Prime Minister Narendra Modi today invited investors from the world over to invest in India in the field of renewable sources of energy and contribute in the humanitarian task of solving the problem of global warming.

Inaugurating the eighth edition of the “Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit” here this evening, Modi said the world was concerned over global warming mainly because for the past two centuries, the world had been exploiting the nature and now the time had come to sustain natural resources.

His government, he said, was committed to promoting renewable sources of energy besides encouraging tourism that would largely contribute in India’s historic growth story started over two years ago.

Among the top industrialists from the country present were Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Gautam Adani and many others.
