Proposals flooding in for investments in Theme Cities: Urban Development Minister
More than 50 organisations from foreign countries and other states of India are giving proposals for investments for the six Theme City projects in Bengal.
Investment proposals have also been received for IT and Financial Hubs. State Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim disclosed the information after returning from the International Urban Development Summit held at Istanbul.
At the Summit, the State Urban Development Minister termed himself as the ‘marketing representative’ of Bengal and invited the investors to come to Bengal and feel the warmth and make investments. He pointed out to them that India is one of the few places in Asia which has huge opportunities for making investments and Bengal is the best State to invest into.
The State Urban Development Minister gave various examples of the theme township projects as well as the good governance of the stable Government. He said that the investors have showed major interest on Baruipur theme township project which is going to be connected to the extended EM Bypass soon.
