Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani held a roadshow in Mumbai on November 26, for the ninth edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2019. Speaking at the event, he said, “Vibrant Gujarat has contributed greatly to the the overall growth of the State. The summit was originally conceptualised to rope in investments and build Gujarat's image as a business friendly destination. Today, it has grown into a knowledge sharing platform, where world leaders deliberate on pressing global issues. The summit allows not just Gujarat but other States also to come together and position India as a lucrative investment destination.”
Addressing the attendees of the event, the CM said, “Vibrant Gujarat Summit in earlier editions laid stress on investment and cash flow in Gujarat but now this platform will talk about and find solutions for global issues and challenges. We will also ponder the opportunities available in the world.” He added, “The ninth edition of the event will be based on the themes of new India, new investment, new technology and the whole world will see the new technologies for the very first time. We are also aiming to bring happiness to all. Be it a poor person or rich, we wish to see a smile on every face.” For the 2019 summit, Gujarat has partnered with Canada, Denmark, Japan, France, Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, Czech Republic and Uzbekistan.
Rupani also said that Gujarat and Maharashtra are sister states, which were separated in 1960 from one state entity, and stated that his government had initiated the online permission for non-agriculture title for land in urban areas. He also announced that his government would bring the same system into force for rural areas as well.
On the sidelines of the summit, Rupani also met with leading industrialists and heads, like N Chandrasekaran, Kumar Mangalam Birla, Harsh Goenka, Niranjan Hiranandani, BK Goenka, Adi Godrej, Anand Mahindra, and Raoul Bajaj.
