While Bangalore was known as garden city, Brampton was known as the city of flowers, Ms. Susan Fennel said
Bangalore Mayor D. Venkatesh Murthy had a special visitor on Monday. Susan Fennel, his counterpart from the Canadian city Brampton, met him and discussed infrastructure development and possibility of entering into a memorandum of understanding for the same.
Accompanied by members of the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, she said she had fulfilled a long-pending desire of visiting Bangalore. While Bangalore was known as garden city, Brampton was known as the city of flowers, Ms. Fennel said.
“Bangalore is known to be an IT capital and I have always wanted to visit [here]. I feel there are many similarities between Brampton and Bangalore.”
Ms. Fennel said industrialists from Brampton were interested in investing in Bangalore and she herself wished for mutual understanding and business development in IT between the two cities.
Inviting Mr. Murthy to Brampton, she said that both cities could enter into a “Friendship City” understanding that would be mutually beneficial.
Mr. Murthy assured her of extending support to Canadian industrialists who wish to invest in the city.
