IT minister’s Message – Cyberpark
Kerala is spearheading the development of ICT and infrastructure with the aim of pursuing an IT driven economy. The IT parks in our state will play a significant role in the economic development with a remarkable thrust on digital infrastructure development. Moreover, this will inevitably open up a gateway towards large opportunities. For facilitating the overall development of the state, extensive use of digital technology is envisaged on multiple levels. This will in turn help resolve the digital divide between essential services.
Kerala state is envisioned and conceptualized to provide the best in class digital infrastructure for development of IT/ITES Industries which has been growing at a very healthy rate year on year. The industry has helped in creating large scale employment opportunities not only for technically qualified professionals in the software sector directly but also for large number of non-technical personnel and no-professionals as per the industry standards which is three times higher than the direct Job opportunities.
Another good news for the state is that the promising start-up culture in Kerala will see a much awaited encouragement in all respects. On the other hand, various programmes for developing the student entrepreneurship in the state is being actively initiated by Kerala StartUp Mission (KSUM). As a result, a plethora of schemes for the effective implementation of various policies have been put in to effect. From schools and colleges, the schemes cover a broad area reaching young aspiring entrepreneurs. Coming to the infrastructure front, I am proud to acknowledge the achievements of the state.
Cyberpark, along with the other IT parks will lead the state into the IT realm, conquering new frontiers. The systematic focus on completing the first IT building within Cyberpark bears testimony to this fact and will fast track the development of IT in the state. The three major IT parks Cyberpark, Technopark and Infopark will support the IT infrastructure requirements throughout the state. I am confident that when it comes to attracting global IT players in the future, these state of the art infrastructure spaces will bear testimony to the technological advancement of this state.
Wishing the team Cyberpark, All the Best.
