New Delhi: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited Spain this year in response to the invitation of the Spanish government. During the 12-day visit, he also visited Dubai and participated in a business summit there. The Chief Minister expressed hope that his visit would bring ‘Lakshmi’ to Bengal. That his hope was not unfounded, is going to be proved at the seventh Bengal Global Business Summit. This time only the largest delegation is going to come from Britain. The British Deputy High Commission confirmed the news on Saturday.
British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis said, “I look forward to leading the largest British delegation to the Bengal Global Business Summit in Kolkata… I hope this summit will help British businesses expand here and Bengali companies to expand in Britain.” Ellix said that this time, a delegation of 55 people from Britain is coming to Kolkata for the Bengal Global Business Summit, which is more than the last few years.
According to the British Deputy High Commission, the Bengal Global Business Summit to be held in Kolkata on November 21 and 22 will include British companies – Technobilt, Airnode, SmartViz, XWorks Tech, Hi-Met Limited, Cambridge Carbon Capture, GreenNco and Total McDonald’s.
Incidentally, a few days ago, the state’s Industry and Commerce Minister Shashi Panja, who visited Delhi, expressed hope for the success of the Bengal Business Summit. All the industrialists have been invited and many industrialists from the country and abroad will come, he said. Even though there was a controversy over Mahua Maitra, the Adani group has also been invited to the Bengal Business Summit, he said. In other words, Shashi Panja made it clear that industry and development of the state are above politics.
