Ahmedabad, Jan 12 (Agencies): Anil Ambani on Wednesday said that his Reliance Group will invest Rs 50,000 crore in Gujarat in the next 5-7 years on various projects.

The decision was taken in a bid to tap opportunities in the state.

"We are committing to invest Rs 50,000 crore in the state of Gujarat in gas-based and coal-based power projects in the next 5-7 years", Ambani said while speaking at the 5th Global Summit of Vibrant Gujarat here.

He said the investments would include very large investments in the cement sector in areas like Kutch, Porbandar and Junagadh.

Already the group firm Reliance Power has undertaken development activities at Bharuch in Gujarat, where it is setting up a gas-based 8,000 MW power plant.

"I want to say that the group will play a meaningful role in driving the change and transformation happening in Gujarat," he added.
