GeoAsia 2016 – 6th Asian Regional Conference on Geosynthetics
GEOSYNTHETICS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT
The Indian Chapter had the honour of hosting the First Asian Regional Conference on Geosynthetics in November 1997 in Bangalore. After the successful series of Asian Regional Conferences in Kuala Lumpur (2000), Seoul (2004), Shanghai (2008) and Bangkok (2012), it is back to India in 2016. India is a fast developing economy requiring large scale infrastructures. Liberalization of economy has further facilitated planning and execution of many large scale infrastructures, including roads, railways, power and water resources, which will further promote applications of Geosynthetics for infrastructural works. Spending in XII Plan (2012-17) in infrastructure is estimated to be USD 01 Trillion, which is excepted to grow for infrastructure activities for the XIII Plan (2017-2022).
6th Asian Regional Conference – “Geosynthetics Asia 2016” would be a step towards providing opportunity for
exchange of experiences, practices and collaborations to facilitate flow of appropriate technology to enable successful implementation of infrastructure projects.
