Mr. Rajiva Sinha, Additional Chief Secretary, Government of West Bengal, visited the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce’s office today and discussed the 4th Edition of Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) scheduled to be held between 16th and 17th January, 2018.

The summit sets the stage with a stable Government, remarkable growth, improved governance, ease of doing business and record social and physical infrastructure.  The two-day long BGBS 2018 will bring together policy makers, corporate leaders from around the globe, delegations, academia, opinion makers to explore business opportunities, forge partnerships and collaborations. 

Mr. Arun Srivastava, President ICCC said that earlier in January under the aegis of India Mission 2017, the Chamber delegation visited the state of West Bengal and had a good business interaction with the Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Bharat Chamber of Commerce. He assured the visiting additional chief secretary that chamber will consider participating in the summit.

West Bengal is the 4th largest state economy in India with GSDP of US$ 140.21 billion (2015-16) and growth rate of Gross Value Added (GVA): 12.02% (2015-16). Strategic location of the state – Gateway to Southeast Asia and North-East India, border shared with Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan, well connected with the booming hubs of Asia such as Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia and a mineral rich state works to its advantage.

West Bengal today is committed towards inclusive and sustainable development. Investments made by the government in industrial infrastructure, simplification of Tax regime and e-governance, Single Window Service and  Simplification of regulatory burden initiated for environmental procedures are just few of the steps taken to build West Bengal into a manufacturing hub.
