‘Chinese PM Sees "Asian Century" for Information Technology Industry’
(VOA | April 20, 2005)
Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao toured India's technology hub,
Bangalore, Sunday urging both sides to set aside their historic
rivalry and instead work together.
While visiting India's largest software exporter, Tata Consultancy
Services, Mr. Wen said India has the advantage in software and
China in hardware. He said that if the two countries join hands,
they will be able to launch — what he called — the "Asian century"
of information technology.
Mr. Wen also toured the Indian Space Research Organization and the
Bangalore offices of China's largest telecommunication equipment
maker, Huawei Technologies.
During a visit at the Indian Institute of Science and Technology,
a Tibetan youth climbed up a tower and shouted anti-China slogans and
tossed down pamphlets. On Saturday, Tibetan youths staged a protest
in front of the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi against Chinese rule
On Monday, Mr. Wen will travel to New Delhi for talks with Prime
Minister Singh on border issues and bilateral trade.
