AGRI INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT:
The experience world over has demonstrated that impeccable agri supply chain infrastructure is key to a vibrant and competitive agriculture and agro industrial sector. The piecemeal attempts so far of setting up infrastructure for agri produce in Gujarat will be replaced by an well-orchestrated effort from the Government for coordinated and integrated infrastructure development all across the State.
