Leading Indian American Malayali researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs and businessmen will meet in New York this week to discuss new technologies suitable for Kerala, a media release said.

“During the meeting, we would brain storm about the new technologies that should be considered for Kerala for it to leapfrog into next generation technology business,” said Thomas Abraham of the New York-based Kerala Center, which is organising the two-day Technology Summit on November 14 and 15.

“Kerala can do it because it has the knowledge power. Since Kerala can’t compete in low tech and mass manufacturing areas because of higher cost compared to other states, the only option is to go toward high value added products to compete in the international market,” Abraham said.

There are around 300,000 Malayalis are estimated to be living in the US, while 100,000 are estimated to be in Canada.

“We have very well-known scientists, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who could contribute for Kerala to initiate new technology areas. The Kerala Center in New York is inviting about 50 such leading personalities for a two day conclave to discuss these initiatives and opportunities,” he said.
