A team of top officials of Japanese IT firm Fujitsu Thursday held talks with the Kerala government to explore possibilities of setting up a software development centre at the Technopark here. Fujitsu Consulting India CEO Shrikant Vaze and senior director Manoj Nair met Kerala chief ministerPinarayi Vijayan here, an official release said.

This was followed by a discussion with the chief secretary Tom Jose, IT secretary M Sivasankar and Technopark CEO Hrishikesh Nair.

The team evaluated the existing ecosystem and zeroed in on Thiruvananthapuram as a possible location for the proposed project. In the coming months, Fujitsu would study the existing IT ecosystem, the support facilities in the capital district and conduct further discussions.

The discussions with Fujitsu officials assume significance as it comes close on the heels of the decision of a leading Japanese carmaker Nissan to open a global digital a hub for electric cars, the release said.
