CII INVITES CHAMLING TO NEW YORK

GANGTOK, June 10: The Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) has invited chief minister Pawan Chamling to the India Week exhibition for northeast states at New York from September 23 to 26.

According to reports, Mr. Chamling has accepted the invitation.

CII Northeast States Chapter chairman Dipannkar Chatterjee and deputy director general Subroto Neogy have said that products from NE states would be exhibited for first time in the US. The five-day festival will include interaction with American investors.

To encourage industry in the NE states, the Centre has already waived tax for ten years for the investors who will invest in the region.

CII is organising an industrial trade fair here in Gangtok early December. It is going to set up a full-fledged regional office here as well.

Mr. Chamling is reported to have asked CII to promote Sikkim tourism and encourage investment in the State. He also urged CII to pressurise the Central Government to expand the Sino-Indian trade list from the Nathula border with inclusion of Sikkim products, and expedite bilateral agreement between the two countries to start tourism through the border, thereby reducing the travel time to the Potala Palace at Lhasa and Kailash Mansorovar Lake.

Mr. Chamling has also assured to come to Kolkata soon to interact with investors, it is learnt.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
