Gujarat on Wednesday held a roadshow in Kolkata to attract investment from the industrialists based in the city.
Gujarat is holding its 10th edition of Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit (VGGS) from January 10 to 12, 2022. West Bengal on the other hand hold its own investment summit, Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) in April next year.
A high-level government delegation led by Jagdish Panchal, Gujarat minister of State for Industries, met leaders of the industry in the state.

The VGGS was conceptualized in 2003 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was then the Gujarat chief minister.
Gujarat’s focus on building robust industrial infrastructure, including roads, ports, airports, power, and gas has helped it stay on the top of the chart in the Logistics Ease Across Different States in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

To create an enabling environment, the state government has launched policies and schemes incentivising investors for future growth, including the Industrial Policy 2020, Integrated Logistics and Logistics Park Policy, Electric Vehicle Policy, Solar Energy Policy and Tourism and Textiles policy, 2021.” The officials updated the investors of the proposed mega projects, including prospects and opportunities for the investors to ride on the growth story of the state.
