Bengal Global Business Summit will witness beginning of a new relationship between PNG and India!
The Arrival of Spring
In Kolkata, it’s surely the spring in the truest sense as it has been learnt that the honourable High Commissioner of Papua New Guinea to India, HE, Paulias Korni, OBE, is going to arrive in the city of joy to attend the Bengal Global Business Summit which is slated to take place on 20th and 21st April. He will be accompanied by Madam Joyce Korni and a business delegation headed by ace tax consultant, Sujoy Maitra, the founder of AdzGuru Pty Ltd, which is highly rated as a trade connector in this part of the world and credited with introducing trade connecting services in India, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Fiji.
IND-PNG Bilateral Trade
India and the dream island nation of Papua New Guinea possess strong bilateral ties that has only grown strong over the years. The fastest growing economy in the world has developed bonds with the booming Papua New Guinea market that transcends all sorts of barriers. This move is likely to solidify the already deep economic ties between the two countries on stronger foundations.
The Bengal Global Business Summit is indeed a huge platform which has stretched its wings with the passage of time. It has turned out to be a melting pot so far as business trade is concerned. Investors, owners of various business enterprises, international delegations across the globe come to Kolkata around this time of the year to share ideas and facilitate the business trade in the state of West Bengal. In this regard, one must mention that the government of West Bengal under the leadership of Smt. Mamata Banerjee has been instrumental to bringing the best of the corporate minds and business professionals through this signature event. The summit, which was planned by eminent economist Shree Amit Mitra, former Finance Minister of government of West Bengal and the erstwhile president of FICCI, has managed to attract investment from several parts of the world since its very inception. This time, a massive investment from Papua New Guinea is likely to happen thanks to Mr. Paulias Korni and his business delegation.
HE, Paulias Korni, who took the charge of his office in May 2018, happens to be a social worker. He has contributed a lot to the upliftment of the downtrodden people back in Papua New Guinea. The man who was awarded with the OBE in 2017, has done wonders along with his better half Madam Joyce Korni in the form of providing constant support to the thousands of coffee farmers in the coffee rich and cricket frenzy country. Hence, they are supposed to join hands with several organizations working in Kolkata in order to help out the marginalized people.
Sujoy Maitra, the founder and CEO of AdzGuru, has gone to a great extent to pull this off. It was his brainchild to make this move happen. Maitra, who has his roots in Bengal, wants to generate employment in his homeland. In a bid to payback to his city, he has already launched a green drive courtesy his slow fashion start-up, Ecolook.
In the month of January, HE, Paulias Kroni and AdzGuru led by Sujoy, made the historic move of launching Papua New Guinea coffee in India. So, Kolkata awaits for another epoch-making move by the duo which will broaden the horizon of new businesses and employments in the state.
