Infosys plans 500 new jobs in US’s Rhode Island by 2022
Infosys President Ravi Kumar says they chose Rhode Island because of its ‘educational institutions, design-rich environment and economic development tools’
Providence, Rhode Island (US): Outsourcing and IT company Infosys Ltd is opening an office in Rhode Island. Democratic Governor Gina Raimondo announced Monday that the company chose Providence for its new design and innovation hub. She says it’ll create 500 jobs in the state by 2022.
Infosys President Ravi Kumar says they chose Rhode Island because of its “educational institutions, design-rich environment and economic development tools.”
Raimondo says residents are well-equipped for the new jobs because of state investments in education and job training. Her office says Infosys plans to apply for tax credits through new economic development programmes.
Infosys announced earlier this year plans for an expansion in the US that’s projected to create 10,000 jobs. It’s also establishing new offices in Indiana and North Carolina.
