WB CM invited to USA to showcase Bengal
The US-India Business Council has invited West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee to visit USA to showcase Bengal as an ideal destination for investment.
West Bengal Finance and Industry Minister Dr Amit Mitra said that the USIBC chairman appreciated the industrial environment prevailing in the state.
It is a fact that West Bengal offers tremendous opportunity for global investors to leverage from local skilled resources to proximity to Bangladesh and the ASEAN nations for increased manufacturing and trade. To improve investment in the State and increase skilled job creation are objectives that have been focused upon.
The USIBC has also proposed organizing individual Senior-level meetings and summits in multiple cities to increase the awareness about the opportunity and benefits of investing in West Bengal.
The USIBC has partnered with the major trade bodies in India, including the Confederation of Indian Industry, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, American Chamber of Commerce in India (AmCham India), National Association of Software and Services Companies, Indus Entrepreneurs and the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce.
Incidentally, the Chief Minister is expected to visit UK and have a meeting with the British Prime Minister Mr David Cameron later this month.
