Under the aegis of the Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC), more than 40 Indian IT companies from both the hardware and software sector are exhibiting at Gitex this year. “This is one of the largest participations by Indian IT companies in any IT event around the world during 2004,” said Kamal Vachani, regional director of ESC for the UAE and Middle East. Vachani believes that in the quest for cost-effective solutions, the Middle East holds great potential for Indian IT companies. The Indian IT industry has already made significant inroads into key Middle East verticals including communications, government, hospitality, transportation, and oil and gas. “The participation at Gitex allows for the expansion of business opportunities in newer areas of development and there can not be a better platform other than Gitex Dubai to assist Indian companies in creating a niche for their IT products and services,” adds Vachani. Electronics and computer software and services now accounts for more than 15% of India’s total exports. The sector is worth more than US$14bn a year in exports to the Indian economy. The companies driving India’s thriving IT exports are out in force in the India Pavilion. IT hardware on display includes computer peripherals, video games, cables and printer cartridges.
