In the 43rd AGM, the company made major announcements like a strategic partnership with Google, development of 5G solutions & products in India, Jio Glass and more.

As RIL has achieved a decent foothold in both digital services and organized retail it may now turn its focus to the ‘oil-to-chemicals’ project, for which it has signed an MoU with Saudi Aramco. RIL had guided for this project in its 2019 Annual General Meeting," the MOSL report stated.
