The Indo-Norwegian Project included a boat-building yard and a marine engineering workshop and included attempts to improve the condition of the local population through an extensive health and drinking water programme. This photograph displays the interior of the boat-building yard, with workers constructing the frame of a small trawl vessel. A Norwegian supervisor stands to the left.
