September 24, 2013 11:24 pm | Updated June 02, 2016 02:47 pm IST - MUMBAI:

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has tied up with Saudi Aramco and General Electric (GE) to set up the first all-female business process outsourcing (BPO) centre in Saudi Arabia, creating job opportunities for 3,000 women.

TCS and GE will own 76 per cent and 24 per cent, respectively, of the equity in the new venture, TCS said on Tuesday in a statement.

The centre in Riyadh will be staffed by Saudi females, and will start by catering to Saudi Aramco and GE as anchor clients.

It will help localise the BPO industry in Saudi Arabia, it added.

“The Tata Group has a long history of encouraging women to

achieve their potential and contribute to the community and we are delighted to work

with Saudi Aramco and GE,” said Cyrus Mistry, Chairman of Tata Group.
