Prime Minister Narendra Modi will host a dinner in Gandhinagar for the heads of states of Denmark, Czech Republic, Uzbekistan, Malta and Rwanda, who are expected to attend the biannual Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, which begins on January 18.
According to the state government, 15 countries have officially come on board as partners for the 9th edition of the investor summit. This year’s event will also see 11 international organisations participating in the event. Further, around 22 countries, including Germany, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Denmark, the Netherlands and Australia, will be represented at the event with their own seminars and pavilions.
On Friday, Gujarat chief secretary JN Singh told reporters the Prime Minister would also hold an exclusive round table interaction with the heads of sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and institutional investors, during the event. “The aim of the session is to get these funds to become an integral part of investment for the state and national infrastructure needs,” Singh said. “This round table will provide a platform for detailed deliberations between heads of global funds with the Prime Minister, finance minister and chief minister of Gujarat, along with other important government dignitaries on opportunities in India and Gujarat,” said Singh.
