India Opportunity for FIATA members
The first ever FIATA World Congress is to be held in India from 26th September to 29th September 2018 in Hotel Pullman-Novotel, Aerocity. It’s indeed an exciting time for India growth story with Prime Minister Narendra Modi making the strongest possible pitch for India as a ripe investment destination starting from the World Economic Forum in Davos to ASEAN leaders on India’s 69th Republic Day. On top it all, the macro economic position of India looks strong with backing of favourable reports from be it Moody or the World Bank.
Giving a frank opinion and thumbs up to India opportunity, “India has advantage of tech. Logistics industry is very simple. If there is no trade, there is no movement of goods and no need for logistics. Higher the volume of trade, higher is the movement of goods and more demand is generated for the logistics industry. India is a sleeping giant that now has awaken and should capitalise on its tech prowess to make it big for the global logistics industry,” adds Lim.
Giving another hint, he asked guess the reason for Asia emerging as the preferred destination for FIATA World Congress. “China had got it, and it’s India’s turn now. Post 2021 World Congress in Cape Town, FIATA is back into Korea,” pointed out Lim, highlighting that growth in Asia is focus of the global economy, which will be based around technology.
