China has invited Indian IT and business process outsourcing companies to set up more units in its IT parks and build them up at par with those in cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Pune.
A delegation from Wuxi (Wuxi Municipal Communist Party of China Committee), an emerging economic zone in the Yangtze river delta, met representatives of software industries here and expressed a desire to convert their district into a "Bangalore of China".
Yang Weize, secretary of Wuxi, said: "If China is the factory of the world, India has become the 'office of the world'. This is what we want to do for ourselves. ..."
The Chinese delegation also visited New Delhi where it met representatives of the National Institute of Information Technology (NIIT).
