Earlier in the day, the Gujarat Chief Minister held one-on-one meetings with CEOs and MDs of key industries to apprise them about the investor-friendly policies of the state and invited them to participate in the upcoming summit.

Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) Secretary Ramesh Abhishek, who present at the event, credited Gujarat for showing the way in increasing the ease of doing business, which when applied at the central government level has powered India's rise in the global rankings over the last four years.

The state government has already held 24 roadshows around the world in the run-up to the biannual event. It will also organise roadshows in other cities, including Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Kolkata.
