VISAKHAPATNAM: The Computer Society of India (CSI), which is one of the biggest NGOs in the country, would come up with some initiatives to promote IT movement in Visakhapatnam as well as other parts of the state to make it an IT hub. As a part of this exercise, the CSI is planning to organise  workshops, conferences, seminars and other activities.

Addressing a press conference here Tuesday, chairman of CSI Visakhapatnam chapter and Director (Commercial) RINL Chand spoke about the organisation’s initiatives and its past achievements.  The 48th annual International conference of CSI was organised in Vizag in association with RINL. Speaking on the occasion, Chand stressed the need to develop the IT structure in Visakhapatnam through promotional activities. Chand said over 4,000 engineering graduates pass out every year from the city. There was a need to focus and build the capabilities in them through educational programmes. Chand said that the IT industry was expanding in the city.

Visakhapatnam was presently contributing just Rs.1,600 crore to IT exports. But the scenario would change in the near future. Chand said in the past one decade, CSI Vizag and RINL had jointly organised many national and Internationmal conferences which had helped the professionals.

He said that CSI Vizag had more than 700 active members and 24 vibrant student chapters.
