BHUBANESWAR: “Odisha will soon be the most preferred destination in the country for investments on software products and services emerging from the USA,” said IT Secretary, Sanjeev Mishra. He was referring to the tie-up between the State Government and Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, California at the TiE conclave.
Addressing the ‘Digital Marketing Workshop’ organised by NASSCOM and Confederation of Information Technology Enterprises (CITE), Mishra said unlike the industrial and manufacturing sectors, development of infrastructure for the IT industry is being welcomed from all quarters of the political spectrum.
Mishra revealed that several offers from electronics and hardware companies from Taiwan and Singapore to start their operations out of the State were received by the Government. Scrutiny on these offers has started, he added.
Regional Head of NASSCOM East, Nirupam Chaudhari said the company is promoting emerging companies in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities. He also briefed the delegates on the schedule and agenda of NASSCOM Product Conclave (NPC)-2014, to be held at Kolkata in June.
Speaking at the conclave, Regional Head of NASSCOM East, Nirupam Chaudhari said NASSCOM has been instrumental in supporting start-ups and mid-sized software firms comprehensively. It is promoting emerging companies in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities, added Chaudhari. He urged the stakeholders of the industry to prioritise and invest on research and development by catering to the service needs of the West.
