Long coastline
India has a more than 7,500 km-long coastline, which is being further developed to support trade.

Robust Economic Growth
India is among the fastestgrowing economies in the world and is gradually increasing its share in
 international trade.

Potential as a strategic transshipment hub
Most of the cargo ships that traverse between East Asia and America, Europe or Africa, pass through Indian   territorial waters. As such, India has the potential to develop itself as a transshipment hub.

Cost-Competitive Workforce
India offers a cost-competitive workforce for the development of port infrastructure.
