"Our ambition is to combine the synergies of global vision and local insight while focusing on emerging markets. The Indian market is poised to offer fertile soil to create businesses worth millions of dollars, turning it into one of the top 3 markets of mobile internet industry along with China and US," Mobvista CEO Wei Duan said.
 
 
India is a strategic market and Mobvista is determined to draw more attention, resources and focus required to sustain and build upon this momentum, he added.
