Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive in Goa on Sunday on a brief visit to lay foundation for two major infrastructure projects, a greenfield airport at the Mopa plateau and an electronic city in Tuem, both located in North Goa’s Pernem sub-district.

Modi during his three-hour visit to the BJP-ruled state, will also deliver a speech at a function organised by the state government at the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee indoor stadium, on the outskirts of the state capital, from where he will remotely lay the foundation stone for the two projects.

This is Modi’s second visit to the state in two months; he hosted the BRICS summit in October this year.

Of the two projects being kick-started by Modi, the Mopa airport is Goa’s first civilian airport and is being developed by GMR Airports and the electronic city is expected to host manufacturing units for electronics components, envisaged under the Make in India scheme.

After delivering his address in Goa, Modi is expected to head for Pune, where is scheduled to inaugurate a four-day international conference and exhibition on enhancing the sugarcane value chain.
