This is historic convention of 13 th PBD to be held in Gandhinagar because 100 years of return of Mahatama Gandhi, the greatest Pravasi is going to be completed. Mahatama Gandhi returned from Durban, South Africa in the year 1915 to India. The importance of this PBD becomes more remarkable because Mahatama Gandhi hailed from Gujarat. I am sure that PBD as biggest meet of overseas Indians will receive overwhelming record participation of NRIs and PIOs from across the world. So many Chief Ministers are participating in their respective state sections during PBD to showcase the strength of investment opportunities in their state.
This is for the first time that self esteem of Overseas Indians has scaled tremendous height in their host countries due to dynamic new leadership and image branding of global India under guidance of Modiji. Successful visit of Modiji to USA, Australia and Fiji has enthused the confidence of Overseas Indians and they are looking forward to India with great expectations.
I am sure that this PBD Is going to provide a global platform for exchange of ideas and vibrant discussion on so many new subjects. PBD will be followed by Vibrant Gujarat meet and it will give a one week opportunities for such coveted meets and discussions.
