The Inception and The Evolution
Vibrant Gujarat Summit as an idea was conceptualized in 2003 by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the then Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat, Mr. Narendra Modi. His primary goal was to re-establish Gujarat as a preferred investment destination within India.
Today, the Summit has completely transformed itself into a platform for brainstorming on agendas of global socio-economic development. It has also evolved itself as a stage for knowledge sharing and forging effective partnerships.
The 8th Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, held in January 2017, witnessed participation from 25,000+ delegates from 100+ countries, including 4 Heads of States, Nobel Laureates, Captains of global industry and Thought Leaders.
This participation increased exponentially in the 9th Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, held in 18th- 20th January 2019, where the response received from all over the country was overwhelming. There were 42,526 registered delegates, 285 registered delegations, and 26,893 registered company.
The amalgamation of such prominent personalities to discuss on the future of MSMEs in India will enable the businesses to comprehend the future course that can be expected, and plan accordingly to experience the best out of the evolving environment.
