Economy Drivers ß Amreli is emerging as a hub for port-based, minerals, engineering and cement industries

ß Amreli is emerging as a hub for port-based, minerals, engineering and cement industries

ß The development of Pipavav port to handle Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and developed port

infrastructure of handling 22 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of general cargo and

containerised cargo has made it a gateway port. The port facility present at Pipavav would help in

attracting investments in the future as well

ß Emergence of an LPG terminal, several new power projects and captive jetty industries in Pipavav by

industries such as GSPC, Torrent Power, Ultratech Limited and Videocon are expected to further fuel

the economic growth of the district

ß Rise of new sectors in the district, such as electrical equipments, engineering, and infrastructure

projects during 1998-07 has led to the development of Amreli as a thriving industrial belt

ß The Government of Gujarat has started a road project connecting Pipavav to Ahmedabad directly. This

is expected to boost the commercial activity and easy movement of logistics in the district, due to the

proximity of Ahmedabad with Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC)
