Kenyan PM Raila Odinga meets Narendra Modi

Quote:


The Prime Minister of Kenya Mr. Raila Amolo Odinga today called on Gujarat Chief Minsiter Narendra Modi in Gandhinagar. The Kenyan Prime Minster came to Gandhinagar from Mumbai and was accompanied by his special advisor Mr. Ahmed Kassam and industrialist from Mombasa.

The two leaders discussed strengthening of economic, industrial and educational ties between Gujarat and Kenya. Shri Modi recalled his visit to Kenya in 2008 and the participation of the Kenyan delegation led by their Prime Minister in the 2009 Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit and how these landmark events set the tone for a strong relation between Gujarat and Kenya. The Chief Minister invited Kenya to participate in the 2013 Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit.

The Chief Minister shared an overview of the innovative Dholera SIR and GIFT city projects of the Gujarat Government.

Kenya will be electing a new President in March 2013 and Mr. Odinga is one of the candidates running for the Presidency.

Mr. Odinga lauded the development in Gujarat expressed interest exploring partnerships especially in gas, petroleum, solar & wind energy, diamonds and agro processing- fertilizers sectors. Other aspects that were discussed include increasing skill development among the youth, LNG Terminal and power energy industry.

The Kenyan Prime Minister said that through IT Network Kenya could initiate a Telemedicine Superspeciality Project with Gujarat and the way Gujarat has been using specialized universities to enhance human resource development by joining hands with universities from all over the world, Kenya and Gujarat could strengthen cooperation in the education sector.

The two leaders discussed enhancing ties in the field of cotton production and textile garment manufacturing and setting up of a Centre of Excellence for Cotton Research and Textile.

Those present during the interaction included Principal Secretary (Industry) Mr. Maheshwar Sahu, Additional Chief Secretary Mr. K Kailashnathan, Additional Principal Secretary Mr. GC Murmu, Secretary to Chief Minister Mr. AK Sharma among other officials.
While national Govt still undervalues the growing economic importance of Africa, Gujarat can lead the way, especially in countries with influential Gujarati populations, such as Kenya.

Global trade show to set new record

It will be the largest-ever exhibition under a temporary structure in the country and is likely to make it to the Limca Book of Records


Source


The global trade show, being organised as part of Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2013, is expected to set a new record in terms of expanse, say top government official. The six-day trade show, starting January 8, would be spread over an area of 1,00,000 sq m and will have participation of over 1,000 companies from 14 countries.

"It would be the largest-ever exhibition under a temporary structure in the country. We expect footfall of 15 lakh," Principal Secretary (Industries) Maheshwar Sahu said. "It will have largest-ever facade of 3,000 sq m, 300 m in length and 10 m in height," he said.

"The show will have 30 domes, 14 exclusive pavilions, over 1,000 stalls and more than 25,000 products on display from 25 diverse sectors such as renewable energy, plastics, electrical, real estate, amongst others. "On demand, a special agri-business pavilion has been set up," Sahu said.

There will also be a model of solar village. "The trade show spread across 25,000 sq m at VGS 2011 had entered Limca Book of Records, and this exhibition would set another benchmark," Sahu claimed. The government expects the CM’s pavilion to draw a crowd as the plans for future cities of Sanand, Bahucharaji and Dholera will be displayed here.


PSUS TO INK MOUS

Public Sector Undertakings are likely to take up the cause of upgrading state government’s education and health facilities in coming years. During Vibrant Gujarat meet, various PSUs will sign MoUs with health and education department to set up greenfield schools/upgrade existing schools and open modern diagnostic health centres in next 2-3 years.

A total of 70 schools and 73 diagnostic centres will be set up. This was decided at a meeting held between principal secretary (education) and principal secretary (health) on one hand, along with PSUs and other stakeholders on December 31.

Principal Secretaries (Industries) Maheshwar Sahu said, “After industrialists, we are going to rope in PSUs/government boards for health and education sectors. Seven PSUs are going to ink these MoUs in education sector and nine (including industries) in health sector.”

VGGIS 2013 promo:



Wonder what we can look forward to? Another Auto major and a couple of big finance/tech firms for GIFT would be awesome. Hope to see a big push in textiles to capitalise on being a major Cotton growing state.

And some revival for the Dholera SIR would also be good. Thanks to the center's apathy, it has almost slipped into coma...

Yeah, at least with GIFT there are 2 towers to show, Dholera is almost exactly as it was at the end of the last summit. The lack of progress on DMIC should be seen as a matter of national shame!

I reckon they should kill 2 birds with one stone by promoting Dholera for the new textile parks. To be honest, I've never really been convinced by this Sabeer Bhatia guy and his Nanocity even when it was proposed for Haryana. Modi has been talking about Dholera a bit lately, I hope that's a sign that there is already some investment/news lined up!

Dholera is a flood prone area. flood control studies are being done at present for dholera. All the automobile companies were shown dholera but they did not move there because of flooding problems.

Another solution is to move shift dholera 10km inland from the current position. this will make it move out of the flood zone area. For this another round of master plan will have to be made but that will be feasible.

Feel free to download and read the actual Dholera SIR development plan link I'll warn you it's a 26MB document but it literally covers every single detail you could imagine, including flood risk both with and without the Kalpasar Dam.

The idea that flood risk is something that hasn't been looked at or planned for is just plain ridiculous. From day 1, they have always made it clear that of the land that will be acquired, approx 1/3 cannot be developed because of CRZ/flooding. Along with GIFT, there seems to be a major desperation for the project to be undermined by certain usual suspects the media.

There has never actually been any quote from any auto exec saying they are avoiding Dholera because of flooding, that it just the inference of biased journalists who are republishing all their old articles about Dholera in time for Vibrant Gujarat Summit. Auto majors were all shown locations at Dholera, Sanand, Halol, Mundra and Rajkot. Obv each project can only go to one location with all others being rejected. Dholera is still on paper now let alone when negotiations were going on with Ford and Maruti, surely that'd be a bigger factor than this "flood myth"?

If fear of flooding was a deterrent then 1/3rd of the Netherlands would not be present today...
