Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday described his visit to the United Kingdom as successful.

Describing Gujarat as a dynamo of growth, Modi said he was pleased with the meetings he had with a large cross-section of British and British-Asian businessmen, which allowed him to present the exciting potential and opportunities that the economic success of Gujarat offers.

On the 'Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit' to be held in Ahmedabad and Surat from September 28 to 30, the chief minister said: "It will provide a useful platform for investors all over the world, especially the UK, to interface with the government and local businesses of Gujarat and see for themselves several attractive projects for foreign investment that are on the offer."

He said the summit would be a mix of business and pleasure, as it coincides with the Navratri celebrations, which will provide the guests a chance to participate in the longest dance festival in the world and enjoy the rich culture and hospitality of Gujarat.

On his interactions with the Gujarati community in the UK, many of whom have family and business links in the state, he said: "I have always maintained that I represent all 50 million Gujarati brothers and sisters. We share a common heritage and a common future.

"The enthusiasm and encouragement now shown by the overseas Indians has renewed my faith in the future development and prosperity of Gujarat and India," Modi added.
