............ and this is how, Trivandrum is going to be the Gate Way of Asia.Lol, none of us are building a $ 1.2 billion project! :lol: But, you are right, the Vizhinjam port, like say the Vallarpadam project, will directly employ less people than say a feeder port like Cochin. However, with the lowest container rates available, a deep-water transshipment port is also a magnet for SEZs. Dubai is a clear example of this.
By making Indian exports more competitive - through reducing shipping costs by as much as $ 400 per TEU - the port will help Indian exporters expand their business and thus create tens of thousands of jobs, not just in Kerala but across the country.
So there will be additional space in technopark as IBS, Tata, UST moves to its own campus. thus more space to offer for new entrants to TP
We can expect the Reliance fresh outlet being granded the permission shortly, before december.
