Thiruvananthapuram: The Group of Technology Companies (GTECH), a body representing the software industry in the State, has announced a slew of initiatives aimed at the accelerated growth of the IT sector. Outlining a roadmap for the revamped GTECH, president-elect V.K. Mathews said the fraternity would work closely with the government to promote Kerala as an IT destination.
The industry is eminently suitable for a State like Kerala where the availability of land is at a premium and the density of population the highest. The IT industry has one of the lowest land-to-employee ratio. It is neither polluting nor power intensive and offers huge employment opportunities, he said.
