Introduction of FGI – Vadodara :
The Federation of Gujarat Industries was founded in the year 1918, in the erstwhile Baroda State, under the progressive rule of Shrimant Sayajirao Gaekwad, who encouraged social reforms and industrial development to modernize Baroda. It is one of the oldest, active, socially conscious Industrial Associations in the country. The Federation of Gujarat Industries aimed at promoting, protecting, and projecting the interest of industries and also catering to the needs of the community at large
The Federation thus had a tradition of Industrial Development which it has maintained throughout and continues to uphold the same. It has been working pro-actively in the overall interest of Business & Industry sector of Gujarat. The FGI continues to move forward with time, keeping pace with modernization & reforms, ushering progress and prosperity of the state’s economy.
The Federation has blossomed into one of the Prime Industries’ Association in Gujarat and its archives are full of events associated with the vast industrial growth in and around Vadodara on the golden corridor of Gujarat. In addition to its economic role for Trade & Industry, the FGI has been playing a significant role to fulfill its social obligations to the society at large. To achieve these goals on a wider scale the Federation has set up useful institutions like the Baroda Management Association, Baroda Productivity Council, Co-operative Bank of Baroda Ltd., Federation Samaj Kalyan Trust, Baroda Citizens Council, etc. The Federation has also played a vital role in setting up of Forum of Federations, Chambers and Associations of Industries of Gujarat comprising of associations in an around Vadodara region to take up and resolve common issues of industries.
During our meeting with FGI office bearers, they have expressed their willingness to provide UID a platform to interact/interface with around 500+ members of its association in the areas of Product Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Automation & Motion Graphics Design, Graphic Design & Visual Communication and would like us to conduct the following listed events.
