Effective use of web enabled technology to enhance user experience of delegates

More than 2700 people downloaded Vibrant Gujarat Mobile apps on BlackBerry, Android and iOS platforms

Gandhinagar, January 4, 2013: Effective web management has provided fillip to the efforts of Industries department to mobilise delegates’ registration for the upcoming Vibrant Gujarat Summit. Using the website www.vibrantgujarat.com and robust backend IT infrastructure created to support it; the department has done entire program management, entire content management and summit registration, delegate registration and B2G and B2B meetings facilitation process. Due to such facilities, the online registration for the 2013 summit has increased manifold and looking into the overwhelming response, the government closed the online registration as on 1st January, 2013. As on date, more than 350 B2G meetings and around 4200 B2B meetings have been facilitated using this platform for the upcoming summit.

The government has also managed the entire process of exhibition registration and inquiry management system using the web. The investment intentions and strategic partner management, providing relevant information to international investors through country desks using web platform are some of the important tasks managed using the web based technology.

Briefing the media about the use of technology during the summit, Mr Maheshwar Sahu, IAS, Principal Secretary, Industries and Mines Department, Government of Gujarat said, “In this day and age, technology is a great enabler and we have to take advantage of it. We have taken strong measures to provide best user experience to the participations with the help of technology to enable them to take complete control of their time before and during the summit. Today, Gujarat has gained recognition as a global business hub and such initiatives help us strengthen that position.

Mahatma Mandir is going to be completely Wi-Fi enabled venue allowing users to access high-speed internet on their notebooks, tablets and smartphones.

This year’s Vibrant Gujarat Summit would provide a digitally enhanced user experience to all the participating delegates and others attending the summit. Use of modern technology would allow delegates more interactivity and provide flexibility to plan their meetings at the summit with other delegates as well as government officials. Mobile Apps available on various smartphone platforms would allow them to have complete information about happenings at the summit such as seminars, discussion forums, exhibition and venue & parking maps etc. on their fingertips. This app would have GPS and Wi-Fi enabled map feature that would allow users to know their current location and how to go to the next location they want to go.

Once registered on the Vibrant Gujarat site, users can:

  • Browse and find information for every event through tickers, newsflashes periodic newsletters and through ‘Country desks’
  • Receive personalized information as per his/her area of interest including ‘Exhibition registration’
  • Gain access to information and schedule of various events beforehand and decide which one to attend by just a click of the mouse
  • Request for meeting of management and other delegates (including Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Government (B2G) meeting requests), through a simple show of interest. User instantly receive the acknowledgement by the system and then by the respective department. Subsequently, user shall receive the appointment details via e-mail
The Vibrant Gujarat website also allows users to download smartphone based mobile applications allowing users to have a complete control on their fingertips. While attending the summit, a user can instantly fix up a meeting or want to know more about a particular subject, he or she just needs to go to their profile in the app, check the event they want to attend or department they want to contact and ‘press’ submit. Rest will be taken care by the technology.

Apart from this, there is another major initiative to help investors. In the year 2011, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat launched the ‘Investor Facilitation Portal’ aimed at providing a single window facilitation mechanism for investors. Managed by the Industries Commissioner, the portal is an effective medium of information for investors on government policies, incentive schemes and the availability of infrastructure. The portal over the last two years has provided a thrust to the investment facilitation in the State.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
