The bustling metropolis of SIliguri is often referred to as “the gateway of North Eastern India.” Due to the lack of a free-trade agreement between India and Bangladesh, all land trade connecting India’s North East to the rest of the country must pass through Siliguri.

North Bengal’s most important commercial hub, it sits at the crossroads of 3 international borders (with China, Bangladesh, and Nepal) and a number of state borders. Siliguri’s key industries— Tea, Timber, Transport, and Tourism—have helped propel it to the forefront of India’s economic growth.

Companies in Siliguri have ranged from those involved in the city’s historic tea and timber industries to those in the automotive, real estate, finance, information technology, chemical manufacture, organic fertiliser, and many other fields.
