Karnataka Governor H.R. Bhardwaj, and US Vice Consul General Rebecca A. Seweryn, were present at an event in Bangalore last week, where over 150 technology executives came to hear why establishing their US business in Fairfax, might be the canny thing to do, if they wanted to scoop up some of the government related business worth over $ 17 billion dollars that the 6000 plus tech players in region attract every year.Fairfax County, offers opportunities in defence, homeland security and ITC services and over 20 Indian companies (along with more than 330 companies from other countries) have an office in the county. In fact Fairfax is the biggest IT market in the US – not Silicon Valley on the west coast.

Ltd. represents FCEDA in India.  Siddharth Sarawgi, director of Fairfax County EDA in India and CEO of Innoversant Solutions told the assembled tech honchos that Fairfax County offers a $22 billion plus opportunity from the US federal government, a major part of which is cornered by the technology companies in ICT, defense & homeland security.

  "I'm a very strong Republican. Some of the cmoments on here are foolish beyond belief. McLaughlin will have this sealed. Republicans strong Republicans I know will be working on her behalf. She IS a community voice for the people no matter what their party label. Children don't come with R's and D's next to their names. The parents and taxpayers of this county want results and Megan McLaughlin delivers. She WON Fairgrade and she most recently WON a key result for the Woodson Community in preventing FCPS from giving away valuable land to Fairfax City for a bus depot on the Woodson campus. She not only knows the schools AND the system she cares deeply about transparency and accountability and respects the taxpayers, parents and teacher who support the system. Republicans would be wise to cross-endorse her and focus their attention on more important SB seats like finding a decent conservative to run in Hunter Mill for Stu Gibson's seat and in the Sully district to defeat that total lib Kathy Smith she's as bad as Bradsher!"

  "I agree ALL OF THE ABOVE- Wonderful opportunity for Rediff and other Indian email prvredios to take over email management of nic and migrate over to their own systems with their own servers- It is not necessarily true that NIC had better security than Yahoo & Google- NIC should definitely upgrade it's standards. Outsourcing to Rediff may be the way to go- Govt employees should stop using free email services and become security conscious"
