According to Pokhriyal, Bengal has robust industrial infrastructure which includes 200 industrial parks in diverse sectors of the economy.

West Bengal. The artisans in the State are excellent with their work."
On the issue, Feiner stated that Germany is a good trading partner of India and the two countries have balanced trade. As India is the 24th largest trading partner of Germany, there is a lot of scope for growth in trade between the two countries.
