He welcomed the initiatives taken by the Port Grand and assured support in coming new ventures as well. The ceremony was attended by the top management officials of KPT and Port Grand besides other dignitaries.

Port Grand President Shahid Feroze informed the KPT chairman that these Eco Tours will be conducted on speed boats which are from the top of the line, Bayliner series, and are being imported from the US. The boats are part of the Port Grand cruises and under this project, various other brands of cruises will be launched one by one.
