As one of the largest cities in India, Pune is fast emerging as a prominent location for the IT and Manufacturing Sectors.
A large number of engineering, electronic and electrical industries have set up their base here. It has become an investment destination for countries like Germany, Japan, Korea and France. Likewise, many Chinese firms have also opted to carry the “Made in Pune” tag, and are setting up huge facilities here.
Thus, a host of opportunities, from transcription to interpretation, await Punekars who can speak the Chinese Language.
Today, learning the Chinese Language (Mandarin) not only provides career opportunities, but also opens one’s door to travel opportunities. People across Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mongolia, Brunei, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Laos speak Chinese. No wonder, it is the most spoken language in the world.
Business firms all across the globe, trade with the Chinese. This means, such businessmen either have to make frequent trips to China or host their Chinese partners in India. In both these cases, it is important for the businessmen to know the Chinese language and their culture.
And yes, the Chinese are learning English. But not all Chinese. China is a very big country and is the biggest market in the world. To tap this market, most countries are learning Chinese.
