IBM mulls over large IT service centre in Romania.

By bne IntelliNews September 14, 2011
US company IBM is negotiating with the local government on a possible state-aid that would support the development of a large IT service centre in Romania with a staff of 3,000, Ziarul Financiar announced. The centre will be located in Iasi, Cluj or Timisoara where large universities are able to supply the necessary workforce. The state-aid scheme will be open for other IT global companies, as well, including Oracle, Dell and Ericsson that consider large-scale investments in the expansion of their existing businesses in Romania alongside employment plans in the range of hundreds each. IBM already operates such an IT service centre in Romania, as do other IT and telecom companies like HP, Oracle, Ericsson and Alcatel Lucent. IBM already employs 1,500 in Romania and local manager Mihai Tudor confirmed that all companies would expand their IT service centres if being backed by the state.
