A delegation of nineteen members from the National Defence College which included senior stalwarts from the Indian civil and armed forces and also personnel from friendly foreign countries like Myanmar, USA Navy, Egypt and Sri Lanka, visited JNPT. The delegation is on an economic tour across the State, as part of their course, visiting key establishments with the objective to study different aspects connected to the development of the State. They visited JNPT as it is the number one container Port in India and a significant contributor to socio-economic development of the State and the country, at large. JNPT is the premiere container Port in India and an interesting case study for the delegation because the Port operates in an environment where, the government, global maritime market and the community at large, all are an intricate part of the ecosystem. So here one can see large scale administrative acumen and implementation of very strategic approach to ensure growth and unison in the ecosystem. The delegates are already accustomed to such work environments and they could draw some inspiration from here, which will help them in their professional role ahead.
