objective of the visit was to strengthen Gujarat‟s relation with China; by inviting Chinese investments into the state and by promoting trade relations. The visit helped in generating the desired interest. Our focus during the visit was on exploring tie-ups in infrastructure, culture, telecom & technology. Lot of interest has been generated among Chinese companies in these sectors. We expect Chinese investments in infrastructure, solar panel manufacturing, semi-conductor, renewable energy, port development and high value-added products. Several political and business meetings were held with the Chinese government and business leaders. The interest generated through these meetings was so significant that a delegation of textile machinery manufacturing companies will be visiting the state during the week starting 14th November 2011 to explore investment opportunities. We have also initiated dialogue on providing better flight connectivity from Ahmedabad to Beijing and Shanghai. According to a forecast, the Chinese investment in India is expected to reach USD 100 billion over the next five years. We target to attract at least 10 per cent of these investments into Gujarat. Hon‟ble Chief Minister has invited Chinese business community and public enterprises to participate in the Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2013. This visit has thus widened our horizons and has put forth a progressive partnership with China for us.
