Mumbai: One of the largest NRI organisations in the nation, the Association of Indian Americans in North America (AIANA), and TV9 Network, have teamed up to celebrate the extraordinary international success of the Gujarati diaspora.

Over 2,500 A-list Gujaratis from throughout India and more than 20 countries will attend the three-day Pravasi Gujarati Parv 2022 starting on 15 October in order to honour the outstanding Gujarati enterprise, culture, and asmita.

Gujaratis living abroad are returning to Ahmedabad, where a three-day think and fun festival will commemorate their achievements as ambassadors of a new and resurgent India.

It is a salute to the unstoppable force of Gujaratism and includes multi-media performances, a cultural extravaganza, thought leadership sessions, keynote speeches by politicians, sessions by spiritual gurus, business conferences, and celebrity performances.

To welcome NRGs, prominent individuals, international Gujarati leaders from many industries, and Gujarati policymakers will be present. The think fest will set a new standard with over 200 important leaders, 80 speakers, 30 mega conclaves and conferences, 30 business tycoons, and multimedia performances with over 50 artists.

Talking about the initiative, TV9 Network MD and CEO Barun Das said, "Diaspora plays a strategic role in building brand India in the global arena. The Gujarati diaspora has made an enduring impression world over driving thought leadership across domains. TV9's Pravasi Gujarati Parv is a modest effort to showcase the global Gujarati leadership and celebrate its success. Joining the unique global celebration will be India's top policy makers, celebrities and business leaders."

AIANA, India president Praful Nayak said, "As India is celebrating the 75th year of its independence, it is the most opportune time to showcase and celebrate the contribution of the Gujarati diaspora in building brand India in the global arena. It is our privilege to host global Gujarati leaders across the spectrum and learn from their journey. I am confident that their presence will inspire not only Gujaratis but people from all across the country. We, at AIANA, have been connecting, communicating, and celebrating the Indian diaspora on a global stage since 2002 through various mega events and initiatives."

The three-day event will be broadcast live on TV and digital, and it will centre on discussions and debates about how to make the NRI community feel at home to attract more investments; how Gujarati capital is creating global wealth; and how to celebrate Gujaratis in every sector—from sports to business to entertainment—and be the voice of Gujarat on the international stage. It will also give young achievers who are making Gujarat proud a platform to felicitate them. There will also be cultural performances to highlight Gujarati customs.
