“EXCON is happening at a time when our economy is on the path of transition towards a ‘New India’ and there is renewed confidence among industry players on the revival of economy against the backdrop of robust policy measures and major thrust on infrastructure development by the Government of India”, said Mr Deepak Shetty, Chairman, Excon 2021 & Managing Director, JCB India Limited. With major announcements in the Union Budget this year including the construction of 25,000 km additional national highways, EXCON will play an important role in the adoption of world class technologies for speedy implementation of infrastructure projects in the country, he added.

He further said that, with sustainability and environment being the major concerns, the Government and industry are together taking measures and innovative steps to ensure a sustainable and eco-friendly development of the Country’s infrastructure.
