Initial impressions of Ahmedabad are that this is a city that has a strong vision with an ability to execute on this vision. The results they have achieved over the last five years in transforming their physical infrastructure are astounding. The next wave of of execution against the vision will be to strengthen the digital infrastructure to help them become a smarter city.

The mission of the government is to improve the quality of life of it’s citizens. I am attaching a collage of some of the citizens of Ahmedabad. It’s all about the people!
