Conclusion Of Event & Group Photograph


One of the major pillars on which any economy stands is quality infrastructure. While India has made considerable investment and progress on the infrastructure front in recent years, it still lags behind considerably in terms of availability and quality of infrastructure. The government has already embarked on a series of measures to accelerate infrastructure development, resulting in a vast improvement in India’s rank in infrastructure as per the Global Competitive Ranking from 81 in 2015-16 to 40 in 2017-18. However, India still has a lot of ground to cover in terms of various aspects of infrastructure such as access to water and sanitation, access to electricity, internet penetration and the overall quality of infrastructure. For rapid infrastructure development, the focus therefore needs to shift from merely upgrading the existing infrastructure to building new-age infrastructure. A three-pronged approach, including a) the development of an efficient, sustainable and modern energy program, b) the development of new-age transport & logistics and construction methods, and c) a focus on Smart Cities will help build the India of Tomorrow.

Accordingly, the theme of this year’s event is NextGen Infra: Building India of Tomorrow.
