Mittal praised the concepts, creativity, and process continuity rooted in the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit while discussing the event’s institutionalized structure. Thinking back to his September visit of the previous year, he offered his insights on Prime Minister Modi’s inspiring theme for the summit, ‘One Earth, One Family, and One Future,’ projecting that it would greatly boost India’s prestige internationally.

“I had come here in September last year for Vibrant Gujarat. PM Modi then briefed us on how this mega-global event has institutionalized structure on the basis of ideas, imagination, and process continuity. The PM had then said that India’s pride will increase with the theme of ‘One Earth, One Family, and One Future’,” Mittal said.
Arcelormittal expressed excitement for the project and underlined how important it is to the global steel industry. He also emphasized Arcelor Mittal’s investments in green hydrogen and renewable energy in addition to steel.
