New Delhi: The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, dedicated Pipavav Shipyard to the nation today. He congratulated Nikhil Gandhi, the management and staff of the Pipavav Shipyard.

"The Shipbuilding industry can have a multiplier effect on economic output and also in terms of its contribution to the generation of employment. The Government of India has therefore been supporting the setting up of shipyards,"  the Prime Minister said.

"I understand the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council is working with the Ministry of Shipping to explore fresh ways to enable faster growth of this dynamic sector. In addition, we intend to take measures to greatly expand inland water transport," Dr. Manmohan Singh said.

"This shipyard has been developed to have one of the largest dry dock and wet dock facilities in the world, with the state-of-the-art technology which can be used for construction of vessels relating to oil, gas and defence sectors. I hope this modern facility will set new benchmarks in quality and efficiency for our country," he said.

"I understand that the Pipavav Shipyard, which has been set up on the Saurashtra coast of Gujarat, is one of the most modern shipyards in India and I note the commitment of the management to provide our country with the best available shipyards anywhere in the world and I compliment you for this commitment," Dr. Singh said.
