Warsaw, April 15 (IANS) Indian IT giant Wipro has started its operations in Poland from the city of Wroclaw, close to the German border, officials said. The Bangalore-based IT company, which had a turnover of $5 billion in 2007, has employed more than 200 technicians to expand its business not only in Poland but all of Europe. The operations will be carried out in both English and German.
Poland is one of the favourite destinations of Indian IT companies. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Zanser have already made inroads into the European country.
J.J. Singh of the Indo-Polish Chamber of Commerce told IANS: “The previous (Indian) ambassador (to Poland) Anil Wadhwa went out of his way to convince Indian IT firms to select Poland as an investment destination after it joined the European Union. His active canvassing has brought the desired results for everyone to see.”
“We feel very happy that India has enhanced its profile (here) in the last four years. India is now on the radar screen for many Polish entrepreneurs and Indo-Polish trade will increase manifold in coming five years,” said Janusz Krzyzowski, president of the India-Polish Cultural Committee.
