Chairman's Message

Reena Bhagwati

With India being one of the fastest developing country in the world, Gujarat has always been at the forefront and played vital role in the industrial, social, economic development of the country. Gujarat, through its rigorous efforts, has achieved the distinction of being one of the most industrially developed state. While India is endeavoring to achieve double digit GDP growth, Gujarat will play vivacious role with its higher per-capita GDP which is more than the country’s average.

The Government of Gujarat has played a pivotal role by remaining proactive and going much beyond the time to ensure growth in all the sectors of industry - small, medium and large companies as well as also ensuring social well-being. The state government has taken numerous steps for all-round inclusive growth and development.

Appreciating the entrepreneurial acumen of Gujarat, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has always been closely working with all the stakeholder and has played catalytic role in facilitating the industry need and concerns. CII has always been contributing to the state’s prosperity through its novel initiative and bringing together industry, policy-makers, thought-leaders and the society for a sustainable development of the economy, both for Gujarat as well as the nation.

As a step forward in this area, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), with the support of Government of Gujarat has set up Gujarat Knowledge Application & Facilitation Centre (GKAFC), a Centre of Excellence for supporting Industry, Technopreneurs and Society at Ahmedabad. CII GKAFC has been envisaged to facilitate the three most important pillar of the state’s economy i.e. Industry, Technopreneurs & Society through its wide-ranging expert services.

I would like to compliment the initiatives taken by CII & Government of the Gujarat for the benefit of industry & believe that it will not only strengthen the competitive appetite but will also encourage innovation, research & development in industry.

I am sure that CII GKAFC would go a long way considering their hands-on experience and expertise in the area of research & development, innovations, creativity, technology transfer/acquisition etc.

I wish them a tremendous success.

Warm Regards,
