Bengal Global Business Summit 2016: Mamata Banerjee seeks and promises support to businessmen

Speaking at the Summit, Chief Minister Mamata Banerje on Friday said West Bengal far exceeded India in terms of GVA, industry and agriculture growth.

The Big Bang theory seemed to resonate as the Big Bong theory in Bengal...

Whether it was camaraderie sans comrades or globe trotter guests...Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee extended a warm welcome to the delegates from 25 countries including the Prime Minister of Bhutan.

Counting the growth in the state she however did not forget to mention her achievements. Mamata said, "In a federal structure, if a state progresses, the country also progresses;  just like a joint venture. Bengal far exceeded India in growth of GVA, industry and agriculture. Our per capita income is double that of India. Our GVA growth is 10.5 per cent while that of India is 7.5 per cent. India's per capita income is 6 per cent and ours is 12 per cent. Bengal's tax collection has increased by 200 per cent, Capital Expenditure (Asset Creating) has increased by 601 per cent. Bengal's Agriculture and Rural Development Expenditure has increased 547 per cent. Bengal's Plan Expenditure has increased by 311 per cent, Physical infrastructure has increased by 330 per cent. We have given tax-free fuel for airlines and a new airport has come up in Andal. We have a land map, land bank and land use policy. There are 5000 acres of land available for industry."

Blame it on lack of industries that Bengal has unconsumed power... but Mamata Banerjee had a different perspective to it.. "Bengal is a power surplus state. We have a power bank. Out of a population of 9 crore people in the state, 7 crore will be covered by food security."

Interestingly she did mention the Prime Minister schemes but with a clause of praising her own government.

"Prime Minister started Swachh Bharat programme. Three out of 4 top districts in India are from Bengal. We have conducted 153 CMO to BDO meetings at grassroots. Direct interaction is key to our success. The increase in industry in 2014-15 in West Bengal stands at 8.34 per cent while that of India is 5.6 per cent. Unity in diversity is our mantra. There is no communal tension in Bengal. Maoist violence has come down. A deep sea port is coming up in Bengal in partnership with Centre," she added.

With Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the dais, Mamata Banerjee made a successful attempt in working over and above party lines.

Leading Exporter and MD of Patton Group Sanjay Budhia says, "the Direction, Vision and Passion of Hon'ble Chief Minister and the perseverance and persistence of Finance and Industry Minister have really paid off. The Summit is not about B to B or G to G but more than that it is H to H - Heart to Heart. It has energised, enthused, and encouraged the Entrepreneurs, Investors and Industrialists both domestic and overseas. It will be Catalyst in Changing the Perception and Projecting the true potential of our State. The minutest details in preparation are of international standards in terms of clarity, comfort and convenience without any scope for chaos and confusion for both delegates and dignitaries."

Jute Baron and Chairman of Sarda Group, Ghanshyam Sarda too echoed the trust in the Chief Minister. He said, "The Bengal Summit will usher in a new era of geometric growth in Bengal due to the concerted efforts by the Government, the presence of such an impressive number of foreign delegates and enthusiastic participation of corporate houses."

Arun Jaitley too rose above party differences during the West Bengal Global Economic Summit. He said, "This summit is not just a ritual event, it is of importance under current global trends. Summits like this add to confidence of investors that this is now policy direction of West Bengal government."

Well, with elections just a few months away it would be interesting to watch the statements made from dais performing in reality in diaspora!
