- INAUGURATION OF THE CALCUTTA GALLERY, 14TH SEPTEMBER 2016, CHAMBER PREMISES
On the occasion of The Bengal Chamber’s AGM on 14th September 2016, The Bengal Chamber’s very own Calcutta Gallery
was inaugurated by Dr. Amit Mitra, Hon’ble Minister-in-Charge, Commerce & Industries, Finance & Excise, Industrial
Reconstruction & Public Enterprises, Government of West Bengal. The Calcutta Gallery, dedicated to our Eternal City, is
a pictorial journey down the hallowed pathways of the industrial and business history of Kolkata. The transformation of
three villages by the Hooghly into a colossal metropolis is fascinating, awe inspiring and magical. The Gallery is a first-ofits-
kind initiative, which portrays the 325 years of progress of Calcutta as a leading city of the world through a collection
of rare photographs of the iconic City. It is permanently housed in the Chamber premises.
