The government is making efforts to attract FDI in infrastructure sector to address liquidity crunch faced by the COVID-19-hit economy. Stressing on the need to bring down the logistics cost, Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport, Highways & MSME, said “Rs 1 lakh crore Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will result in reducing the travel time between the two metropolises to barely 28 hours resulting in lesser logistics cost by way of enhanced cargo movement in lesser time.”
Gadkari also urged private players to join hands with government. He said the economy, hit by coronavirus, is passing through a crucial phase and requires liquidity. At the same, COVID-19 crisis should be turned into an opportunity as the world is now recognising India as a good place for investment.
