Mumbai: IT major Satyam Computer Services on said it will set up a training centre in Japan in a bid to strengthen its presence in that country.
The company would set up a Centre of Excellence(COE), named Kanzen, in Japan for training the country’s engineering graduates, it informed the Bombay Stock Exchange.
“This initiative is an innovation to traditional models of delivering offshore value to Japan from India. The process has been initiated to build bilingual talent pool in India, China and Japan,” Satyam North Asia Head Harsh Vardhan said.
While some of the Indian companies focussed on Japan have been working towards higher investments in the country that alone might not be the solution to the problem, as India has an acute shortage of bilingual engineers, he added.
The company has over 100 engineers operating in the country over the last three months. The team would work in programme managing deliveries out of China, Japan and India. Besides, Satyam has been successfully sourcing Japanese bilingual manpower from Vietnam.
Shares of Satyam were trading at Rs 439.75, up 0.07 per cent in the afternoon trade on the BSE. PTI JD BUN
