    Gujarat is a state in north-western India, wealthy in history, as a birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. The state is inhabited by a population of 60 million and the coastline is 1600 km long. During World War II Gujarat hosted children from Poland, who could be evacuated from Soviet Union along with the army of gen. Wladyslaw Anders.

    Gujarat is one of the three most industrialized Indian states. The north-south rail & road connection along the western coastline of India passes through it. Well-developed infrastructure, ports, high supply of proper electric energy, which is not necessarily a standard throughout India, bolster numerous investments. 

    On 31st of August and 1st September Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to India, Mr. Tomasz Łukaszuk, visited Gujarat. He held talks with the Chief Minister of Gujarat Vijay Rupani as well as state ministers of agriculture, mining resources, finances and industry. Ambassador Łukaszuk also met the organizers of the Vibrant Gujarat 2017 Forum. The event takes place every 2 years and includes participation of Polish policy makers along with extensive business delegations. In mid September an economic mission is to visit Poland, with the purpose of promoting the state as well as the Forum. In Poland the delegation will reach Warsaw, Cracow, Gdansk and Rzeszow. In addition, plans exist to establish contacts between the state of Gujarat and the Pommeranian voivodeship of Poland, which, due to location at the Arabian and Baltic seas, would provide both regions with a leading role in economic contacts between Poland and India. In addition, Ambassador Łukaszuk visited the largest port of India located in Mundra and was able to witness the work of both container and RoRo terminals. Other parts of the visit included a refinery and a power plant.
