CII reply to outsourcing debate in USA

Sunil Bharti Mittal with S. S. Mehta, Director-General was addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Saturday after a six-member CEO delegation returned from the U.S.

CII said to American leaders and the U.S. business community that the outsourcing debate should not become an India-centric as it could hurt cordial relations between the two nations.

Mr. Mittal, who is also President of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), was recently in the U.S. as head of Indian CEO's delegation. Mr. Sunil Bharti Mittal said the Indian delegation told every senior political leader, U.S. government officials and business heads it met how the small issue was being exaggerated.

Indian CEOs have also asked their American counterparts to realize that outsourcing was good for the growth of the U.S. economy, besides highlighting how the reverse outsourcing trend was benefiting major U.S.-based companies. They told that how skilled manpower and knowledgebase is helping USA.
