Gujarat International Finance-Tec City - or 'GIFT' for short - is a present for the Indian financial services sector.

The brand new city is designed to help India compete with international and regional finance hubs, such as Hong Kong and Singapore. The team behind the project hope it will appeal to global firms by providing high-class infrastructure and facilities, with a stream of top Indian talent to fill jobs.

The opportunity is significant: India’s financial sector is growing rapidly, and could generate 11 million jobs and contribute up to $400 billion to GDP by 2020, according to the group behind the project.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/12/india-is-building-a-city-from-scratch-to-attract-foreign-investors?utm_source=Facebook%20Videos&utm_medium=Facebook%20Videos&utm_campaign=Facebook%20Video%20Blogs

I am Indian and I can tell you, we have been hearing about this city for several years now. It's only being mentioned when politicians need votes. Don't get fooled.

Have you visited that place? Can’t you see it’s work in progress. Rome wasn’t built in a day. You can only make comments.

I think I saw this video almost 5-6 years ago. Any progress? Or just election gimmick?
