This Business Mission will coincide with the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2017 that will be held from the 10th – 13th January 2017 at Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar, Gujarat. This global Summit, since its inception in 2003, has established itself as the biggest international business event of India. It is a visionary approach towards inclusive development by ensuring policy driven governance and effective business promotion. This serves as a platform for SMEs to connect with potential partners to explore opportunities of collaboration and partnership as well as providing networking forums to foster interaction between stakeholders through B2B and B2G meetings. The Biennial summit is now a unique forum for exploring investment opportunities, sharing knowledge and networking while address the current challenges facing India. This summit will bring together Heads of states and government, policymakers, corporate leaders, intellectuals and experts across the world to further investments and promote economic cooperation.

Gujarat, situated in a geographically strategic location offers excellent connectivity as well as acting as a gateway to the northern and central markets of India. With its manufacturing sector contributing over 25% to the state GSDP, a robust base of large scale industries with over 2 million SMEs employing up to 15 million people, Gujarat contributes up to 7.14% of India’s GDP, 19% of India’s industrial output and exports and is a pioneer in harnessing clean energy. Gujarat is a national leader in 15 manufacturing sectors and is consistently ranked among the top achievers with several firsts in its achievements, being the state with the largest producer of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, salt, soda ash and marine products. It has the highest number of ports handling over 40% of India’s cargo and has one of the largest investment projects in solar, wind power and bio gas generation.

Why India
India is now poised to emerge as a leading global economy with average GDP growth of 7.9% for the last 10 years (FY04 to FY13). The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, formerly Chief Minister of Gujarat has injected a new sense of confidence into the economy and the nation is on a fast track of growth under his stewardship. With manufacturing as the government’s key focus, the 'Make in India' initiative is expected to be a vital component in India's quest for achieving wholesome economic development. Policies and incentives are being liberalised for foreign companies to operate in India and with a population of more than 1.2 billion, India’s total working-age population is poised to rise from 749 million to 962 million, accounting for about 28% of the increase in the world’s total working-age population by 2030, thus providing an abundant pool of working force population and an enormous consumer market. India is expected to be the next growth destination, ranking amongst the world’s most attractive investment destinations as well as fastest growing economies. Therefore we strongly urge you to take this opportunity and start exploring the immense resources and potential the India market can offer for your business growth and expansion plans.
