US web site for trade information

Our Bureau

KOLKATA, July 10

THE US Embassy has introduced, a Web site sponsored by the US Department of Commerce, for the benefit of Indian businesses. The site, according to Mr Samuel Kidder, Commercial Counsellor at the embassy, would enable companies to access the US markets.

Addressing members of the Indian Chamber of Commerce here, Mr Kidder said users who would be allowed to register free of charge, would be able to contact US companies to transact business with them on-line. The idea is to facilitate the use of the US Gov ernment's commercial programmes by Indian businesses.

Mr Kidder, who urged companies to use the site to their advantage, said the Web-based approach would increase the reach of businessmen in both countries. `` would be an ideal e-marketplace. It would enable business to happen more speedily and t ransparently'', he said.

Mr C. K. Dhanuka, president of the Indian Chamber of Commerce, said the site would provide local business and industry with ``a tool to enhance trade and investment linkages'' with US counterparts.

Against the backdrop of changes in West Bengal's industrial scenario, it would be important for US companies to gauge the new opportunities that are unfolding in the State, Mr Dhanuka added.
