Sydney/22 Jan, 2018
I enjoyed the Darling Harbour Cruise on board renowned Sydney Show Boat & dinner with the Honorable Chief Minister of Chhattishgarh, Dr Raman Singh ji and his wife Shrimati Veena Singh ji in Sydney. The delegation accompanying him was there too along with manager of Air India Sydney (Sujoy Kumar) and CEOs of SBI Sydney (Pranay Kumar), Bank of Baroda Sydney (Kavita Singh) and Union Bank of India Sydney (Pankaj Kumar). India Tourism Chief in Sydney, Kanchan Kukreja, was there too.
The evening was organized in the Honour of the visiting CM and his delegation by the Consulate General of India. Acting CG, Mr Chandra A and Consul, Mr SK Verma were obviously there.
I had plenty of opportunity to interact with the Honourable CM and the accompanying delegation. Mrs Veena Singh is from Rewa/Satna background and knows my part of Bundelkhand well. What a down-to-earth people they are! It was such a pleasure to meet them and interact with them.
Chhattishgarh is one of the top 5 states in ease to do business in India and is a mineral/mining hub of India. It produces plenty of electricity and exports it to other states. It has borders with 7 states, which makes it an attractive place to establish business and invest.
The Honorable CM is in Australia currently, leading a business delegation. He has been to Melbourne, Victoria , Brisbane, Queensland and is now in Sydney, NSW before flying back to India on Wednesday.
FYI, I post Dr Raman Singh ji’s interview with Pallavi Jain of SBS Hindi. https://www.facebook.com/dryadusingh/posts/1709323072467248
