The Union Home Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Mr. Nitin Jairam Gadkari and the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Mr. Hansraj Gangaram Ahir were thanked by The Andaman Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the entire business community of Andaman and Nicobar Islands especially the business community of the North and Middle Andaman for materialising the long pending  developmental initiatives of these Islands. Among the pending works initiated after their visit included the extension of Wharf at Hope Town, construction  of additional approach jetty, extension of berthing jetty and Dredging jetty front of Neil Island, extension of existing Dock at Port Blair, laying foundation stone for construction of bridges over Humphrey Strait and Middle Strait at Baratang and up gradation of NH4 at Diglipur, which are some of the largest infrastructure projects initiated by the GOI in these Islands since independence. Once completed, they will give a boost to the tourism Industry and ensure more and more tourists visit our emerald islands, further leading to better job opportunities. The cumulative impact will bring about all round growth and the Chamber would like to place on record this infrastructure thrust was possible due to the vision of our Prime Minister of India.
