According to the district administration officials looking after the VIPs arrangements, Ambani may not attend as he would be on a visit to London.

The Third Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) partnership summit in Vizag city succession from February 24 to 26 and all arrangements are being made to make the event a grand success, like the previous two, but the absence of Indian’s richest man Ambani is a disappointment for many.
