The Shipping Ministry today said it will organise a workshop at Bhubaneswar tomorrow to increase awareness about coastal shipping and inland navigation.
The workshop on 'Promoting Coastal Shipping and Inland Navigation in India' will be the second in a series of workshops the ministry plans to hold over the next 6-8 months to create awareness about the Sagarmala programme among the stake holders and to engage with them, a release by the ministry said.
The first such workshop was held on June 9 in New Delhi.
"The main objective of tomorrow's workshop is to increase awareness about coastal shipping and inland navigation, with the purpose of increasing their modal share in the logistical modal mix from the current level of approximately 6 per cent to about 12 per cent by 2025 under Sagarmala," the release said.
