Sea Ports : Harbouring Growth

INTERNATIONAL TRADE is the cornerstone of global economy. Exchange of goods amongst countries widens the choice of supply and ensures that production takes place where it is the cheapest and the best. This is reflected in the intensification of globalization and the fact that world trade is growing faster than the world output. World trade relies on cheap and secure transport. Seaborne trade plays a key role in this context since an estimated 90% of global trade by weight takes place by seaborne mode. As trade grows, the demand for maritime transport also grows.

Ports are economic and service provision units of remarkable importance since they act as points for the interchange of two transport modes- maritime and land, either rail or road. Ports are India’s gateways to the world. India’s coastline of about 7517 Kms is spread on the western and eastern shelves of the mainland as also along the sea islands. The coastline is studded with 12 Major Ports besides 200 Non-Major Ports. While the major ports come under the administrative purview of the central government, the responsibility for the development and management of the non-major Ports rests with the respective maritime states/ union territories.
