Times of India: Avasant’s CEO Speaks on Global Trends
Times of India Kevin Parikh, CEO, Avasant Some five years ago, Africa was not seen as an area with any potential. Today, on an average, businesses there grow 50%. Government is extremely pro-active, there is robust economic growth, large number of e-government projects, increased focus on education, security and healthcare. So there is huge requirement for ICT. Oil and gas sectors are also adopting technology. I'm excited to see the change that is taking place in Africa, particularly the pace of growth in countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda.
