Inaugurating the six-day business conclave in Kolkata, organized by the Department of Micro & Small Scale Enterprises and Textiles, Government of West Bengal, the Chief Minister said the government has generated over 200,000 employment opportunities through the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) sector in the last two years.
 
She said that in future, the government plans to generate 10 million employment opportunities each in the textile sector as well as in the MSME sector.
 
The state government will adopt a new public procurement policy, wherein preference would be given to the MSME and the textile sector for buying certain items like textile, etc. for government procurement.
 
Ms. Banerjee gave a new slogan “Shilpa karun, Bangla gorun”, which means ‘set up industries, build Bengal’.
