I think the Chief Minister and the minister have made a statement in the assembly. Its part of an agreement. This something which is a reality. Its going to happen.”
Stating efforts were underway to make Mopa International Airport a cargo hub, the minister said the upcoming project would be an employment generator for the youth.
