A high-level delegation from Australian High Commission, New Delhi, headed by high commissioner H E Patrick Suckling, visited Technopark here on Monday. The delegation comprised David Holly, consul general in south India and Roshen Paul of Australian Trade Office.

Principal Secretary (IT) P H Kurian welcomed the guests and spoke about the opportunities that are available for Australian IT companies to invest in Kerala and requested the high commissioner to examine possibilities of trade tie-ups between Australian and Kerala-based IT companies.

The Australian high commissioner said that he would be pleased to have more business relations between Kerala and Australia and assured all support for the Kerala IT team visiting Australia next month. Holly explained that most of the Australian regions have trade offices in India and he would extend all support to the Kerala IT team.

Technopark CEO Girish Babu made a detailed presentation on the opportunities available in Kerala for Australian companies. “The cost of operations in Kerala is 30 per cent cheaper and the main advantage for companies who have set up their campuses in Technopark is that they run 99 per cent of the time on grid power, whereas in other locations, companies have to use up to 80 per cent DG power, which is very expensive,’’ he said.
