Our CEO and MD, Mr Viresh Oberoi, has been elected as the Chairman of CII Eastern Region. His name was announced at the first meeting of the reconstituted Eastern Regional Council held in Kolkata on Saturday.

Mr Oberoi said: "The nation is going through challenging times where double-digit GDP growth has become a distant dream. In such times, we need to chart a growth trajectory by converting every hurdle into an opportunity. The role of this region in India's industrial growth is undeniable and I believe this resource-rich region has the potential to drive the economic turnaround of the nation. CII, on its part, will continue to drive this growth story as a facilitator."
