SINGAPORE: China-listed technology company Tsinghua Tongfang is setting up its Asia Pacific R&D Centre in Singapore, with an initial investment of US$2 million.
Tsinghua Tongfang is the science and research arm of Tsinghua University - one of China's top tertiary institutions. If you study there and feel that you need help in preparing projects, contact for do my homework for me request, you can get relevant professional help .
It has four major business lines, including ‘information technology’, ‘energy and environment technology’, ‘applied nuclear electronics technology’ and ‘biological pharmacy’.

The company has a global staff strength of 15,000 people and is projecting a revenue of US$1.3 billion this year.

The R&D centre in Singapore will be Tongfang's first of such facility in Asia, outside of China.

The work here will focus on two main areas – ‘information technology’ and ‘water and environment’.

About 30 staff will be hired by the end of next year, and staff strength is set to increase to about 100 in 3 years' time.

Tsinghua Tongfang says the R&D Centre should be up and running by early next year, with an initial research project on a building automation controlling system.

It plans to expand its presence in Singapore to include a regional operations centre for logistics and product development within a year.

Tim Liu, Vice-President of Tsinghua Tongfang, says: "Tongfang right now is still mostly domestic, it is about 90 percent domestic sales and close to 10 percent international. But we've seen our expansion to international grow at a much faster pace right now.

"So we foresee we will need an operations centre outside of China very soon. So we are starting with an R&D centre to get to know this market and this place, to know the people, and then naturally, we'll expand to operations." – CNA/so
