The dawn of new year in hometown has brought in a new hope for Gujarat as our CM visited Singapore recently and calls in for Singapore companies to play a greater role in Gujarat's economic development. Also on a six day business tour to China, Narendrabhai expressed his desire to compete with China. He aims to attract Chinese investment into sectors like chemicals and pharmaceuticals, gas and oil, tourism and medical tourism apart from other sectors. Modi's agenda during the visit to China is two-fold. He wants to study the functioning of the SEZ in China and, possibly, invite them to help Gujarat build China-style SEZs as he has has already put in place the infrastructure to build 11 SEZs spread all over Gujarat.

More over this...however, the denial of visa by the US authorities has obviously not deterred Modi from taking seriously the imperatives of 'globalisation' and I am damn sure, Narendrabhai can Dream it, Make it Big and with all the 35 Gujarat-based industrialists and top bureaucrats and the Chamber of Commerce supporting the CM and his team, there is all chance to vision a 'Dream Gujarat - aapnu Gujarat' on the success path to glory.

Welcome Home NRIs to find a changed Gujarat - Metro city Ahmedabad to begin with....Yeah, Narendrabhai is sure to meet you all and concerned for your welfare too! Enjoy!
