Sustaining Software Teletrade in Bangalore

For firms in Bangalore, sustaining a presence in the international market for software involves combating cost-based competition as well as identifying and exploiting opportunities for market growth.

It provides a typology of agile firms in Bangalore, identifies the sources of their economic competence and traces implications for government policies to sustain sectoral growth.
