Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy India's manufacturing sector is crucial for job creation and economic progress, but its contribution to gross domestic product is small and is less competitive than in countries in East Asia and Southeast Asia. To help fulfill the national economic policy and strategic objectives of increasing the manufacturing sector's GDP share and creating jobs, the Government of India has adopted economic corridor development (ECD) as a strategy to stimulate economic activities through the integration of urban and industrial clusters, and to connect its manufacturing base with regional value chains and global production networks. The Government of Tamil Nadu has also adopted ECD as a policy instrument to spur manufacturing growth through the development of the Chennai-Kanyakumari Industrial Corridor.
Impact Competitiveness of the manufacturing sector improved
