Madurai-Tuticorin industrial corridor in Tamil Nadu comprises of seven southern districts: Madurai, Virudhunagar, Ramanathapuram, Tirunelveli, Sivagangai, Tuticorin and Kanniyakumari. The corridor is well connected by road and railways. The upcoming new railway line from Madurai to Tuticorin via Aruppukotai, Ettayapuram would serve as the backbone for the development of this corridor. Madurai Tuticorin Airports aid air-connectivity to major cities across India. Tuticorin port is one of the 10 major ports in India. Kolachel, Kanniyakumari, Rameswaram are other minor ports and fishing harbors.
Diverse industry base is evidenced in this corridor with different industrial clusters and key industries such as textiles, rubber, auto, printing and port-based activities. Madurai is a key hub for manufacturing and Tuticorin emerges as a key export-cum-services hub. This corridor consists of four manufacturing regions, one agri-business region, two business investment regions, a special tourism zone, one rural tourism hub and one knowledge hub. Tamil Nadu Government formed a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) and estimates that this corridor would attract 1,90,000 crore industrial investment over a period of 10 years.
Despite all these recent developments, lack of shared understanding among academia and industries within and outside the corridor, with regard to existing infrastructure, resources, diverse industry base and scope for innovation and industrialization of this region, proved a major hindrance for optimum utilization of existing resources and rapid industrialization of this region. With a view to bring-in diverse stakeholders within and outside the corridor for a detailed dialogue in setting up new enterprises and generate more employment options in this region, CII Madurai Zone proudly presents its first edition of “TECH EXPO-2015” on 11th
12th December between 1000 hrs and 1730 hrs at Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.
