    I'm sorry but time and again I had to quote the example of Indian negotiating skills.
    At least minimum we should negotiate some technical training center.
    No one will deny this, but if we don't ask they will never do it. Suzuki, Honda, Toyota should have built an auto eduction complex by now considering the bussines they have done in years.
    I remember a story of a Multinational company (I work for same) wanted to start its operation in Pakistan and offered to made it a regional hub for middle east and centeral asian states but famous Mr.10% said how does it benifit to me... well that company chnged there mind and set up its regional office in Dubai.
    During that period (90's) various European companies started there operations in India and that is the only reason why suddenly Indian ecomomy clicked.
    By the virtue of those companies millions of Indians got opportunity to work and migrate abroad, which again helped in creating an Indian lobby in west.
    If any one can get hold of the statistics about how many indians migrated abroad from 90's todate and how many a decade before will tell a story by itself.
