Gujarat inks pact with Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry
- The Gujarat government signed an MoU with Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) to enhance the bilateral trade.
- JCCI has inked MoUs with many industry institutions such as the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) at city level, but it was the first time they have signed an MoU with a state in India.
- Earlier, a high-level group from Gujarat had visited several South African cities to bring investments to the state.
- The delegation also plans to visit Tanzania and Kenya, where there are substantial Gujarati people in the business domain, to invite them to the 6th edition of the bi-ennial Vibrant Gujarat Summit in January 2013.
