What's Driving India's Rise as an R&D Hub?

Knowledge@Wharton interview with Ramesh Emani, president of Wipro Technologies' Product Engineering Services .

"Knowledge@Wharton: You said that India's advantage in R&D lies in IT experience and knowledge of English. What happens in a generation when the Chinese speak English just as well?

Emani: English has developed in India over the past 100 years. It takes time to build such skills. China may be able to converse in English, but to say it can reach the level of India, I don't see this happening that quickly."
