New Delhi, Delhi, India, Thursday, February 07, 2013 — (Business Wire India) — Delhi NCR gets its first World Trade Center (WTC) at Spire Edge in Manesar, an integrated 1.6 million sq.ft mixed use IT/ITeS development. This is result of a rigorous assessment by World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), New York. The distinction makes Spire Edge (part of the Spire World group) not only North India’s first operational World Trade Center (WTC), but also a member of an elite Global Business Network that includes more than 330 WTCs in 100 countries.
The corporate world will now recognise SpireEdge as WTC Manesar, a Business Address of International Stature, bringing to the Local & Global Business Community the same standards of facilities & services similar to any other International WTC. Some of the well-known International World Trade Centers (WTCs) are in New York, London, Sydney, Dubai, Chicago, Abu-Dhabi, Amsterdam, Singapore, Tokyo and other locations. In India, World Trade Center (WTC) is operational in Mumbai and Bangalore.
Be it the indigenously designed Energy Efficient Bio-Climatic Office Spaces, Water usage Efficiencies, State of art Communication Facilities, Pioneering Incubation cum Venture Accelerator Centre (V@C), Comfortable Residential Spaces, Club, Auditorium, Food-court or the Retail Complex, the WTC Manesar as the World’s Best Office Development (awarded by CNBC) is ready to welcome the World’s Best Companies.
According to Khair Ull Nissa, Senior General Manager, WTC Manesar, “Spire Edge aims to provide a comprehensive eco-system that fosters business growth and revenue enhancement for companies operating from the campus. Manesar, being a strategic location, have excellent connectivity, planned amenities and infrastructure which makes it a favored business destination for several multinationals. We are happy to associate with World Trade Centers Association and operate under the brand name of World Trade Center.”
A remarkable fact about the WTC Global Network –
The World Trade (goods & services) is of the order of approx US$ 12 Trillion. 1/3rd of this i.e. an estimated US$ 4 Trillion flows through the WTC International Network. Thus, 330 office complexes in the world driving 1/3rd of the Global Trade!
According to Gaurav Bansal, Senior General Manager (Marketing), WTC Manesar, “More than a building or a complex, WTC as a networking platform strives to bring together various stakeholders such as Corporates, Associations, Government Agencies, SMEs & Other institutions. Going forward, WTC Manesar will be hosting various industry events, B2B matchmaking sessions & discussions”.
During his recent visit to India, Mr. Eric Dahl, CEO, World Trade Centers Association said, “While there are many industry and trade associations in India, WTC serves a complimentary function. When Indian firms reach out to the world, the typical routes are through Indian Consulate or through their foreign business partners. But small firms can’t afford these. That’s where WTC chips in as well. I like to call it the United Nations of Business”.
He further added, “Presence in 100 countries is a solid enough reason for someone to consider banking on WTC for their trade promotions. Hence WTC compliments the efforts of government bodies as well other government and private associations in helping business go global”.
World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), is a US based non-profit and non-governmental organization that promotes the growth of international trade by establishing WTCs throughout the world in key strategic locations. WTCA achieves its mission by providing a wide array of support function and networking links that help local companies in every geography successfully engage in global trade.
