Two ministers in the West Bengal government on Thursday urged the industry captains to come forward for the development of the state, saying infrastructure has been modernised. “We need support from the industry captains. We succeeded in modernising the state infrastructure in the last five years. It is now the turn of the industry to make investments,” West Bengal Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim said.
“For industrial investment, investment in infrastructure is needed. For this, the industry can invest in the new five townships and the analytics city which were being planned,” Hakim said at the AGM of Indian Chamber of Commerce.
He said that industry had to take a step forward by absorbing risks which they were capable of. Housing, Environment and Fire Services Minister Sovan Chatterjee said that by vesting three departments in him by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee a message was sent that a single window system had been created for clearing projects fast and without any delays. He also sought suggestions from the members of the chamber on how to improve the city’s infrastructure even better.
