Description ADB and the Government of India are working together to draw up a master plan for the Vizag-Chennai Industrial Corridor. The Supporting the Preparation and Implementation of the Comprehensive Integrated Master Plan for the Vizag-Chennai Industrial Corridor technical assistance program aims to help improve the readiness of government agencies working in the development of the Vizag- Chennai Industrial Corridor so that the area can contribute to the country''s manufacturing growth campaign, popularly known as the Make in India initiative.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy India's manufacturing sector remains relatively underdeveloped compared to its Asian counterparts. This is due in part to poor infrastructure, including roads and railways, power grids, and water and sewer systems. India must address these issues in order to provide an enabling environment for manufacturing industries in the country. The Vizag-Chennai Industrial Corridor has been designated by the government as an area rich in potential for the development of a vibrant manufacturing sector.
