Gandhinagar, Tuesday: Passenger car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki Limited top brass here today expressed intent to set up its another plant in Gujarat on a 500-acre plot with a capacity to produce 10-lakh cars per annum with provisions to produce 20-lakh cars per annum in the second phase depending on the global demands.

MSL chairman R.C. Bhargav and managing director Shinzo Nakanishi during their discussion with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said that Gujarat is their first preference for the company's expansion projects, as the state's long coastline offered excellent car export facility.

Both expressed satisfaction with the outcome of today's talk. They praised the Gujarat Government's and Mr. Modi's positive approach.

They hoped the location of the site and other formalities for the phase-1 of the project could be completed in three months and it can be ready in five years. It can create direct employment potential for 1.50-lakh people. They showed willingness to set up skill development centre in the car manufacturing sector and vendors' park in the state, too.

Others present during the discussion were Chief Minister's Principal Secretary K. Kailashnathan, Principal Industries Secretary M. Sahu and other senior officers.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard. 

PM will participate in the final day of the G7 Summit tomorrow and will speak in two Sessions.
