Business-friendly Gujarat appeals to US firms
An outpouring of support from US business community came at two events in New York and Washington hosted by the US India Business Council (USIBC), the official 'Partner Organisation' to the Vibrant Gujarat 2013 Summit, to meet a high-level 17-member delegation of government officials and business leaders from the state.
Led by D.J. Pandian, Gujarat's principal secretary, energy & petrochemicals, the delegation's prime focus during the three day visit this week was to strengthen trade ties between the US and Gujarat in energy, finance, pharmaceuticals and education sector.
"Our companies are enthusiastic about the investment opportunities in Gujarat," said Diane Farrell, Senior Director and Executive Vice President of USIBC.
"The progressive, investor-friendly environment was made apparent by the delegation and we look forward to Vibrant Gujarat 2013," to be held in Gandhinagar January 11-13, he said.
