Beijing, China, 2009/08/11 - CANDIS Group Co-Founder David van Meerendonk, joined by other expert panelists, discussing the current and future IT investment opportunities in China - CANDISGroup.com.
Software and IT business opportunities in China have made way for enormous benefits and changes. The software industry in China registered growth of more than 30% in the year 2008, indicating that the industry has not been impacted by the ongoing global economic crisis.
Factors encouraging both domestic and foreign software players to expand in the Chinese IT sector include government support, easy access to rapidly developing IT infrastructure, ample supply of talent, and availability of low cost resources.
In efforts to cope with the global economic crisis, the Chinese government has invested 4 trillion RMB in the form of IT investment, construction of software parks, and provision of quick approvals. Thus, China's software and IT market demands have increased steadily. The ongoing effort to make China a hi-tech service-based economy has fueled growth in the domestic software industry in recent years.
During an expert panel session this Summer, the opportunities associated with investing in software and IT companies in China were addressed. Topics discussed were: where to profit from this growing industry, which sectors to stay away from and ultimately where the industry is heading.
CANDIS Group Co-Founder David van Meerendonk, was joined by other expert panelists, including Microsoft Web Strategy General Manager Nigel Burton, RIM General Manager Charles Liu and others, discussing the current and future IT investment opportunities and their experiences working and operating in the Chinese marketplace, answering the many questions that were asked on the day.
