About Conference

Ports play a key role in the Indian economy. At present country’s global trade of nearly 95 per cent in terms of volume and 70 per cent by value is carried on through marine transport. Traffic at major ports is anticipated at a compound annual growth rate of about 8-9 per cent, from 511 million tonnes (MT) April-February 2011-12 to 1,214 MT by 2020, whereas the traffic at non-major ports is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.96 per cent from the present level of 288.80 Million Tonnes to 1269.59 Million Tonnes by 2019-20. The Maritime Agenda 2020 published by the Ministry of Shipping, Government of India shows an ambitious plan for major and minor ports for development. As per the agenda, the capacity at 13 major ports is likely to increase to 1459.53 Million Tonnes by 2020 from the present level of 616.73 Million Tonnes. The capacity at non-major ports is poised to increase by 2020 to 1660.02 Million Tonnes from the present level of 346.31 Million Tonnes.

Thus, the Indian ports are aiming at a surplus capacity of above 25 per cent over the projected demand. This will enable the ports to provide berthing facilities on arrival of the ships, thus achieving zero waiting time for the vessels. In order to realize this growth potential, a number of policy initiatives have been taken during the recent past. Attention has been focused on improvement in infrastructure, modernization of existing facilities, better logistic chain, increased avenues for Special Economic Zone, type of projects etc.

The traffic handled at Gujarat's ports shot up to 259 MT from last year's 231 MT resulting in 12.12% increase in the traffic handled. Gujarat has achieved the par excellence position as a Maritime state. Apart from port sector development, Gujarat has paved the way by laying foundation of Ro-Ro ferry service between Dahej and Ghogha. Gujarat government has also granted permissions for private sector companies to ensure the up gradation/development of infrastructure facilities at GMB’s ports. Some projects like construction of jetty, block wharf, rail connectivity are under construction or likely to be completed by year end. GMB also aims to create port capacity of more than 500 million tons by 2015 and more than 1000 million tons by 2020. Shipbuilding is the sunrise industry for Gujarat. The total shipbuilding capacity of 10 operational shipyards in Gujarat is nearly 1.11 million DWT. At present Gujarat enjoys more than 60% share in the Indian shipbuilding order book. According to the Maritime Agenda 2020, the national target is to capture a 5% share of the global market by 2020. Gujarat aims to maintain/ expand its share of the national target and this will require substantial investments in increasing capacity. GMB has developed a cluster-based approach to shipbuilding by envisioning establishment of Marine Ship-Building Parks. In order to bring in vibrant growth potential in port & allied sector, the Government of India has been focused on investment in port based infrastructure, modernization of port operation and emphasizes on port based special economic zone (SEZ) projects etc. Keeping this in mind, the 4th National Conference on Infrastructure and Ports with the theme “Opportunities in Gujarat Ports & Maritime Sector” is being organised on August 23, 2012 at Ahmedabad Management Association (AMA) Auditorium, Ahmedabad. The event will provide an excellent platform for all concerned to benefit from the knowledge experience and vision of national and international experts in the ports and maritime sector.
