SAMSUNG Establishes Software Center in India

.SISO to develop application software for semiconductors, information systems, multimedia products and computers
.At least 20 Indian engineers to be hired by the end of this year
.Center to promote advanced technolgy exchanges between Korea and India.

Samsung electronics Co. (SEC) has set up Samsung India Software Operations (SISO) in Bangalore, India, opening a new chapter in advanced technology exchanges between Korea and India.

SISO is the first R&D center to be established in India by a Korean company. The center will hire local engineers to work on joint developmet projects. The locally-hired technicians will also receive specialized training from SEC and dispatched to work at the Head Office in Korea.

SEC plans call for developing key research centers covering application softwares for four main areas -- semiconductors, information systems, multimedia products and computers. As part of the plan, at least 20 Indian engineers will be hired by the end of this year to work at SISO, while SEC will send at least ten of its Korean researchers to India.

According to Jung-Yeol Kim, head of SISO, "we will invest an additional US$5 million by 1998 and plan to promote joint research projects with advanced local organisations such as the Indian Institute of Science (IISc)
and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIF). Our ultimate goal is to develop low-cost software that is appropriate for local markets.

The Bangalore area, known as "Asian's Silicon Valley," is a hub for high technology in India. The Indian government has designated the region as a "Software Technology Complex " and is inducing leading overseas companies to set up operations there. Already, such powerhouses as Motorola, HP, Oracle, Siemens, IBM and TI have come to Bangalore. SEC's arrival is expected to bring other Korean enterprises.
