New Delhi: The National Logistics Policy was an important step towards the “making of a developed India”, and the policy has come with a “new energy for every sector”, said
Prime Minister Narendra Modi while launching the policy in Delhi Saturday.
The Prime Minister, who turned 72 Saturday, also said the National Logistics Policy had “not come out of the blue” and that there were “eight years of hard work behind it”.
One of the major objectives of the logistics policy is to bring down the logistic costs and improve the competitiveness of domestic goods in the global market.
PM Modi termed the policy a solution for many problems and said that it would lead to improvements of “all our systems”.
“There has been a constant effort to find solutions for fast last-mile delivery, resolution of transportation-related challenges, for saving time and money of our manufacturers and industries, all these subjects,” said Modi.
