Sixth Annual Global Sourcing Summit Leverages Explosive Growth in Chinese Market to Connect IT Buyers and Service Providers

Nov. 10-11 Summit in Xi'an offers unprecedented opportunities for partnerships between international companies and Chinese outsourcing community

XI'AN, China, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- At a time when high-tech companies are increasingly looking to the East for new growth markets, the sixth annual Global Sourcing Summit (http://china09globalsourcingsummit.com/) offers unprecedented access to the rapidly growing Chinese outsourcing community in Xi'an, the dynamic city distinguished as one of the four capitals of civilization of the ancient world.

Themed "New Opportunities for the Changing World," the free program is organized by Shaanxi Province Government, supported by the Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and co-sponsored by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP). The event will connect international companies that are looking to streamline their businesses to meet growth and cost-saving objectives with Chinese service providers. Similarly, international IT and outsourcing professionals may also find increasing opportunities from the vast outsourcing and IT needs of Chinese enterprises looking to do the same.

"China is becoming both an outsourcing client and customer at the same time," said Zigeng Wang, director of the Xian software park. "And we are seeing many international small and medium-sized companies becoming aware of China's convenient set-up processes and favorable government and financial incentives."

Organized into a series of keynote speeches and five individual sessions, the program covers topics such as Internet applications and open-source developments, client liaisons and service centers, and Sino-Japanese outsourcing talent development. "The idea is to give international IT professionals a firsthand look at the Chinese outsourcing community, government policy trends, and opportunities presented in the Chinese economy," stated Wang.

Attendees can also request individual meetings with companies in advance and will have a chance to visit universities to talk with IT majors and graduate students. "Relationship-building is at the heart of this event," explained John Luo, the Chicago-based U.S. representative for the summit.

The Xi'an location is a strategic setting on several fronts. Once the start of the famed Silk Road and home to a succession of 13 Imperial Dynasties, Xi'an is now the address for some 800 outsourcing enterprises and 70,000 employees generating more than four billion USD annually in the city's high-tech zone. At least 200 companies based in Xi'an are represented in the Forbes 500. Moreover, the city is China's densest when it comes to engineering populations, R&D institutions and colleges and universities, with some 400,000 engineers employed in the region. With the launch of the city's new software zone during the November summit, state-of-the-art conference and office facilities will be available to accommodate an additional 20,000 engineers, a boon to future IT giants around the world.

Although there is no entrance fee for this event, advance registration is required. For more information, visit http://china09globalsourcingsummit.com/.
