Support by Ministries
Located in Gurgaon / Delhi bauma CONEXPO INDIA reaches the part of the country that is of strategic importance as Delhi is the decision-making center of the Indian economy.
bauma CONEXPO INDIA gets official support from the Government of India. We are honored that the Ministry of Heavy Industry and the Ministry of Housing have sent their declaration of support.
Statement of Minister M.Venkaiah Naidu
Construction is an important sector that contributes to economic growth of a nation. Apart from enhancing income, this sector also contributes greatly to employment generation.
While constructing the physical infrastructure in any city, it becomes critical to use innovative technologies which are disaster resilient and leads to expeditious creation of safe and durable assets. Hence, technology occupies a central space in any construction activity.
The Government of India has introduced 3 major initiatives, namely, Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Smart Cities and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) to improve the quality of life of residents living in urban areas and also to provide houses with basic services, improved infrastructure and necessary amenities. To take these Missions forward, significant construction activities are envisaged which again call for large deployment of construction machinery and equipment in the country.
I am happy that American Association AEM (Association of Equipment Manufacturers) and German Exhibition organizer Messe Muenchen are organizing bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2016 in Gurgaon, Haryana which would provide a professional platform for networking, investment and exchange of ideas and information among representatives of different countries on latest construction machinery, building materials, machines and mining machines and construction vehicles.
I wish the event success and hope the Indian construction agencies, Government organizations and other Stakeholders will utilize this opportunity to enrich their knowledge on lastest construction machinery and equipment which lead to further innovations in the construction industry.
