Need for developing Tuticorin Port stressed

The Tuticorin Port should be developed in order to promote ‘cruise’ tourism, said Tuticorin Port Trust (TPT) Chairman N K Raghupathy.

Speaking at the CII’s ‘SPEED 2006’ conference on ‘Development of cruise tourism and air connectivity in southern districts of Tamil Nadu’, he said the Tuticorin port, which had ‘‘better facilities than Panama’’, would be able to attract more cruise ships carrying tourists if road links to places of tourist importance like Rameswaram and Kanyakumari were developed.

The port, he said, had all advantages like a clear water harbour and clean berths and was ideally located, providing an ingress to South Tamil Nadu.
