Singapore recognized as one of the 30 partner countries at VGGS, views Gujarat as a pivotal investment destination. The forthcoming expansion will mainly target Gujarat’s green economy and sustainability sector, aligning with global efforts to promote environmentally conscious practices.

The formal declaration of Singapore’s increased investments in Gujarat will be unveiled during the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit.

To showcase the robust presence of Singaporean companies in Gujarat, a dedicated Singapore Pavilion will be established at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Trade Show. Additionally, a country seminar focusing on Singapore’s economic collaboration with Gujarat will be conducted, highlighting the shared commitment to fostering growth and sustainability.

A high-powered delegation of numerous officials and nearly 100 business delegates will represent Singapore at VGGS. Simon Wong, the High Commissioner of Singapore to India, leads this delegation. Wong will deliver the opening remarks at the Singapore Seminar on January 10, 2024. His speech is expected to underscore the potential for enhanced economic cooperation between Singapore and Gujarat by exploring new investment avenues.

Organized by the Singapore Business Federation (SBF), the apex business chamber in Singapore, the Singapore Country Pavilion will feature around 60 business delegates. These delegates represent a spectrum of sectors, including technology and innovation, banking and finance, infrastructure and environmental solutions, diversified investments, and transport and logistics.

Notable companies such as DBS, Sembcorp, YCH, and Blue Planet are among the nine prominent entities showcased at the Singapore Country Pavilion. These companies are expected to outline their plans for increasing investments in Gujarat, particularly in finance, renewable energy, waste management, and logistics.
