As chairman of the DoE-Nasscom planning committee, K.V. Ramani had made several recommendations towards achieving an eightfold increase in India’s software exports during the Ninth Plan period.
Now, as the new president of the National Association of Software and Service Companies, his growth strategy, predictably, sounds like his earlier report. Ramani wants India to be the “software capital of the world,” and adds, “Our endeavour would be to increase the size of the Indian software industry, both in qualitative and quantitative terms. Nasscom will help make India more competitive in the global market.”
The thrust of Nasscom’s strategy will be on expansion and consolidation of existing markets, such as the U.S. and Europe, and looking at new markets like Japan, Korea and South Africa.
