The state encompasses major sites of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization, such as Lothal and Dholavira. Lothal is believed to be one of the world's first ports. Gujarat's coastal cities, chiefly Bharuch, served as ports and trading centers in the Maurya and Gupta empires. Mahatma Gandhi, considered India's "father of the nation", was a Gujarati who led the Indian Independence Movement against the British colonial rule.Gujarat played an important role in the economic history of India throughout the history of India. The state has the fastest growing economy in India. It is also one of the most industrialized states of India, and has a per capita GDP almost twice that of the national averageModern-day Gujarat is derived from Gujjar-ratra (Shauraseni form derived from Sanskrit Gurjar-Rashtra), the Gurjar nation. The origins of the Gujjars are uncertain. The Gujjar clan appeared in northern India about the time of the Huna invasions of northern India. The name of the tribe was Sanskritized to "Gurjara". The Gurjars/Gujjars believe to have descended from SuryavanshiKshatriyas (Sun Dynasty). Historically, the Gurjars were Sun-worshipers and their copper-plate grants and seals also bear an emblem of the Sun.The ancient history of Gujarat was enriched by their commercial activities. There is a clear historical evidence of trade and commerce ties with Sumer in the Persian Gulf during the time period of 1000 to 750 BC

Good Governance. Governance in Gujarat stems from a firm and able Chief Minister, who is committed to clean public life and ensuring that benefits of development reach the villages. He is a visionary with a keen interest in laying down sustainable policies to spur growth and development in a time bound manner. He envisions world class standards and ensures implementation of world class projects. (b) Departmental Synergy. Steps have been taken to ensure inter-departmental knowledge-sharing within the Gujarat Government. This, understandably, has engendered a better understanding of the capabilities and limitations of each other, thereby fostering more informed decision-making. (c) Responsiveness and Transparency. Stress on accountability coupled with utilisation of ICT towards e-governance is having a positive impact on reduction of corruption at lower levels and better transparency.It is also quite clear that accountability and efficiency are being demanded from government officials by the political leadership. (e) Industry.(i) Most of the larger business houses belong to Indians who have their roots in Gujarat; hence the benefits percolate to the locals also in terms of increase in direct and indirect employment besides induction of new technologies in agricultural sector also.(ii) SEZs. Apparently, wastelands being allotted for establishment of SEZs are often wastelands no more. High levels of water conservation, harvesting and recycling have converted large tracts of otherwise dry lands into fertile pieces. Revenue records however, continue to show them as wastelands thereby increasing the probability of conflict situations between the SEZ developer, the State and its citizens.(f) Water Management. It has been given the right focus which has transformed the state from water deficient to water sufficient state. It now boasts of agricultural growth thrice that of National rate. Its agricultural sector has been growing at 9.6 percent. The focus of the CM to further enhance the water availability in the state is to encourage construction of desalination plants through PPP model(g) Education Innovativeness. The CM has been visionary in anticipating the educational needs of the state accordingly some path breaking initiatives have either been taken or are on the anvil which is worth emulating by other states. There has been a manifold increase in number of schools, universities and opening of special universities like RakshaShakti University, Children University, Forensic University, Indian Institute of Teachers Education, Kamdhenu University and Petroleum University.(h) PPP Model. Gujarat state has been the country leader in adopting the PPP model especially for infrastructure development and establishment of industries.(j) Location Leverage. The State is quite gainfully leveraging its strategic location and port, rail and road linkages to catapult itself along the growth trajectory, inviting unprecedented FDI and private investments to create job opportunities.(k) Impetus to Industries. Creation of SIRs, Petrochemical and Petroleum Regions, 60 SEZs and 200 industrial areas, across key sectors has accelerated its growth. Its renewed focus on agro parks, tourism, recreation and IT are further propelling its sustained growth.(l) Inclusive Growth & Spending on the Social Sector. Viable PPP initiatives help release funds for focused expenditure in the social sector. By value, the investment in social sectors is 41% in Rural Development, 34% in Health Care, 22% in Education and 3% in Skill Development.Overall, the State is forging ahead with a long-term vision, strengthening its administrative institutions and transforming itself with commitment. Gujarat growth story is the way ahead for other states of the nation.
