Panaji, Jul 7 : The Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) has decided to support Vibrant Goa and its initiative, the Vibrant Goa-Global Expo and Summit 2019 (VG-GES 2019) to be held in Goa between October 17-19 later this year.
This was disclosed in a letter written by Manoj Caculo, the newly elected president of GCCI to the Vibrant Goa Foundation (VGF)on Thursday.
The GCCI letter said, “For quite some time now, the Goan economy is stagnant and no good fresh investments are coming to the state. The Chamber feels that something like Vibrant Goa is very much required to help in showcasing Goa as a good investment destination. Therefore, the Chamber will support any initiative that can benefit the business community in Goa.”
The letter also stated that the Chamber’s managing committee at its meeting held on 3rd July 2019 had unanimously decided to support the Vibrant Goa initiative.
The Chamber stated that it would partner VG-GES 2019 and would assist Vibrant Goa Foundation in promoting and organizing various parallel festivals in the state of Goa during the Vibrant Goa Global Expo and Summit 2019.
The Vibrant Goa Foundation (VGF) is a public trust registered with the Government of Goa and the Niti Ayog.
Vibrant Goa 2019 is based on the Vibrant Gujarat model which brings together global business leaders, investors, corporations, thought leaders, policy and opinion makers to understand and explore business opportunities in the state.
So far, 195 overseas delegates have registered for the event. Road shows to the Far-East countries and Bhutan are scheduled in the month of July. At least 350 overseas delegates and a large number of Indian delegates are expected to take part in this first edition of Vibrant Goa Global Expo & Summit 2019.
The VG-GES 2019 will be held in Goa between October 17-19 this year and is organized by VGF in partnership with the GCCI, Global Network, BNI, the Government of Goa and the Niti Ayog. It is also supported by various industry organisations in Goa, besides the National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC). (UNI)
