Apart from these, DPT will also sign MoUs for the greenery of the port area and construction as well.

The Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways is also in the process of finalising more than 44 MoUs to be signed in conjunction with the summit.

These MoUs will be signed with different coastal states and stakeholders of the sector.
