Modi meets Women Employees at TCS in Riyadh

modiPrime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday described an all-women IT centre set up by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)  as the “glory of Saudi Arabia”.

“I am meeting those professionals who are now the glory of Saudi Arabia,” said Modi in the first engagement of the second and last day of his bilateral visit to Saudi Arabia.

“This atmosphere I am witnessing here today has the potential to give a strong reply to the world.”

Modi was welcomed with cheers by the employees as he entered the centre.

Some of them took selfies with the prime minister.

The centre, opened three years back, initially had 80 people. The number has now grown to over 1,000.

Eighty percent of the employees are local Saudi women.

It is also the first BPO to be opened by any company in the world in Saudi Arabia and the significance is more so because it is run entirely by women.

Over 60 percent of graduates in Saudi Arabia are women.

Saudi Arabia is the third and last leg of Modi’s five-day foreign tour which also took him to Brussels and Washington, D.C.
