Sharma said, "There is an incorrect perception in the U.S. that Indians are taking away the jobs of Americans, which is driven more by the fast-paced growth India in the IT and services sectors, Sharma told newsmen." Giving the example of recent reports, Minister said that Indian BPO companies have created income worth $106 billion inside the U.S. in the past three years ending 2009, and generated 3,00,000 jobs out of which 2,50,000 were filled by Americans. "These are jobs for Americans created in America but by Indian companies. This is a myth that jobs are being taken away by Indians," added he.
He also asked American corporate leaders to create greater sensitivity and awareness among ill-informed politicians who seek to create barriers in the trade between the two countries. "I have been urging U.S. corporate leaders that since you are aware of these facts, go in a delegation and sit with Congress people noting that accurate information would cause politicians to stop pushing forth unhelpful amendments," said he.
