Given that national growth will be at twice the size, opportunity is complimentary to its speed and volume. Adding, international trade, adoption of updated digital & physical infrastructure will be the key strategy. Tier 2 & 3 Airports needs better connectivity – Transport & Digital Highway. However, non-compliance of regulations, maze of non-standard processes and ignorance to ESG can impede our trajectory and speed.”
