New Offices in Shenyang, Chengdu, and Shenzhen
In July 2012, NTT Com's subsidiary NTT Com China opened branch offices in Shenyang, Chengdu, and Shenzhen to grow their business and increase competitiveness in mainland China. The new branches provide system architecture, maintenance and management for businesses in and around these dynamic cities.
The three locations were chosen for their appeal for domestic and international companies and their excellent growth potential. Shenyang—and northeast China as a whole—has attracted many domestic and foreign BPO service providers due to the lower cost of labor in comparison with coastal areas and the abundance of fluent foreign language speakers. Chengdu also offers lower relative labor costs and has become a hotspot for manufacturing and distribution companies capitalizing on the recent increase in domestic demand. The area around the Pearl River Delta, including the special economic zone of Shenzhen, has been sustaining high rates of growth and currently has the highest concentration of foreign companies in China.
