New Delhi: Shaan-e-Pakistan, a fashion and lifestyle exhibition celebrating the craft and cultural legacy of India and Pakistan, has been rechristened as ‘Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore’ and will now be hosted in Lahore instead of Indian capital Delhi.
Huma Nassr will organise the event later this year.
“We are delighted to host the second edition of Shaan-e-Pakistan here in Pakistan itself and what better place than the epicentre of culture, cuisine, history and more which is Lahore.
“Our first show in Delhi was met with much support and an overwhelming enthusiasm from patrons as well as developed those business networking opportunities between Pakistani and Indian retailers. With ‘Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore’, we are looking to extend this even further, bringing a slice of India to Pakistan bringing them together on one platform,” Nassr said in a statement.
The three-day event will start on March 20, said a statement.
Shaan-e-Pakistan 2015 brought together Pakistani and Indian fashion designers, retail brands, models, culinary forces, handicraft industries, music, entertainment and lifestyle personalities on one platform and with the second edition, the organisers have planned more.
India-Pakistan ties had suffered because of Pathankot attack last month. Since then there have been efforts from both the countries to make relations better again. Both the nations share historic rich cultural ties. Narendra Modi had paid a surprise visit to the neighboring country in December last year
In past few years, the industry has seen a drastic growth
There are several reasons which are making this industry flourish in India at such a fast pace
For over a decade, the call center industry in India has reached at least US$710 million in revenue. Experts are expecting the industry to grow considerably in the coming years on account of a steady influx of foreign investors.
At present, there are a lot of call centers in India and nearly every multinational company has outsourced their customer service to the country. Call centers, after all, can help in terms providing better customer outreach and flexibility according to www.ameridial.com. More so, it has become essential for companies to set up call centers in India as a means to lessen costs and, more importantly, achieve better growth.
Indeed, it’s not so hard to think about the reasons why India has been preferred as a call center hub by a lot of foreign corporations. For a fact, these reasons are too obvious to begin with.
Ever since it lifted obstacles that have gotten in the way, the Indian government was able to prioritize the growth of the call center industry as an important economic driver, and it has continued to do so today. With such a strong backing from policymakers, the business process outsourcing environment in the country continues to prosper.
A competitive workforce
The first thing that’s on this list is the Indian workforce itself. A lot of companies are looking towards India not because it’s cheaper to set up a CRM arm there. It’s the Indian employees themselves that encourage companies to invest. What with a great wealth of skilled and professional workers, India is a powerhouse when it comes right down to supplying qualified individuals to the job of engaging clients from overseas.
But aside from the abilities of Indian workers along the lines of customer service, it is their capacity to speak English is what drives companies from Canada and the United States to expand their operations across the subcontinent. Language, after all, is an important factor of effective CRM, and with an Indian workforce, companies can get a competitive edge.
An effective training environment
One reason why Indian call center workers are valuable is that they are constantly trained. Nothing else can provide better results than a worker who has just updating his skills through re-training. For foreign investors, this has been one of the most notable reasons they prefer to establish a foothold in India.
Investments in IT
Apart from being a call center hub, India has also been regarded as one of the world’s most important tech hubs, standing side by side with Silicon Valley. Recent forays into the IT industry has introduced several innovations that have also impacted other industries as well. Call centers are not exempted from these disruptions since they are currently reaping the benefits of updated technologies and infrastructure.
There are still a lot of reasons that can very well define the successes of the Indian call center industry. What’s important is that the industry enjoys a large share of the global call center pie, providing employment and driving growth for the years to come.
