British Deputy High Commissioner Invited to Future Cities Workshop

Rishikesh Chanda, Bruce Bucknell and me: Yesterday 29th at Hidco
The new British Deputy High Commissioner HE Mr Bruce Bucknell visited Hidco yesterday and learnt about the growth trajectory of New Town Kolkata. He visited Rabindra Tirtha after the discussions. I told him of the British help in the past through the scoping study done by UKTI in 2012 and the inputs by Future Cities Catapult during 2015. I explained our strategy to prepare Kolkata and Bengal for deep investments by creating the right blend of plug-and-play infrastructure, digital backbone, social infrastructure, recreation and cultural zones etc so that we could attract and retain talent and investment. I informed of our efforts to build the IT, Financial and Arbitration Hub in Kolkata. He listened intently and agreed to join us for the Workshop on Future Cities to be held on 11th January 2016 at New Town.
