Vibrant Gujarat

Mr. Ashish Tandon, MD, Egis in India, in an interview with Infrastructure Today Magazine in the January 2015 issue, explains why the state of Gujarat has managed to become one of the most progressive states in India attracting investments.   


“Gujarat rates high on ease of doing business, procedural streamlining and use of IT to facilitate infrastructure development. I feel that special investment zone model works very well. It works excellently in a country like China that thrives on manufacturing. India also has been trying to adapt itself to a similar model but the best part about Gujarat is that they have been able to roll out the concept and make at par with the best in the world. As more and more companies outsource manufacturing and services to India, especially after the thrust from the central government on ‘Make in India’ and ‘Served from India’, it is going to be imperative to offer world class infrastructure and political will to promote industrialization. Gujarat has managed to do both efficiently. Hence I feel that the Gujarat model of development is the most favourable way to attract investments in the country – from within and outside.

What Gujarat thought yesterday, India thinks today…to give you an example – Dholera, the first smart city in India that Egis is associated with, was planned a few years back and it is a model project for the proposed 100 smart cities. Gujarat’s vision and policies are the most favourable in the country. Gujarat has more than once shown the ability to attract investments in the state. So I think the Gujarat model should be showcased; since it has worked for Gujarat, it could well work for the rest of the states too.” says Mr. Tandon.

Egis engaged to design the prestigious India-Myanmar-Thailand highway

The highway was conceptualised at the Trilateral Ministerial Meeting on Transport Linkages in Yangon in April 2002 and was visualized as a Highway of Opportunity and Friendship that would facilitate not just the movement of goods and services, but also of people and ideas. To take this opportunity to the next level of implementation, the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, has ired Egis in India to prepare a Feasibility Report for the upgradation of the road section, and to propose suitable designs, technical schedules, cost estimate of the project, and prepare Bid Documents. Subsequently, MEA intends to call a tender to select the agency for implementation of the construction.

The proposed route of the Trilateral Highway starts from the Indo-Myanmar border at Moreh in Manipur, India, and passes through Tamu, across the border in Myanmar, to reach Mae Sot in Thailand (Thai-Myanmar Border) after traversing through several towns and villages in Myanmar.

The Egis in India team is proud to be associated with this prestigious project.
