"The GIC-HDFC, one of the world's largest funds, entered into a joint venture for investing $32.5 million (Rs.200 crore) in the Kolkata Riverside Development project. This is not a memorandum of understanding but an official commercial signature," Mitra told media persons after the summit.
On other projects, Mitra said InfraCo Asia has given a letter of intent worth Rs.1,000 crore to the Keventers Agro Intra Company for a food park at Dankuni in Hooghly district.
"Singapore's Compass Group which deals in port designing, has signed a joint venture with Axis Technologies from Bengal. Besides, OBT Inc. and William Sonoma, India have signed a letter of intent to showcase Bengal's art and craft in their 600 outlets in various parts of the world," Mitra said.
He said the Sanderson Group of Australia, which has a holding company in Singapore, will go for a joint venture with the Ravi Auto Group from Kolkata to set up a world class amusement park.
Addressing the summit, Banerjee apprised industrialists about her government's new textile policy, a public-private partnership policy, a new IT policy as well as industry policy.
