West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday met Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani at his Antilla residence in Mumbai and requested him to invest in her state.
Banerjee, who is in Mumbai to attend a business conclave on Wednesday, had a one-and-a-half hour meeting with Mr Ambani soon after arriving in the city.
Banerjee later told reporters that Mr Ambani would attend the Bengal Global Business Summit or BGBS organised by her government in January in Kolkata. “They are already investing in the state. I told him to invest more. The good news is that he has agreed to take part in the BGBS,” she said.
Banerjee is likely to meet several industrialists to persuade them to invest in her state as well as to invite them to BGBS.
