To increase staff strength in China to 4,000 in 3-4 years

CHENNAI: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), as a part of its global strategy, will focus on China and increase the employee's strength from 400 to 4,000 in the next three to four years. The company's joint venture with the Chinese government-owned National Development Reform Commission (NDRC) along with Microsoft will start operation from May.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, S. Ramadorai, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of TCS, said the existing operation of 400-people global development centre (GDC) would be folded up in the next 12 months and employees would be moved to the joint venture company. The joint venture would function as a single entity in China. The new venture would cater to China and multinational companies operating there, as well as the region, including Korea and Japan.
