Gujarat Government will extend all necessary support, he assured.

Shri. Narendra Modi inaugurated the second phase of German company SIEMENS' Steam Turbine and Compressor manufacturing factory in Vadodara on Tuesday .The factory will manufacture Steam Turbine up to 150 MW and compressors for the domestic and other emerging markets in the state. The company has invested Rs. 275 crore for the expansion of its second phase in Vadodara. Central Gujarat will be the hub of enery and engineering manufacturing sector in India, shri Modi said.

Gujarat will lead the country in the present century with its three pillar economic development, he said.
