Danish Official Visit to India

Gujarat and New Delhi

10 - 13 January 2017


In the past 10 years, India has seen an average annual growth of 6.6% of seaborne goods. In order to handle that growth and to promote trade, India now focuses on the maritime sector and ports. The government plans to double harbour capacity and mobilize DKK 100bn of investments by 2025. Gujarat is the state in India with the longest coastline of all, 1700km, and the greatest number of active ports, 49, which together handle 41% of India’s maritime load. Gujarat has been chosen to house one of the two national maritime clusters that are anticipated in the national ‘Sagar Mala’ action plan. In order to expand capacity, the state has planned a number of projects in the maritime sector and is the focus of the national campaign to develop the maritime sector.
