Chengdu embraces its past and high-tech future to implement civil-military initiative
Chengdu, capital of China's southwest Sichuan province, is shedding its image as a traditional military industrial base to become one of the country's rising stars in innovation, thanks to China's civil-military integration strategy.
Beijing Venustech Inc, a leading provider of network security solutions, has upgraded its Chengdu branch to the status of subsidiary and located it in Chengdu Science City, a hub of new technology, industry and business in the Tianfu New Area, China's 11th national-level development area.
The Chengdu branch previously served as the marketing platform for Beijing Venustech's operations in Southwest China, while the subsidiary now operates as the company's research and development center and marketing hub for its business operations in western China, said Wang Rui, deputy general manager of the subsidiary.
In addition to focusing on traditional information safety, the subsidiary also works on the research and development of cloud security, big data security and industrial control system security solutions, said Wang.
The company moved into an office building by Xinglong Lake in Chengdu Science City in January this year.
The building has a total area of 7,000 square meters and about 300 employees.
"Our company is encouraging its research staff in Beijing to come to Chengdu and we are also employing new staff from local universities in Chengdu," Wang said, adding that he expects the company's total number of employees in Chengdu to reach 1,000 in three years.
Wang said Chengdu is crucial to his company because it has a solid industrial foundation with regard to network information security, and the local universities, such as Sichuan University and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, provide a large talent pool.
