"PM Modi, you defined the living bridge between the United Kingdom and India. I want to extend the greetings from my Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, the son-in-law of India. This Summit has truly in every sense served as a master class on how to go about attracting Global investors. Our nations may be separated by thousands of miles geographically, but that vast distance can diminish with the warmth between our people, that living bridge and there is so much in common between our two nations..." he said.
Lord (Tariq) Ahmad is the Minister of State for the Middle East, South Asia, and the UN and the Prime Minister's Special Representative on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict.

"Business links will continue to grow, creating jobs and prosperity. Whether it's from here in Ahmedabad to Aberdeen in Scotland, in the United Kingdom, our old friendship is blossoming into a new partnership..." he added.
The Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit was initiated by Narendra Modi in 2003, then chief minister, to put Gujarat on the world map of trade and industry.
The tenth edition of the Summit is held from January 10-12, 2024. For the smooth conduct of the event, several committees have been formed to look after various aspects of the summit.
