Following the Hannover Messe 2015, National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) has announced the launch of NASSCOM Germany Council. The council will focus on the interests of Germany GICs based in India and encourage a conclusive growth for both the nations.
The NASSCOM Germany Council was announced on the sidelines of the two-day GIC (Global In-House Center) conclave in Chennai, in the presence of R Chandrashekhar, President, NASSCOM, Gerd Hoefner, MD, Siemens Technology and Services. The aim of the council will be to provide an exclusive platform to German GICs, gauge various dynamics that will encourage these to grow and also address various challenges at policy level and other issues that effect the growth of Germany GICs in India.
R Chandrashekhar, president, NASSCOM said, “NASSCOM Germany Council will help us identify growth enablers and address various challenges for GICs in the country. With this initiative we also aim to undertake activities which will make India a favorable destination for more GICs in Germany willing to expand globally and recommend on policies which will enable a seamless ecosystem of operations to address immigration, taxation and partnering with the government.”
Gerd Hoefner, MD, Siemens Technology and Services said, “At this point, creating a forum for a German GIC Council is a good move. For companies like us that have been in India for over a decade, as well as new German firms looking at setting up GICs here, being a part of the NASSCOM Germany GIC Council will give us a platform to voice our opinions and suggestions to make the Indian environment more conducive to long-term business partnerships. I look forward to being a part of this forum that can help us be more successful and strengthen Indo-German collaboration in the Technology and IT& ITES sectors.”
