Gandhinagar, January 7, 2013: With large number of participants registering from more than 105 countries, the Vibrant Gujarat will set a new benchmark with a landmark achievement of having diplomats, industrialists, academia and thinkers from so many countries converge around subjects of sustainability, innovation, youth & skill development, knowledge sharing and networking.

More than 1800 foreign delegates are expected to attend the Summit this year, higher than last year’s participation of 1400 delegates from 101 countries. From India, 22 states are participating in various capacities and around 50,000 delegates from India will be attending the summit. Large delegations consisting of senior business leaders and diplomats from Canada, Japan, USA, United Kingdom and the UAE are marking their presence at Vibrant Gujarat.

Some of the countries with a higher rate of participation include Sweden, Finland, Italy, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Israel, Poland, Russia, Morocco, Nigeria, Algeria, Somalia, Australia, Thailand and Yunan.

Briefing the media on salient features of the global and Indian participation, Shri Maheshwar Sahu, IAS, Principal Secretary, Industries and Mines, Government of Gujarat said, “Looking at the enthusiastic participation by so many Indian and international delegates, we are confident of providing a platform for them to engage in a meaningful dialogue around focus areas of the summit, share their knowledge with each other and form strategic partnerships, not only for their own development but also for development of the state, the country and the world.”
