World Health Organization (WHO) director-general Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus will make a three-day visit to Gujarat starting Monday, joining Prime Minister Narendra Modi in some events, officials said.
Mr Ghebreyesus will reach Rajkot on April 18, where he will stay overnight before meeting Prime Minister Modi in Jamnagar on Tuesday for the foundation stone-laying program of the WHO Global Center for Traditional Medicine (GCTM), said Rajkot collector Arun Mahesh Babu on Sunday.
GCTM will be the first and only global outpost center for traditional medicine around the world, he said.
On Wednesday, Mr. Ghebreyesus will be in Gandhinagar, where Prime Minister Modi is expected to inaugurate the Global AYUSH Investment and Innovation Summit. The three-day summit, to be hosted in Mahatma Mandir, will feature about 90 leading speakers and 100 exhibitors, officials said.
The summit will help uncover investment potential and boost innovation, research and development and the start-up ecosystem in the wellness industry. It will help bring industry leaders, academics and scientists together and act as a platform for future collaborations, they said.
Mauritian Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth will also arrive in Rajkot on Monday where he will be welcomed with cultural events at the airport and also along the route of his procession from the airport, Rajkot Mayor Pradip Dav said.
Several cultural events have been organized in their honor, Mr Dav said.
Several billboards have been placed along the route of his cavalcade reading ‘Welcome to Gujarat’.
