The 59th Annual General Meeting of the Federation was held on 14th January 2019 when I was re-elected as the President of the Federation for the term 2018-19. I thank all members of the Federation for  reposing their faith and confidence in me and my full team  and solicit their support and co-operation in our effort to take the Federation to the next level.

In last one year ,  the Federation’s image has gone up further, especially after the successful completion of Indplas’18 exhibition. At the bureaucratic and ministerial level, IPF has become a respectful organization pursuing its goal for the promotion of plastics industry in West Bengal. In our  Indplas’18 exhibition ,respected  ministers bureaucrats , senior corporate executives , foreign delegates , dignitaries of the industries from pan India , school principles & students  visited the exhibition which itself speaks of the growing image of the Federation. I congratulate my Exhibition chairman , Mr Ashok Jajodia for taking this exhibition to Global standards & The entire team of EOC for putting their smart work to support him .

 

Bengal Global Business Summit 2019 (BGBS) will be held from February 7 – 8, 2019 at Biswa Bangla Convention Centre, New Town, Kolkata. Through this summit the State government aspires to create a blue print that will explore new possibilities of creating a resurgent Bengal. On the economic front the State’s position has greatly improved in the last six years. It is now the 4th largest economy in India, up from the 7th position. The State’s GDP has doubled in the last six years and growing at the rate of 15.5% (2016-17) which is higher than the national average. The State’s position has also greatly improved in its ease of doing business.

This time , once again , the Federation has been invited to participate in the BGBS. Details of the event will be emailed to members once the same is received by the Federation.Same As last BGBS , IPF shall again play a pivotal role on the sectoral session on Chemicals, Petrochemicals & Downstream (Plastics/Polymers).
