WB CM to meet UK industry brass
With chief minister Mamata Banerjee being invited to Asia House in London for a round-table meeting on July 29, top state officials are working overtime to prepare for the 90-minute power-packed event, which is likely to pave the way for investment propositions in Bengal.
Asia House in London, which recently hosted dignitaries, such as the president of Mongolia, secretary of ASEAN, foreign minister of Japan and finance minister of Thailand, has invited WB CM to discuss Bengal’s potential as a business destination. The Chief Minister, along with state Finance Minister Dr Amit Mitra, Chief Secretary Sanjay Mitra, MSME Secretary Rajiva Sinha and other bureaucrats, will talk about the “ease of running business“ in Bengal.
In a note for the meeting, Asia House has mentioned Bengal’s achievements on the industry front. “It has abundant natural resources and a growing IT sector… the state government is making efforts to encourage higher revenue mobilization and enhance capital expenditure. The state is undergoing a major deregulation drive to make doing business in the state easier, faster and more transparent,“ it stated.
