Kenya and India to partner in ICT

16 September 2013, 15:50

Nairobi - A delegation from India’s National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) will from Tuesday tour Kenya in a visit that will provide Indian companies exposure to the Kenya information and communications technology (ICT) environment.

According to the Kenya ICT Board, another key objective of the two-day visit by the delegation would be to provide networking opportunities with the local companies.

The delegation comprises Indian ICT companies that are members of NASSCOM.
They are drawn from different ICT subsectors offering a broad range of information Technology Enabled Service (ITeS) in India and abroad.

Discussions will border around collaboration possibilities between Kenya and India, officials said.

“India has a mature ecosystem from which Kenya can learn and be a part of.
India has a vibrant private ICT sector which primarily drives the IT sector, well supported by the Government. Kenya on the other hand has a strong, solid Government support for ICT development and adoption from which India can have its learning.

"There are many opportunities, where both India and Kenya can work together for exploring not only domestic opportunities but also global regions. Kenya can be the first stop for India to explore Africa because of its receptive and welcoming nature while Kenya can offer a large multi-lingual workforce to Indian offshore development centre,” the ICT Board stated ahead of the tour by the NASSCOm delegation.

India is one of the most advanced digital economies in world having started some nearly 20 years ago and succeeded largely by servicing the American Market.

NASSCOM, headquartered in New Delhi, is the sector body that drives the ICT agenda in the Asian country.
