Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries (RIL), announced investment plans in West Bengal. "We love the unity of the country and we love tolerance". Mamata promised the investors that "invest in Bengal, the state will offer you everything". The state is attracting businesses from all over the world like never before. There is no pressure, discrimination and intimidation here.
The business summit was attended by a host of prominent industrialists, including L.N. Mittal of Arcelor Mittal, Sajjan Jindal of JSW Steel, Kishor Biyani of Future group, Uday Kotak, the head of Kotak group, and Sanjiv Goenka, chairman of RP-Sanjiv Goenka group. "Bengal means business and we are serious and committed towards it", Banerjee said while speaking at the fourth edition of BGBS at Biswa Bangla Convention Centre in New Town. As Ambani ji said, Bengal is no. 1 state in terms of ease of doing business.
The chief minister promoted the entire eastern and north eastern states as an integrated business destination.
"Please consider Bengal as your home and Bengal will work with transparency, accountability, credibility, sincerity and punctuality". We have excelled in e-governance and e-tax collection. Positioning the state as the gateway to the Northeast, East and other Southeast Asian countries, Banerjee said, "Maharashtra is the country's commercial capital". Before coming to power, man days lost due to strike was more than 70 lakh. Ambani assured he will be investing more than Rs 50 billion in next three years in the non-Jio business. We do not allow any strike and blockade. "Now, it is zero", she said.
The ruling Trinamool was quick to react to Ambani's approval of the Bengal government. "The small and medium scale sectors, Bengal is number one".
