Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee welcomed Italian assistance in areas of joint interest, including leather, while addressing the “Indo-Italian Synergy: Destination West Bengal” forum here on Tuesday.

Bhattacharjee, sharing the dais with the visiting Italian Prime Minister, Romano Prodi, said The regional leather industry is a major partner for Indian leather goods production and the leather complex (at Bantola) can benefit greatly through Italian expertise.

Besides leather and food processing, Italian businesses are exploring sectors of mutual interest too.
