AsiaInfo International and Reliance Corporate IT Park have entered into a joint venture agreement to build and develop innovative new services for businesses in India and beyond.
The agreement was signed in Mumbai, India and will see the companies use their capabilities to create a next generation information technology software and services powerhouse to serve India and the surrounding region.
The venture will be headquartered in Mumbai, and will initially recruit staff from both companies as well as seeking to attract top talent both locally and internationally, growing to a few hundred people by early 2016.

AsiaInfo’s Dr Edward Tian said: “Combining with one of India’s largest and most progressive business groups, will create a technology powerhouse with the potential to help businesses across the region transform their IT infrastructures and compete on the global stage.”
