India to Help Morocco Set up IT Hub: Indian Newspaper

New Delhi  -  
Pune-based Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) will be helping Morocco in setting up a Centre for Excellence in IT (CEIT), Indian newspaper "The Indian Express" reported.

The decision was announced by M J Akbar, MoS, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), the source said, adding that as part of the joint venture, the C-DAC will initially provide training to Morocco’s IT experts in India before the services are expanded at the centre which will be established in Casablanca.

Pune is the second largest city in the Indian state of Maharashtra after Mumbai.

“The agreement comes as part of the MEA’s collaborations with Morocco. C-DAC will train the IT professionals in India and they, in turn, will extend the training to others at the newly-established CEIT. We will also design IT-based programmes and courses for them,” Hemant Darbari, director general, C-DAC, told The Indian Express.

For more than six decades, the two countries have been partnering to address various issues.

Highlighting the times in which IT is growing powerful, Akbar said that the government’s today need to respond to people’s needs, particularly the young, twice more than what was present earlier.

“So, we need to develop technology that can be used to reinvent the government as an efficient platform offering incorruptible services. Along with this, we need to see how an ecosystem can be created to help people and governments engage in this fast-changing environment,” the MoS stated.

Earlier, the C-DAC had signed similar IT-based collaboration agreements with Vietnam, Kazakhstan and Armenia.
