New Delhi: The government has sought a report from the Indian embassy in Beijing regarding an Indian national who was detained in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.

“I have asked for a report from our embassy in China,” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Friday.

She was responding to a tweet which said that an Indian businessman who was working in Shenzhen with a resident permit and a business license was taken by police on Tuesday.

“Wife has been released after questioning, but my friend is detained with a notice of 30 days,” the tweet said.

The tweet also said that the businessman’s wife was alone in Shenzhen and the Chinese authorities were not allowing her to contact him. (IANS)

India is a very attractive market with high brand recognition for a computer hardware producer like HP, said HP Inc’s President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Tian Chong Ng.

The Asia Pacific region — in which India is a key focus area — has been the fastest growing for HP and provided 16 per cent revenue growth last year.

In Q1 of FY2019 it registered 8 per cent growth year-on-year, said Ng in the course of the HP Reinvent 2019 conference, the company’s largest global partner event.

One reason for that is — India – and also the Asia Pacific region — tick marks on demographics trends which provide clear wins for HP: rapid urbanisation and more millennials are joining the work force.

While HP is very positive on India and recognises its potential, there are no plans yet for setting up a manufacturing base in India. Ng said it already has a manufacturing base in China apart from others in Vietnam, Thailand and Japan.

“There is an existing ecosystem in China and we don’t have plans for setting up a manufacturing base in India, he said.

One focus area is the 3D printer, which offers HP great opportunity. Construction and automotive sectors are the focus areas here. Meanwhile, an MoU has been signed with the Andhra Pradesh government.

“To be successful in India demands that we understand it,” he said.

HP is also pushing gaming in a big way. However, this has not led to any thinking for manufacturing mobile phones in India, despite the high number of gamers in the country spurred by affordable android phones and cheap data.

“Our strength is the PC business and we offer a whole family of products in that space,” Ng said. (IANS)
