“Earlier most of our cleaning systems were man-powered, now everything has become technology based, even the solutions and chemicals which applied has made our work easier. Being a service industry, our challenge is to upkeep our terminal, so our passengers feel satisfied. Our interest is to compete with the best standards, state-of the- art facilities and whatever is available in the global market. It is a wonderful event and we will be visiting in the future too.”
