After striking a partnership with Chinese city of Dalian – a technology hub – last year, IT industry body Nasscomis going to strike a second partnership with the city of Guiyang on Monday to focus on collaboration in Big Data and Analytics.
As part of the partnership with the Guiyang Municipal government, agreements worth 25 million Yen between Chinese customers and Indian service providers are also going to be announced. The pilot projects, launched on the Sino Indian Digital Collaborative Opportunities Plaza (SIDCOP) platform, would be executed over the next year.
In the coming months, an IT Corridor within Guiyang HiTech city will be created to specifically promote Big Data and Analytics projects. The government of Guiyang is not only offering a host of policy benefits and incentives such as rentfree office space along with other tax concessions but will aid Indian service providers – who are members of Nasscom— in bagging government contracts.
Gagan Sabharwal, senior director, Global Trade Development, Nasscom, said the platform in Guiyang will promote co-create culture with the Chinese industry and advance mutual leadership in the global innovation ecosystem.
