RE: Project in Madrid, Spain

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I used to work for a large multinational firm.  We frequently did designs in
many foreign countries.  I always felt it was insightful for the client to
require a certain degree of collaboration with an indigenous firm for the
purpose of technology transfer.  My former firm had offices in most of the
countries that they did business with and hired local engineers.

Some projects were designed in other countries for implementation in yet a
third country.  The US parent was little more than a traffic cop in the
information flow.  It was always a learning exercise.  Everyone benefited.

Interesting to note the furor over Indian engineers trying to work in
the US, but no response to the inquiry by an American firm trying to
work in Madrid.  Are there no protectionists in Spain?

I've stayed out of the current debate because I am currently involved in
projects in Australia, Great Britian, and Brazil, as well as the good
ol' USA.  I recognize that what's sauce for the goose is also sauce for
the gander.
