Jeong Gyeong-won, President of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) announced that it has decided to build the ODC in Bengaluru, india, at the “ODC Establishment and Pilot Project Implementation Seminar” which was held at its Seoul office on June 17, NIPA surveyed Korean companies to figure out their demands over the last two months and is currently looking for an Indian partner for this ODC project. The list of local partner candidates includes Wipro, Tata Consultancy Services, and L&T Infotech that entered the Korean market, engaging in various business activities.
