New Delhi, Oct 16 (UNI) Enhancing connectivity within the country, and with our neighbours in the SAARC region and across South-East Asia is an important national priority, Vice President Hamid Ansari said.
''It is here that the experience and expertise would count in timely execution of infrastructure projects, with appropriate risk management systems,'' the Vice President said in an official release issued here today.
Bridge construction today is a highly specialised activity and is undergoing rapid changes in design, usage of materials and construction methodologies, he said.
Imbibing the latest global technologies would bring down the gestation period of infrastructure projects and improve our overall economic efficiency.
The construction industry not only plays an important role in creating infrastructure but also in employment generation and effective capital utilisation, he added.
