Panjim: The Sixth Edition of CII Goa Conference on Logistics will be held on October 24, 2020.
According to a statement, the main objective of the conference is to deliberate on issues relating to measures required for promoting multimodal logistics in the state.
The main focus areas that will be discussed during the conference are development of air-cargo in the state, multi-modal logistics park in Goa and blue economy.
”With India gaining preference over China post-COVID-19, there is a strong prospect of Goa emerging as a logistics hub of India, by pooling the “Make in India” and “Atmanirbhar” campaign. Logistics is the backbone of the economy, providing efficient, cost effective flow of goods on which other commercial sectors depend. Logistics has become one of the most important part of the business economic system and is a major global economic activity,” the statement said.
”The Logistics industry in India is evolving rapidly and becoming more competitive in terms of its offering to the customers and how it would help to reduce their logistics costs and provide effective services. The state Government will have to holistically plan the development for the coming decades and indicate which lands could be utilised for different sectors like manufacturing, technology, tourism, education, entertainment, food and agriculture, logistics, etc. Apart from this, the Government along with all stakeholders will have to have a design-led strategy and welcome units that have very good capability and capacity to deliver,” it added.
