By bringing the technology giant to their hometown, the management aims to not only bolster the local economy but also provide an opportunity for the talented workforce to contribute to their community.
In addition to the immediate economic impact, the establishment of Infosys in Visakhapatnam holds great promise for the city’s IT sector.
