Reflecting on the journey since the inaugural summit in 2003, he highlighted the summit's role in reinforcing the commitment to "Sankalp hi Siddhi" (determination to accomplishment). The Union Home Minister emphasized that India currently stands as a leading global choice for manufacturing and investment, with Gujarat emerging as the preferred destination within the country.
