New Delhi , Oct 12

THE National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) to encourage information exchangeon IT industry issues.

"A joint ITAC-Nasscom committee comprising senior officials from Indian and Canadian IT companies will manage the agreement. The committee aims to meet twice a year to discuss areas of common interest. It will undertake joint activities, including conferences and research projects, to advance the understanding of the business communities and the potential business opportunities in India and Canada," a Nasscom release said here.

The first joint event would be a conference in Toronto scheduled for November 14. Nasscom will hold a major international conference from February 15-17, 2006 in Mumbai, where a sizeable delegation from Canada is expected to participate.

According to Mr S. Ramadorai, Chairman, Nasscom, and CEO, Tata Consultancy Services, "Canada has been consistently ranked as a leader among the G-7 countries in the area of information and communication technologies (ICT).

The Indian ICT sector is keen to learn from Canada on the effective deployment of solutions within their country and also forge partnerships with Canadian companies as a near shore destination for the North American market."
