On July 29, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate India's first international bullion exchange at Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City). He will also lay the groundwork for the headquarters of the International Financial Services Centres Authority, the unified regulator.

GIFT City is the country's first International Financial Services Centre (IFSC). During his visit, the prime minister will launch the India International Bullion Exchange (IIBX), which will facilitate efficient price discovery while ensuring responsible sourcing and quality, as well as give impetus to the financialisation of gold in India, according to an IFSC Authority statement.

“This shall empower India to gain its rightful place in the global bullion market and serve the global value chain with integrity and quality. This also re-enforces the commitment of the Government of India towards enabling India to be able to influence global bullion prices as a principal consumer," the statement said.
