“..the choice of Kolkata is because of the very proactive interest of the State Government in promoting fresh investment and industrialization in West Bengal and the strong growth in several business sectors. From a Bangkok perspective Kolkata is also only a short 2-hour flight away. Actually almost the same distance as from New Delhi..“
This is part of a supposed communiqué from Michael Sternberg, the Danish Ambassador in Thailand, who earlier had a 5-year stint representing his country in India. Ambassador Sternberg is upbeat about business prospects in Kolkata, so he plans to lead members of the Danish Thai Chamber of Commerce to join him on a business trip to participate in the event, named appropriately “Danish Days in Kolkata“.
The event is slated for 2 days, April 19-20 next, and it goes to show that international business community is increasingly eager to work in Bengal.
