Building the Malabar region as the next sought after IT destination is one of the key focus of the Kerala Government, said Kerala IT Parks CEO, Hrishikesh Nair.

To achieve this, he said the present IT infrastructure including Cyberpark will not be sufficient but it is necessary to develop a digital infrastructure along with the social infrastructure to bring in more investment into the region.

Addressing the Malabar IT Conclave organised by CII-Kerala, he said that connectivity to the major IT cities like Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad from Kozhikode is also one of the critical aspects that needs to be developed to support the IT industry here.

Considering the global market trend in the IT sector, companies also need to focus on moving out of the services sector and expand to emerging technologies and consider product innovations to establish its presence globally.

The State Government is making a lot of positive moves to strengthen the IT fraternity and the draft IT policy is one of the biggest steps in this direction, he added.

The Malabar IT conclave was organized by CII with the aim to make Malabar the next IT Destination.
