DP World has announced it will be seeking investment opportunities worth over US$ 1 billion to develop logistics infrastructure in India over the next few years. The focus will be on the development of port facilities within the Sagarmala project, the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, river transportation, cold chain storage, port-led special economic zones, free trade zones, ICDs and cruise terminals.
DP World will work closely with the National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) to identify and develop suitable projects. In particular one of the key priorities of the Indian government, which DP World aims to support, is preventing the loss of agricultural products. This can be managed through having adequate marine and waterways infrastructure including cold storage as well as inland waterway development.
