Indian firms stake out posts in China

India's Wipro to set up shop in Beijing

Software developers in India may soon get a dose of what their Western counterparts are always griping about -- the fact that, any day, their jobs could be shipped off to foreign lands to the East.

Wipro, one of India's top three outsourcing firms, announced plans this week to open a software development center in Beijing, Silicon.com reports. And Wipro's Indian rivals are setting up outposts there too.

But the company apparently has mixed emotions about China. Just a couple weeks ago a Wipro executive took a defensive posture, claiming Chinese IT workers aren't as efficient as Indian ones and that the country's advantage in the outsourcing arena are overblown.
