I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Shri Narendrabhai and his Government for building on the momentum gained over the previous five events.
Every year, the summit is getting stronger, larger and more vibrant.

Many of the State's dedicated administrators are with us here at this event.
I compliment them for Gujarat's growing exemplary achievements.
In Shri Narendrabhai, we have a leader with a grand vision and the determination to translate his vision into reality.
My sincere congratulations to Honorable CM Shri Narendrabhai for this.
I have been present every single Vibrant Gujarat Summit since its inception a 100 % attendance.
This signifies Reliance's commitment to the state of Gujarat.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Reliance is a Gujarati company.
It is an Indian company
And it is a global company.
That is now it was conceived by my father, Shri Dhirubhai Ambani.
Gujarat has always been one of the pre-eminent regions of India.
It is a land that has transformed opportunities and challenges into a powerful entrepreneurial vision.
Gujarat has been a pioneer state.
Whether it is in the field of cooperative movement or in taking initiative of privatizing infrastructure facilities like ports and so on.
It gives Gujarat an innate advantage as an investment destination.
This is not an isolated event but a sustained process evident even today.
The remarkable maturity shown by the people of Gujarat in terms of its tryst with industry is also a model for other Indian states.
Reliance is company that found roots in Gujarat at Naroda.
Reliance is a company that found signification growth in Gujarat, at Hazira and Jamnagar.
Reliance is a company that found faith in over three million shareholders, a majority of them from Gujarat.
Above all, Reliance is a company that very much reflects the ethos of Gujarat of effort, enterprise and endearment.
We began from Gujarat.
We learnt from here.
And we come back hereagain and again.
To create world-classassets.
Tocontribute to Gujarat's industrial and social development.
Over the next four years we will be investing over Rs 100,000crore in Gujarat.
Inexpanding our manufacturing facilities in Jamnagar, Hazira and Dahej.
Thiswill provide significant employment and also strengthen the export competitiveness of Gujarat and India.
We will also be creating next-genmobile broadband infrastructure that will be second to none in the world.
Thisinfrastructure will provide unprecedented opportunity to lakhs of youth and thousands of entrepreneurs all over Gujarat.
This will provide significant opportunities for innovation, skill-building,education and healthcare.
Iam fortunate that Hon'ble CM has given me an opportunity.
Iwould like to reiterate our commitment towards Shri Narendrabhai's vision to build a world class institution in Gujarat through my association with Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University since its inception.
Iam proud to inform that Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University has invested over Rs. 100 crore in expanding academic and research facilities since the last Vibrant Gujarat Summit in 2011.
Iam pleased to announce that Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University will be developed as a Global University with a focus on research and internationalization over the next five years.
Thiswill require investments of Rs. 500 crore.
Thiswill be done with a significant partnership between Reliance and the Government of Gujarat.
Reliancewill work closely with the Government of Gujarat for ensuring financial sustainability and academic autonomy.
Ourcollective endeavor is to provide a world class educational ecosystem that can produce world class graduates, scientists, academicians and potential Nobel Laureates.
I am sure in coming years Pandit Deendayal University will make its name in India &World of a new height.
Tomy mind, Vibrant Gujarat is not just an event to celebrate the spirit of business.
Itis a declaration of Gujarat's determination to move ahead.
It is an affirmation that India is marching forward with a clear vision to emerge as a major global power.
AndGujarat can make an important contribution in making this possible.
Forthis all of us need to work in a spirit of partnership.
Thisis the spirit behind Vibrant Gujarat.
