Keywords:India  China  R&D 

Michael Dell, founder and CEO, Dell Inc., at an interactive Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) session in Bangalore said that Dell was committed to enhancing its manufacturing capability in India. Dell said his company plans to use India both for R&D and as a manufacturing centre.

With China being an attractive destination for manufacturing, Dell said India needed to formulate a more "concerted" industrial policy around manufacturing other than having a stable tax regime and supportive infrastructure to become a global manufacturing destination.

Interacting with industry leaders and engineers, Dell said that for his company it was not a choice between India and China but both the countries were equally important. "It is India and China, not India or China," he said.

Dell: Our R&D works in India will continue to grow.

He said India has a huge human capital base and it was important for Dell to make use of such resources. "I see more variation by customer size than by geography," he said.

Talking about India as an R&D destination for the company, Dell said the company is growing its R&D capabilities in India. "Our R&D works in India will continue to grow. We need very specialised skills and a stable and predictable environment for this," he added

On the challenge posed to PCs by tablets and smartphones, Dell said, "PC will always continue to be the first device whereas tablets will work as an additional device. Not many would like to have internet experience on a small screen."
