Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2019: Mukesh Ambani says RIL to double employment numbers over the next 10 years in state

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani on Friday said that his company will double investment and employment numbers over the next 10 years in Gujarat.

Ambani, who was speaking at the 9th edition of Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit in Gandhinagar, added that Reliance Retail will launch an e-commerce platform in the state.

RIL has invested Rs 3 lakh crore so far in Gujarat and is committed to make the state fully digital, Ambani said.

"Gandhiji launched a movement against political colonisation. We need a revolution against data colonisation. India's data should be controlled only by India. I hope PM will make this the goal of Digital India mission," Ambani was quoted as saying by CNN-News18.

The three-day investors' meet was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Mahatma Mandir facility for international events in the state capital on Friday.
