Serving as the gateway to India, the Mumbai Port is instrumental in the development of the national economy, trade and commerce.
Situated on the west coast of India, the Mumbai Port has a harbour of about 400 kms. The main navigational Harbour Channel is, for the great part, a natural deep-water fairway.
Celebrating the rich history and importance of Mumbai port, the Mumbai Port Trust in association with Elets Technomedia Pvt Ltd is coming out with a special issue of eGov magazine.
It will showcase the emerging growth potential and opportunities of the ports sector in India.
The Special issue will help the ports industry to connect with each other.
To tap the vast potential and attract more vessels, the Government of India is working on a new cruise tourism policy. Currently the country has 70 cruises. New infrastructure will be developed at five major ports, including Mumbai, Goa, New Mangalore, Chennai and Cochin. It includes hospitality, retail, shopping and restaurants.
