Kerala IT to Explore Australian Opportunities

 

Kerala IT to Explore Australian Opportunities

 

Kerala IT is all set to explore opportunities in the Australian market. Hitherto a comparatively unexplored market by Indian IT companies, Australia seems to have signed some pretty great deals with seven companies in the State’s IT parks. The deals are touted as having the potential to create at least 200 new IT job opportunities in Kerala.

 

The deals were signed during a visit organized by the Group of Technology Companies (GTECH) to Australia. 30 more deals are expected to be signed soon. During CeBIT Australia 2013, the Kerala IT team, comprising IT Principal Secretary P.H. Kurian, Technopark Chief Executive Officer K. G. Girish Babu, and CEOs of 17 small and medium-sized IT companies, over 100 business-to-business meetings with companies in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Gold Coast were held. A few Australian companies have expressed interest in setting up operations in Kerala’s IT parks.

 

 According to Mr. Anoop P. Ambika, Secretary, GTech, the global meltdown, which has severely and adversely affected businesses in Europe makes Australia a “promising market for Kerala companies.”

 

In the meantime, Trivandrum Technopark will soon sign a contract with the incubation centre at the Australian Technology Park, Sydney, under which Kerala companies will get space at the centre for six months, free of cost. Kerala IT has already initiated talks with the R&D unit of Monash University in Melbourne for collaboration.
