Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive in Kerala tomorrow to lay the foundation stone and dedicate various development projects to the nation at Kochi.
PM Modi will inaugurate a slew of infrastructure projects in Kerala that will further catalyse industrial growth and boost economic development in the State.
The Prime Minister will dedicate the Propylene Derivative Petrochemical Project (PDPP) of BPCL to the nation. It will produce Acrylates, Acrylic Acid and Oxo-Alcohol, which are at present predominantly imported, and is expected to result in saving of about Rs.3700 to 4000 crore per annum in foreign exchange.
“Kochi refinery’s state-of-the-art Propylene Derivate Petrochemical Project, which will be dedicated to the nation tomorrow, will reduce India’s dependence on import of niche petrochemicals, encourage downstream petrochemical industries in the region and create jobs for the youth,” Pradhan said.
Elaborate arrangements are made in the city to welcome the Prime Minister. Police have banned the flying of drones in the city limits in view of the security arrangements during the PM's visit.
