"Government will bring aviation sector this time into multi-modal hubs as it has huge potential in the logistic sector also," road transport, highways and shipping minister Gadkari said at a curtain-raiser event on India's first Integrated Transport and Logistic Summit on May 3-5. The summit is expected to attract investments to the tune of Rs 50,000 crore, he said.
