Seminars on topics covering trade, manufacturing, exports and port-led development will be held during the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, to be held at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar between January 18 and 20 next year, officials said Monday.

While two seminars - one on 'Make in India' and another on 'Port-led development' - will be held on January 18 after the inaugural event, a seminar on trade and exports is slated to be held on the second day of the mega summit, said state Industries Commissioner, Mamta Verma.

During the seminar on 'Make in India', industry leaders and senior official of both state and Center would share their views on industrial corridors, industrial parks, 'Ease of Doing Business' and industrial policy, Verma told reporters.

Some of the key persons who would give their addresses include NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant and CEO and MD of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation Limited, Alkesh Kumar Sharma.

On the same day, another seminar on 'Port-led development' will be held in the presence of Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari, said Verma.

During the event, national as well as international experts and industry stalwarts would share their views with the invited audience, she said.

On January 19, a special seminar on 'Trade and Exports' will be organised in the presence of Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Suresh Prabhu.

The main focus of the seminar is to boost the economy and make India a "trillion dollar exports economy", said Verma.
