 The 8th Vibrant Gujarat Summit will be held from January 10th -13th, 2017 in Gandhinagar, Gujarat and will likely be inaugurated by the Prime Minister. The theme for this year's summit is 'Gujarat Connecting India to the World'. The event will provide a platform for policy makers and industry leaders to present business opportunities, forge connections, and realize the potential of Gujarat as an investment destination.
