For the unversed, Modi and Ambani both hail from Gujarat, which is among the wealthiest states in India.

“I have come from the city of the Gateway of India to the gateway of modern India’s growth – Gujarat. I am a proud Gujarati. When foreigners think of a new India, they think of a new Gujarat. How did this transformation happen? Because of one leader, who has emerged as the greatest global leader of our times – PM Modi, the most successful PM in India’s history,” he said.

Mukesh Ambani referred to the Vibrant Gujarat Summit as the foremost global investors’ summit.

“Welcome to Gujarat and the 10th Vibrant Gujarat Summit, recognised as the foremost global investors’ summit. No other summit of this nature has persevered for two decades, consistently growing stronger. This stands as a tribute to PM Modi’s vision and steadfastness,” he remarked.

The coming generations will indeed be thankful to Prime Minister Modi for being both a nationalist and an internationalist.

“You have laid a solid foundation for ‘Viksit Bharat’ – India as a fully Developed Nation in Amrit Kaal. No power on earth can stop India from becoming a $35 trillion economy by 2047. And as I see Gujarat alone will become a $3-trillion economy,” Ambani said.
