Dell Leaving China In Search Of "Safer Environments" In India

Dell's said to be joining Google in fleeing China in search of a "safer environment with [a]climate conducive to enterprise", potentially taking the $US25 billion it spends on equipment and parts in China to India.

The Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, was quoted in the Hindustan Times as saying he'd just met with Dell's chairman, who would like to move all of their set-up to a country "with security of legal system". They've currently got one factory in India already.

Chairman Michael Dell has previously stated that the "Indian operations are doing well...India is a great place to be in. It is growing faster than China for us." [Hindustan Times via Silicon India via Engadget]

    Bravo Dell, putting principles ahead of profits.

    Key words: Manmohan Singh, was quoted Dell... would like to ...

    That is far from "Dell is leaving China".

    Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who said in October 2004 as a build-up to the state elections: "When we talk of a resurgent Asia, people think of the great changes that have come about in Shanghai. I share this aspiration to transform Mumbai in the next five years in such a manner that people would forget about Shanghai and Mumbai will become a talking point,"

    Today 2010, is six years after 2004. where is Mumbai? I am sure once Mumbai catch up with Shanghai, Dell, Microsoft, GM, UN will all move to India.
