  • Among these, the biggest share belongs to the potential employees who are technically educated (math-, science-, and computer graduates) which makes approximately 10% of the total. After having graduated, the significant part of these would join the IT sector to add to the already huge skilled workers with technical background pool.

  • Same situation proved for the raw materials and any other resources available (production costs, water supply, power supply etc.) at the much cheaper cost than in any other developed country.
