Some real notables of the world of outsourcing got together at Dubai recently for The World Outsourcing Forum. What is very creditable is that there were prominent representatives not only from India and China but also from Romania, Russia and Sri Lanka. It was nice to see academic and scholarly representation by way of Dr. Soumodip Sarkar from Portugal. In a detailed presentation Ismail Al Naqi, Director of Dubai Outsource Zone makes the case for Dubai as a center for setting up outsourcing delivery. The Dubai Outsource Zone sure looks like solving some of the perennial infrastructure problems of many other locations. The goal of 120,000 knowledge workers in Dubai by 2010 also seems very possible. Congratulations to James Freeman and the Outsource World team for organizing a great event at Dubai!
