India Shipping Report

BMI View: The primary issue in Indian shipping continues to be the state of the nation's ports. Investment in the 12 major state-run facilities has not kept up with the demand engendered by rapid economic growth experienced in India over the past decade. This is leading to repeated issues of congestion at port s. I nvestment is now starting to be made, but t his may be a case of too little too late. Further more , plans to push ahead with the privatisation of the state-run facilities risk mass strikes in the sector in the coming years . An agreement was reached between the government and the port workers in March which averted a general strike, but the risk remains as privatisation plans move forward. Although we believe the move is necessary in order to compete in the long-run, in the short term the privatisation will likely see throughput lost to private ports.
