“With the new government at the Centre, we are hopeful that the stagnating economy will get a new direction which will also give the infrastructure sector the necessary boost. With 25 years’ experience in the sector, even though the economy has been experiencing a slowdown, we are in a state of preparedness to grow our business and enhance shareholder value as soon as we see the first sign of growth. However, the year under review was stressful for the infrastructure sector and our focus has been on managing our portfolio while mitigating risks. We also expect to divest some of our investments in the near future with the outlook becoming better,” Hemant Kanoria, chairman and managing director, Srei Infrastructure Finance Limited, said.
