Speaking at the virtual press meet, Mudras said, “The Indian road infrastructure and highways construction industry, including the equipment and materials, are the biggest component in driving the economy and the second-largest employer after agriculture. With the Government’s projection of Rs 111 trillion investments for 2020-25 to develop social and economic infrastructure to boost economic growth, allied industries such as the construction equipment market will be augmented.  INFRACONEX aims to create a business/experience for all the industry stakeholders such as construction equipment companies, distributors, policy makers, government, financial institutions, associations, organizations, forums, and alliances related to the construction equipment market.”

The expo, he added, will also help the MSME companies from the construction sector to connect with the financial institutions to better understand the Government policies of funding MSME. “This would be especially useful given that 30 pc of equipment manufacturers in India comprise Gujarat-based MSMEs. Special products zone will be created to display the innovative products manufactured by the MSMEs,” he concluded.
