Speaking on the announcement of the 6th edition of Concrete Show India, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, "There has been a significant push from the government in the infrastructure sector as seen from the Union Budget FY18-19. It also recommended the promotion of affordable housing with the establishment of a dedicated affordable housing fund (AHF) in the National Housing Bank. This drive has provided a huge potential for stakeholders in the sector. From roadways, railways to airports and other smart-city initiatives, the last few years have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the sector, leading to world-class facilities coming up across the country. Also, the Indian government's move to cut GST rates on construction equipment from 28 per cent to18 per cent has resulted in unprecedented demand in India over the last few months. Against this landscape, we at UBM India firmly believe that The Concrete Show India 2018 will prove to be a channel to the opportunities existing in India's rapidly growing concrete market."

Concrete Show India coincides at a time when the infrastructure sector is enjoying intense focus from Government for initiating policies that aims to ensure time-bound creation of world class infrastructure in the country. A number of policies initiated by the Central Government have ensured that India is on the path of creating world class infrastructure facilities in the country. For instance, in a massive infrastructure push, the government recently approved a mega plan to build 83,677 km of highways by March 2022 at a cost of about Rs 7 lakh crore, which includes the ambitious Bharatmala project. 34,800 km of highways will be constructed at the cost of Rs 5.35 lakh crore under the Phase-1 of Bharatmala project. Projects such as these will be a major driver for economic growth in the country, and help realise our Prime Minister's vision of a 'New India.'

The event has been well-received by the industry with support from key organisations and Associations such as Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), Indian Chapter of American Concrete Institute (ICACI), Singapore Concrete Institute (SCI), Tunnelling Association of India (TAI) and US-India Importers' Council (USIIC).
