Ban On Offshoring Activities Against Spirit Of Free Trade: ASSOCHAM

India, Sep 9, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) The ban imposed on offshoring of government IT and back office projects to locations such as India by state of OHIO in US is against the spirit of free world trade and amounts to creating trade barriers which will go against United States of America. In a statement, ASSOCHAM President Dr. Swati Piramal said that states that have resorted to outsourcing of IT related services benefited the most out of it and banning offshoring of IT projects will adversely affect the economy of the country concerned. Offshoring creates job opportunities not only for destinations countries but also to countries which outsource such services and therefore OHIO should re-consider its decision.
