Ahead of the prestigious Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2017 with the theme of ‘Connecting India to World’, the Vibrant Gujarat delegation visit featured various meetings and networking events, aimed at strengthening the cause of development in Gujarat, and promoting cooperation of Singapore and Gujarat businesses.   

The delegation led by Mr. Ashwini Kumar, Secretary to Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat met representatives of the Governments of Singapore along with various industry leaders and academicians from multiple sectors. The delegates discussed some of the investor friendly policies, the favorable economic ecosystem and seamless approval procedures that Gujarat offers, making it one of the most sought after investment destinations globally. Gujarat was also ranked number 1 in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ in 2015 amongst all states of India in a joint study by the Government of India and World Bank. The Key focus sectors of the delegation were Electronics Manufacturing, Financial Services and Smart City Development 

Speaking on the delegation’s visit to Singapore, Mr. Ashwini Kumar said, “We view this as a good opportunity to tap the synergies between the nations and foster closer economic, trade and investment relations between India and Singapore.”

A Roadshow was held on 12th October at the Ritz Carlton Hotel to promote Vibrant Gujarat 2017 organized by the Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS) and The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). The event was supported by the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF).

Ambassador Gopinath Pillai, Chairman ISAS in his opening address said the Summit marks one of the earliest external outreach programs by an Indian state for connecting to a global audience of investors, entrepreneurs and businesses. Over the years, it has become an important platform for showcasing the state of Gujarat’s strengths in infrastructure, business and human resource. 

In his address, Mr. Douglas Foo, President SMF declared that personally, Gujarat holds a special significance for him as he started his first business in Gujarat and from the experience he gained, he has leveraged on Gujarat’s connections for his business till today. He announced that SMF will be arranging a business mission to Gujarat in January 2017, in support of the annual summit.

H.E. Mrs. Vijay Thakur Singh in her address said "With the reform-driven government at the Centre led by Hon'ble PM Narendra Modi, India is on a path of strong economic growth and transformation. I would therefore impress upon the businesses and industry in Singapore to join the growth story being witnessed in India and Gujarat in particular and reap the dividends sooner rather than later."

The meeting was then given a detailed presentation on business opportunities in Gujarat.
