US pledges to develop cold storage sites in India

New Delhi, India: A director of the US Trade and Development Agency has said that developing cold storage facilities to strengthen food security in India is a priority for the US.

USTDA director Leocadia I Zak, who is a member of the delegation led by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said that the agency was funding 100 priority development projects in the country, including in infrastructure and energy sectors.

“We are engaged in many projects here, including energy, infrastructure but cold chain storage remains one of the main priorities,” Zak said at an industry event.

Robert D Hormats, under secretary for economic, energy and agricultural affairs, echoed his cry. “Cold storage facilities are very important for strengthening India’s food security. Even Prime Minister Singh in his meeting with President Obama emphasised on the importance of such facilities,” Hormats said.

Currently, the USTDA provides $31m to fund various projects in the fields of environment, energy, infrastructure, aviation and information and communication.
