EU says outsourcing good for world economy
A European Union delegation said Monday outsourcing was beneficial for the world economy and added it understood India's concerns about objections in western nations to shifting jobs overseas.
"It's something that is good for you (India) and good for our service industries," EU's External Relations Commissioner Christopher Patten told reporters in New Delhi.
"We have no problems with outsourcing. We are very understanding of India's concerns on the issue."
Patten was part of an EU delegation led by Irish Foreign Minister Brian Cowen whose country currently holds the rotating EU presidency.
Patten said the EU believed western outsourcing of jobs to countries like India, Mexico and China, where labour costs are lower and goods can be produced more cheaply, was an "an aspect of a more liberal world economy."
