If a so-called “IT Hub” is the ultimate plan, why don’t we encourage our IT entrepreneurs or attract more “foreign companies” instead of “cheap foreign work force”. Why don’t we address the actual persisting problems in the IT industry instead of signing agreements made merely based on political gains…

Thanks for your excellent reply! :)
