Tata Communications, a leading provider of a new world of communications, today announces its official International Headquarter Status appointment, in Singapore, by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). The company made the announcement at a formal ceremony attended by Mr. S. Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Trade & Industry and senior officials from Singapore's Economic Development Board.

At the event, Tata Communications announced plans to increase its local Singapore workforce by 60% over the next four years. This includes the addition of 40 new staff to Tata Communications' global managed services control tower, as well as additional staff into its next generation services development centre. Tata Communications will also invest approximately SGD $110 million per year over the next four years. The planned investments reinforce the organisation's continued focus on innovation and support of both its customers and the Singapore market.

"The official accreditation of International Headquarter Status by the Singapore government has come on the back of our long-term commitment and continued investment in the region. We are very proud of the recognition that EDB has given us," said Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Communications, part of the US$67.4 billion Tata Group.

"We've chosen to base our international headquarters in Singapore because it is truly a global city. Strong trade and investment has made it the most competitive Asian country today with a vibrant economy which has led to its growing business-hub status on the world map. We're here for the long term with strategically planned business investments that will benefit Singapore and its citizens. One of the many benefits of placing our international headquarters in Singapore is the access to its world-class technical and business expertise. We want to play a continued role in encouraging global innovation by employing the best local talent available, at all levels of the business," concluded Kumar.

Mr. S. Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Trade & Industry said at the event, "I would like to congratulate the management and staff of Tata Communications for their vision in choosing Singapore to drive the next phase of your growth. We warmly welcome your expansion here as it underpins the tremendous growth opportunities that Asia has to offer."

Tata Communications' Singapore headquarters has played a pivotal role for the APAC region since 2004, acting as a springboard to other global markets and a co-ordination point for the company's business and operational activities in the region.

The company has invested considerably in Singapore over the last few years, helping to not only support local job creation but also to boost the attractiveness of Singapore as a business destination for global businesses. The company invested in a US$180 million state-of-the-art Singapore-based data centre, TCX, in 2010. The data centre is expected to attract an increasing number of companies routing and hosting their data in Singapore. The first public Telepresence room in the region was launched in Singapore in conjunction with the Rendezvous Hotel Group in 2010 and earlier this year, Singapore was chosen as the market to launch Tata Communications' international cloud offering - InstaCompute.
