Outsourcing: India's Tata Eyes China Market As Part Of Drive To Go Global
Indian firms are looking to expand overseas: not just west, but also east to China, a market with huge domestic opportunities. One such firm is IT services group Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a company with some 160,000 employees in 42 countries. "The way it's panning out in China is that multinationals have used Indian businesses and IT companies, especially the top ones quite well," says Girija Pande, chairman of TCS Asia Pacific. "What they want to know is whether we are in China, and have we got the capability to manage their business in China."
