Kolkata: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who kicked off her three-day India visit from this historic city, Monday lauded the economic potential and geopolitical significance of eastern India.

This is my way of demonstrating our commitment to this part of the country," Hillary Clinton said at a gathering at the La Martiniere school for girls here.

"I think it`s a great tribute to India that the entire political development of this country is demonstrating the power that is at the core of the Indian dream," she said ahead of her meeting with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

"The more open India becomes over time..the greater the rise in standard of living and opportunity," she said.
