Maharashtra signs pact with South Korea for infrastructure projects

"This MoU is to help with implementation strategy, legal systems, policies, technologies and information in infrastructure development," a release from the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) said.

The Maharashtra government signed an MoU with South Korea for increased co-operation in infrastructure projects like development of smart cities, roads, airports and metros on the first day of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' visit to that country.

"This MoU is to help with implementation strategy, legal systems, policies, technologies and information in infrastructure development," a release from the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) said.

Fadnavis today embarked on a three-day tour to South Korea and Singapore.

"Had a very good meeting with Kim Hyunmee, Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) in Seoul. Informed Minister Hyunmee about Maharashtra's growth story, especially how it got 50 per cent of the total FDI in India and how we lead in infrastructure projects," the release quoted Fadnavis as saying.

He said the Maharashtra government wanted to invite South Korean companies to be a part of the state's development journey by investing here.

Fadnavis said Hyunmee and her team displayed immense interest in the state's 'Samruddhi' corridor project, which envisages building a 700-km super express highway connecting Mumbai to Nagpur.
