The Indian government is betting big with simultaneously building a massive high speed freight corridor between Delhi & Mumbai as well the physical infrastructure for 24 new cities that will become an industrial corridor.
Reporter Jason Overdorf talks with the man who is tasked with implementing the plan, "super-bureaucrat" Amitabh Kant:
"This in many ways marks a paradigm shift in India's thinking on infrastructure," Kant said in an interview with GlobalPost. "It marks
a paradigm shift in India's thinking on manufacturing. It marks a paradigm shift in India's thinking on urbanization."
A new high-speed rail line will be at the center of the plan, connecting the cities into a corridor of industry.
