|If you were to choose a high-tech career in the United States or India, what would you choose?
According to Forbes magazine, Rosen Sharma, an Indian immigrant, chose to start a business in the United States in 1993 and achieved remarkable results.
Sharma said that if he had just stepped out of college, he would have chosen IndiA.India has better business opportunities and a better quality of life, he said:
with good living conditions, schools and safe streets, you will feel that young engineers'salaries are increasing.
He believes that emerging countries such as India have unique advantages over the United States.
Sharma's answer may come as a surprise.
Because in the past 20 years, the rapid development of high-tech enterprises in the United States is largely due to our successful attraction of knowledge elites from India, mainland China, Taiwan and other Asian countries and regions year after year.
We take it for granted that these talented immigrants want to come to the United States, and they will help the next generation of American entrepreneurs achieve remarkable achievements.
But Sharma's point of view should be noteD.Sharma said he went directly to the United States in 1993, after graduating from the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi with excellent results.
Most of his classmates also chose this path.
According to Sharma, there were 40 graduates in his class at that time.
Only three of them stayed in India and all the others went to the United States.
For Sharma, this is no doubt a wise move, and for the United States, it is also a suitable deal.
He earned a Ph.
D.from Cornell University in the United States and founded several companies - developing new products, generating high profits, rewarding investors and creating jobs.
Today, he serves on the boards of five companies and owns his own company in Palo Alto, CaliforniA.He applied for American citizenship, and several children were born and raised in the United States.
But Sharma, president of the Alumni Association of the Indian Institute of Technology, said that India's next generation of engineers may not understand the path he chose:
last year, only 10 of the 45 graduates of the Indian Institute of Technology who chose Sharma as their major decided to seek development in the United States.
If this does represent a trend, then the impact on the United States will be enormous.
Professor Anna Lee Saxonyan, Dean of the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley, has been tracking the impact of foreign immigrant entrepreneurs on American Society for many years.
In collaboration with researchers at Duke University, she completed a study in January.
Over the past 10 years, one out of every four high-tech companies in the United States has been founded by foreign immigrants, according to the report.
These companies created jobs for 450,000 people, with sales of $52 billion in 2005.
