Chief Minister Narendra Modi today exuded confidence that the Gujaratis who had established Gujarat's unique identity in the state's development would soon unleash their competence and proficiency at the global stage, too.

Addressing a World Conference of Non-Resident Gujaratis' (NRGs) at the Mahatma Mandir here, he said that even as Gujarat's yearlong golden jubilee celebration comes to an end, begins the state's new golden age. The celebration also helped each Gujarati put forward his best foot forward. It is being attended by nearly 3,000 NRGs from different states of India and abroad.

He asked every Gujarati family to bring at least five Non-Gujarati families on the tour of Gujarat to accelerate the tourism activities in the state.

Tourism and NRG department Minister Jaynarayan Vyas said in his welcome address that Gujaratis living in 18 states of India and 12 nations organized various programmes to celebrate the golden jubilee year of Gujarat. “In industrial development, Gujarat has reached on top from the eighth position in the past. Electricity is made available to all the villages of Gujarat during last decade and Narmda water is now being supplied to the areas of Kutch and Saurastra”, he said.

Gujarat's agro production has increased from Rs.10,000-cr to Rs.50,000-cr, while one tenth of total milk in India is produced in Gujarat only, Mr. Vyas said.

‘Gujarat Global' – a coffee table book was released by Chief Minister on the occasion.

Chief Minister unveiled a silver coin which was brought out by Gujaratis living in America with a view to chip in to the making of world's tallest statue of Sardar Patel – ‘Statue of Unity' – in Gujarat.

Gujarat Assembly Speaker Ganpat Vasava, MP Purshottam Rupala, Cabinet members, Assembly Whip Pankaj Desai, Chief Secretary A.K.Joti, IAS officers, NRGs and people in large number were present on the occasion.
