The move will give Britannica a strong partner in India and enable the company to concentrate on directly providing Indian educators with its award-winning digital education solutions, such as Britannica School, LaunchPacks: Social Studies and Britannica Image Quest, said Jorge Cauz, president of Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.
"India has always been an important place for Britannica. Under this new strategy we will focus our attention on serving the regional teaching and learning needs with our outstanding supplemental digital solutions, which have been successful around the world," said Cauz. "It is our intent to work closely with Navneet to find ways in which we all can benefit from our common determination to serve the students and teachers of India."
Cauz also praised Navneet for its commitment to continue Britannica's tradition of editorial excellence. "We look forward to a fruitful collaboration and possible partnerships in this area and beyond."
