MOU helps promote ‘Made-by-Singapore’ tech to the region

SINGAPORE, 17 MARCH 2011 - Infocomm Singapore Centre (ISC) has inked an agreement with two China government agencies to facilitate Singapore technology companies entering China’s Chongqing region.

ISC signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Chongqing Economic and Information Technology Commission, and Chongqing New North Zone Administrative Committee. 

“Through facilitation by the Infocomm Singapore Centre, the government, businesses and institutions in Chongqing will have opportunity to get to know ‘Made-by-Singapore’ ICT solutions. This will catalyse partnership prospects with Singapore enterprises and create business opportunities,” said Andrew Khaw, senior director of IDA’s industry development group.

ISC, first established in Shanghai in 2004, is a collaboration between the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) and Singapore infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF) to promote Singapore infocomm solutions and capabilities in China.

The agreement has encouraged Singapore start-ups such as IPACS and IBIZ Consultancy Services to set up their offices in Chongqing North New Zone (CNNZ).
