AKKA meet from Sept 3 next year

 
A MoU will be signed between the Karnataka government and three companies in the field of agro-business, aircraft manufacturing and maintenance and green technology during the occasion. “We have shortlisted 6-12 companies for the MoU and hope to sign it at the convention,” said the President of AKKA, Ravi Dankanikote.

The convention is expected to attract as many as 10,000 Kannada expatriates in the US. The event will also see the launch of the Federation of World Kannada Kootas. Among other programmes to be conducted by AKKA, the organisation has initiated the launch of “Akka sahaaya portal” which will cater to “re-settle” those Kannadigas, who have lost their jobs.

About 5 per cent of the existing Kannada population have returned to India due to the current global slowdown. “We have established contacts in the State and are helping these people through the portal to find schools for the expatriates children to be enrolled into, apart from providing some assistance in finding new homes and jobs,” said Dankanikote.
