The two-day event aimed to showcase India’s capability in the chemical sector and & allied industry, providing opportunity to utilize the immense potential for more trade and investments in India. Ananth Kumar, the union minister for chemicals and fertilizers, while inaugurating the event called for realizing full potential of Dahej PCPIR by turning two million tonne petrochemical raw materials produced there annually into finished product in the region itself.

More than 150 exhibitors and 7000 business visitors were present at the event. They bought out winning strategies for building and strengthening the awareness of emerging new application of speciality chemicals sector & allied industry and highlight the application technologies to enhance productivity.

Highlighting the emerging need of talent for chemicals processing in the country, Kumar also said the Centre will open the country’s first Central Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology at Dahej.

Kumar asked the Gujarat government to submit a proposal for viability gap funding (VGF), which is a grant to support economically justifiable projects, for Dahej.

“Chief ministers of other states like Karnataka and Telangana have sent us VGF, but Gujarat, already a prosperous state, does not think it necessary to make such a proposal, but I would ask you to send it to us,” he said in presence of Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani.

He concluded by asking the state to establish a “Dahej Investment Summit,” so that companies across the globe could come and invest in the area.
