According to officials, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Gujarat on July 27 and 28, where he would inaugurate the newly completed greenfield airport in Rajkot. According to reports, he will also inaugurate ‘Semicon India 2023,’ an event in the state capital Gandhinagar to highlight investment potential in India’s semiconductor sector.

According to Collector Prabhav Joshi, Modi will dedicate the Hirasar greenfield airport to the nation on July 27 before speaking at a public assembly in Rajkot. In October 2017, the Prime Minister set the groundwork for the airport.

Modi will launch ‘Semicon India 2023’ in Gandhinagar on July 28. The event’s exhibition will be inaugurated by Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel on July 25, and the programme will run from July 25 to July 30, according to a government announcement.
Union ministers Ashwini Vaishnaw, S Jaishankar and Rajeev Chandrasekhar will mark their presence at the event.

According to the exhibition’s website, the exhibition’s goal is to educate visitors about the intricate manufacturing process of semiconductors and the extraordinary accomplishments made in this dynamic industry.

President Joe Biden announced the development of a state-of-the-art semiconductor assembly, testing, marking, and packaging (ATMP) facility by Micron Technology Inc in India during PM Modi’s recent visit to the US, it added.

Following that, the Gujarat government struck an agreement worth Rs 22,500 crore with semiconductor chip giant Micron Technology to develop the ATMP facility in the state of Sanand.

Experts in semiconductor chip, display fab, chip design, and assembling from around the world will assemble for three days to share their experience and opinions on new prospects in India, according to the announcement.
Companies such as Foxconn, Micron, AMD, IBM, Marvell, Vedanta, Lam Research, NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, Grantwood Technologies, Infineon Technologies, Applied Materials, and other prominent players in the sector will participate in the event, the government said.
