Gandhinagar, Aug 5 (IANS) A delegation comprising representatives of top investment firms of the US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Abu Dhabi, besides India, Thursday called on Chief Minister Narendra Modi during their visit to Gujarat.
The delegation showed interest in the state government’s policies, financial, agricultural and human resource management and the achievements of the government, according to an official release issued here.
Inviting the investors to participate in the forthcoming Gujarat Global Investors’ Summit-2011, Modi said that there is no problem in the matter of land requirements for industrial purposes in the state.
He said the state government does not partner industries in buying of land, and land acquisition should not happen at the cost of farmers and industries should not grow at the cost of environment.
Modi noted that the state government is adopting new strategies to maintain the pace of growth. ‘A new Gujarat is being born alongside the 1,600 km coast with different types of modern towns planned to be developed along with special investors’ zone,’ he added.
The chief minister also suggested that every industrial house should adopt a sport or game to give it a push and thus, contribute in creating a sports culture in the country.
