Calcutta: Poland has formed a working group, comprising representatives of the government and industry, to prepare a business strategy focussed on Bengal.
This comes after a memorandum of understanding was signed earlier this year at the Bengal Global Business Summit between the state and the Silesian province of Poland for exploring opportunities in mining and power.
“The next step has been taken. A Bengal project group has been formed. The ministries involved include energy, foreign affairs, entrepreneurship and technology. There are business partners and chambers of commerce. This group is entirely focussed on Poland-Bengal co-operation,” said Adam Burakowski, the Polish ambassador to India.
The ambassador added that a delegation from Bengal is expected to participate in the European Economic Congress, scheduled to be held in Poland from May 14. “There is a special panel on Poland-Bengal business and co-operation,” said Burakowski.
