At the recently concluded Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, Shri Narendra Modi emphasized upon Gujarat’s growing importance in the world. He said, “Earlier, Gujarat was the gateway to the Globe from India. Now it is becoming the Global gateway to India.” This is certainly true metaphorically, because of Gujarat’s engagements with the world in the fields of Industry, Education and Technology, it is also true literally, since today, Gujarat’s ports account for 26% of total national cargo and 72% of cargo handled by ports under State Governments of India. If the Kandla port is included, Gujarat handles 35% of the national cargo.
This has been possible because of Shri Narendra Modi’s vision, leadership and his focus on the holistic development of the entire coastal region. Gujarat has a coastline of 1600 Km, which is the largest among any state in India.Speaking about his ideas for the development of Gujarat’s coasts, Shri Modi said, “We have launched an ambitious programme for all round development of our coastal belts (Sagarkhedu Vikas Yojana). Along with this, we are setting up new port cities in coastal locations. Investments in world-class rail-road-pipeline infrastructure linking the coastline have helped Gujarat’s ports dominate India’s maritime scenario.”
Ports – an integral part of Gujarat’s Development Process
Laying down his vision for integrating ports with other Infrastructure, Shri Modi said, “Our progress and development is not just limited to ports. Our vision is for port led development with port based Special Economic Zones, ware-houses, cold storage networks, railroad connectivity and related infrastructure facilities being established”. Consequently, many of the SEZs planned and 9 of the 13 existing SIRs in Gujarat are port based.Realizing the importance of linking ports to roads and railways. This model has made connectivity possible at Mundra, Dahej, Pipavav Navlakhi, Bhavnagar and Okha.
