Kolkata, May 24: Industry captains in West Bengal are unanimous that the Mamata Banerjee-led government should focus on developing infrastructure to attract investment and land availability is not as big an issue as is made out to be.

They feel that the government, fresh from a new mandate, has sufficient land at its disposal and the priority is to develop the required infrastructure.

"Land is not as major an issue as is made out to be because the government has adequate land banks. It must now develop the required infrastructure for the land banks to attract investment," former CII national president and CMD, TIL, Sumit Mazumder told PTI.

Mazumder expects the momentum for industrialisation to gather pace, going forward. "Mamata Banerjee can continue the positive actions initiated but which could not be completed, and the focus on rural development must continue," he said.

Assocham President Sunil Kanoria lists ease of doing business and stronger land policies as part of the industry wish-list. FICCI president Harshavardhan Neotia said, "Perception is often harsher than reality and I believe West Bengal will soon shed its so-called perception issues."

CII, West Bengal, chairman Anil Vaswani suggested that the government should lay emphasis on sustainable agricultural practices and enhancement of export basket in order to attract investment to the state.
