BANGALORE: India's top IT companies need to open new facilities in the U.S to create more employment opportunities for locals and to change the perception that they are job-takers, a leading US business forum member has said.
'And if I were Wipro, or Infosys, I would do my level best to open up virgin facilities in the United States where you can create jobs so that Americans in Arkansas, in Nebraska, in every constituency where important Senators and Congressmen sit, at least can point to the fact that India is a job-creator and not job-taker', he said.
Somers, who had previously worked as Unocal Corporation's Chief Executive in India, said the impression in the US is that India is 'next China' and "oh, my God, all jobs are going overseas (to India). We have to mitigate that concern".
We can't let that perception take grip", he added. Somers hailed the UID (Uniform Identity Card) project, saying it's going to broaden the tax base and completely rid the rot in the public distribution system.
He said the UID introduction will also help in stemming leakages and pilferage and eventually help the growth to become 'inclusive and democratic".
"It's possibly the greatest democratic experiment underway anywhere on the world at this moment of time", he said.

Actually yeah, Bangladesh is currently one of the top places to outsource to and believe it or not Africa is seen as possible up-and-coming place to offshore too. ...
