West Bengal has the potential to become the logistics capital of India, said Eric Garcetti, the US ambassador to India, during an interactive session with members of the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) here on Thursday.

Garcetti pointed out that US companies like Amazon have already invested in logistics here. “The state is not only strategically located in India, but is also well positioned as a gateway between Southeast Asia, South Asia and East Asia,” he added.

The US Ambassador met with Chief Advisor to West Bengal Prime Minister Amit Mitra on Wednesday. Garcetti said the US is interested in investing in the state’s infrastructure. A US toll company is connected to the Second Vivekananda Bridge over the Ganges, a vital infrastructure for the city for 16 years.

“There are close ties between West Bengal and American companies,” he added.
