India is expected to launch a cargo ferry between Kochi in Kerala and Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu with the Maldivian capital Male in the third week of September, according to a report published by the Hindustan Times. The report goes on to say that the Indian High Commission in the Maldives said in a tweet on Thursday that a ship from the Shipping Corporation of India that can carry 200 TEU or containers and 3000 tons of general cargo will initially be used for the service. According to the report, the tweet reads: “Sea connectivity for wealth! A direct 'Cargo Ferry Service' connecting # Kochi / # Tuticorin with # Malé will be canceled in the 3rd week of September [from India]. “The service has been described as a step towards fulfilling the promise Narendra Modi made while visiting the Maldives in 2019. According to Indian officials, the initiative aims to revolutionize bilateral trade between the two countries. Foreign Minister S Jaishankar discussed the start of the service during a virtual meeting with his Maldivian counterpart, Abdulla Shahid, on August 13th. The Hindustan Times recalled that at the same meeting, India pledged a $ 500 million aid package to establish connectivity between the Maldivian capital, Male, and three islands. India has also funded $ 250 million to help the island nation fight the COVID19 pandemic.
