With its theme “Shaping of a new India” the ninth edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2019, starts
in Gujarat. Besides the business focus on issues like investment, trade, innovation, skills and
technology, the summit has a few other novelties, like the Africa Day to highlight the historical
connections between Africa and Gujarat. Around 20,000 delegations are expected to take part in the
event. The event will also focus on promoting startups and the IT sector in the region. One of the
main highlights of this edition is the famed Bullet train project to connect Ahmedabad with Mumbai,
the first high speed line in the country that is being built by the Japanese and which is expected to
be operational by mid-2022. The state will not just showcase its pet project but will also highlight the
recently inaugurated Statue of Unity the world’s tallest statue honouring India’s first deputy, prime
minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
