‘India may trade with Central Asia through Chabahar Port’

Sarbananda Sonowal, the Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways (MoPSW) and Ayush, reaffirmed India’s commitment to utilising Iran’s Chabahar Port to maximise maritime logistical opportunities with the Central Asian region. The multi-modal logistical corridor is the International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC), will be connected via the bustling Shahid Beheshti Port at Chabahar in Iran. This will reduce the government’s maritime logistical expenses, which will increase trade between the two regions. The minister was speaking on Chabahar Day. He said the government was engaging with high-level diplomatic group from Central Asian nations in Mumbai in this connection.
