The India Connection

The co exec touts two India-based businesses that have located here. We really couldn't tell what was new except that the county is formally recognizing such. Are we missing something?

From the Sun:

A coalition of Indian-American business owners headquartered in Howard County is expanding into an office building it purchased on Centre Park Drive near Route 108 in Columbia.

The growth of Intercontinental Export Import, an international plastic recycling firm, and Prism Microsystems, a software security firm that has 12 facilities worldwide, could together add up to 80 new jobs in the county during the next year, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman announced at a news conference in the firms' jointly owned headquarters building. Grand-opening festivities are planned at 10:30 a.m Saturday.

Ulman showed slides of his February trip to Bangalore, India, where the two firms also do business, as a way of spotlighting the growing business connections he hopes to solidify between the county and India.
