Government has held a discussion with Malaysian giant Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Holdings on ways to increase collaboration for Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway and some other road projects.
A delegation of the company met Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis recently.
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Heads of Mission (HoMs) conference on May 31 in New Delhi, Indian Ambassadors to 10 nations called on Fadnavis in Mumbai.
“It was a pleasure to meet the Indian Ambassadors and High Commissioners to 10 nations as part of annual HoM Conference 2016. Prime Minister Modi believes that India lives in states. So such interactions are very important for presenting strengths of our states to world,” Fadnavis said.
The Chief Minister said that he shared Maharashtra’s growth story, reforms, speedy governance, immense opportunities and the role HoMs can play in accelerating the growth of the state with the visiting dignitaries.
“Lately, many investors are experiencing unimaginable speed of Maharashtra government along with the transparent and efficient way of working,” Fadnavis said, adding that he discussed ways to increase collaboration for Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway and few other road projects.
“We had a very good meeting with Malaysian delegation of CIDB holdings,” he said.
He informed the delegation that investors have an opportunity to invest in industries, Smart City project, tourism and other infrastructure projects in the state. He also said that Maharashtra has decided to celebrate 2017 as ‘Visit Maharashtra’ year.
Kaustubh Dhawse, Officer on Special Duty (OSD) in the Chief Minister Office (CMO), said that Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has already begun the process of land acquisition.
“The Chief minister has set a target to complete this Super Communication Expressway by the end of 2019 and hence, all departments are jointly working expeditiously,” he said.
