All services offered by Chengdu and the CDHT, the city’s dynamic economic growth, and its huge talent pool and well-established traffic infrastructure are precisely what we hoped for. All of TI’s decision makers had come to the consensus to make Chengdu one of our company’s key strategic bases,” said Mr. Ritchie
