Colombo, Feb 5 : HCL Technologies on Wednesday signed an agreement with the Board of Investment (BOI) of Sri Lanka, to set up a global delivery centre in the Sri Lankan capital.
A key part of HCL’s business and development strategy in Sri Lanka will be to generate local employment and provide the right skilling programmes that will augment the growth of the knowledge services industry in the island.
"We are one of the best destinations for providing off-shore services for Information Technology Enabled Service (ITEs) as well as services related to Finance and Accounting, Legal, Insurance, Banking and Telecommunications," said BOI Director General Champika Malalgoda.
Collaborating with the Sri Lankan investment board, HCL’s local entity – HCL Technologies Lanka (Private) Limited -- will implement its Work Integrated Education Programme to foster growth by actively cooperating with local ICT and engineering institutions to develop and train the island’s talent pool.
Through this delivery centre in Colombo global clients will be provided with valuable services in the areas comprising applications and system integration services, infrastructure services and digital process operations. (UNI)
