‘Goa can be a logistics hub’

March 03, 2013 12:00 am | Updated 05:28 am IST - PANAJI:

The Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) has highlighted the State’s potential to emerge as a logistics hub in western India, catering not only to Goa but also large parts of south Maharashtra and north Karnataka.

This was part of a presentation made by GCCI president Manguirish Pai Raikar to Goa Minister for Industries Mahadev Naik on Friday.

The GCCI felt that though the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises recognised logistics as an industrial activity, the State was yet to grant recognition and give due importance to this activity.

The Minister and Parimal Rai, Principal Secretary, Industries, asked GCCI to prepare a road map with specific proposals for development of logistics in Goa.

The chamber’s views are significant in view of the ongoing exercise by the Goa government to finalise a industrial policy.

Mr. Raikar, co-chairman of GCCI logistics committee Chandrakant Gawas, Dean Menezes, Sandip Sood and R.S. Kamat were part of the delegation.

It can cater to Maharashtra and Karnataka too: GCCI
