Highlighting the growth of Gujarat, Ambani said, “If you have not visited Gujarat, you are stupid. It is the fastest growing state. I am fortunate to have a car company in Gujarat.” Ambani credited  Narendra Modi for the transformation in Gujarat and said that, “History will record you PM Modi as a great transformative leader.” He said that by diwali, entire Gujarat will be covered by Jio 4G.

CEO of Suzuki Motors, Toshiro Suzuki, shared his plan to expand the capacity of its plant in Gujarat.


Addressing the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, PM Modi told global investors that India stands for 3Ds – Democracy, Demography and Demand.

He said that Gujarat represents the business spirit of India while also terming Gujarat as the land of Mahatama Gandhi and Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel. “Over the last two and a half years, we have also evolved a culture of healthy competition among states which are being rated on the parameter of good governance” he said.


On the sidelines of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit in Gandhinagar, PM Modi met various delegates from various nations as well as the Fortune 500 CEOs including John Chambers of CISCO.
