Through Kowa India Pvt. Ltd., our locally incorporated company in India, we are building up business infrastructure in the region. In particular, we put a high priority on inviting companies to the Mundra Special Economic Zone in Gujarat State*1, which the Adani Group*2, one of the leading conglomerates in India, has been developing.


Proprietor of business:

Mundra in Kachchh district of Gujarat State
Area to be developed:
More than 15,000 ha (planned)

Favorably located in Gujarat State, the Mundra Special Economic Zone is directly connected to the target area of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC*3), a large-scale infrastructure project in which the Government of India is developing large industrial zones connecting New Delhi, the national capital, with Mumbai, the commercial capital, by a transportation corridor.

In addition, with the geographical benefit of being located on the west coast of India with Mundra Port, developed by the Adani Group, as a gateway for export to the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, it is an ideal location.

Furthermore, a power plant under the direct management of the Adani Group lies adjacent to the Mundra Special Economic Zone, creating an excellent environment in terms of energy logistics for business development in India.


It is accessible from Delhi by highway via Ahmedabad by rail or air, and from Mumbai by land via Bhuj by air.


Via Ahmedabad
Delhi ⇒ Ahmedabad 1.5 hours by air
Ahmedabad ⇒ Mundra 6 hours by car

Electricity, waterworks, roads, and information and communication networks are well established, and the residential district is fully equipped with medical institutions, parks, community centers, and also various educational institutions.


Situated at three locations, south, east and west, the ports enable efficient logistics with the use of a private airport. In addition, the power plant located in the Special Economic Zone ensures an excellent energy environment. The residential area is located very conveniently in the central part.
