ESC spearheads India ICT to boost bilateral trade [Khaleej Times (United Arab Emirates)]
(Khaleej Times (United Arab Emirates) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC) is all set on ensuring Indian participation in various ICT trade fairs in the UAE and boosting bilateral trade between India and the Middle East.
"ESC has been facilitating Indian participation on a regular basis at Gitex in Dubai and Comex in Oman to take advantage of the booming IT market in the Gulf and leveraging that association for getting businesses for Indian IT companies from a multitude of large global corporations, which are executing projects in the region," said Kamal Vachani, regional director for the Middle East, ESC.
"Gitex is continuing to emerge as the largest and the most impressive ICT event of its kind in the Middle East. Naturally, India has a great stake in the booming Middle East, Africa, Asia and European markets for which Dubai is the gateway. Thus the event provides the participating Indian ICT companies with opportunities for scouting the expanding Middle East market," said Vachani.
"In 2013 at Gitex Dubai, 35 Indian ICT companies exhibited at the India Pavilion. This is indicative of the growing interests of the Indian companies in the Middle East region," noted D. K. Sareen, executive director, ESC.
"Additionally, as a part of its Focus Middle East Program, ESC invited a good number of ICT delegates from the Gulf region to participate at the 14th edition of Indiasoft held in Mumbai in the last week of November this year," added Vachani.
ESC will be now organising Indian IT companies' repeat participation in the 24th International IT, Telecom & Technology Exhibition Comex 2014 scheduled to be held from April 7-11, 2014 at the Oman International Exhibition Centre in Muscat.
The Middle East region is one of the fastest growing ICT markets in the world. High growth prevails across all segments, and the market is driven by economic diversification and various e-government initiatives in sectors like finance, communications and manufacturing. The region continues to enjoy solid growth rates despite global slowdown. A number of Indian companies, therefore, find Dubai an ideal location for enhancing their businesses.
