During an exiting and intense week in Chengdu 成都, the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan I have learned a lot. We have met skilled tech entrepreneurs and large software companies. There is a clear potential for Nordic companies in the region.
About Chengdu: It is one of the three most populous cities in Western China, the other two being Chongqing and Xi’an. Together with Chongqing maybe the first megacity with +100M citizens in 5-8 years! Have the potential to be one of the centers for enterprise software in China, both a growing number of developers and a lot of huge corporates. Home of the Pandas and the famous Sichuan food.
A region with opportunities Nordic companies needs to explore more. Would be great to get in contact with European SMEs with an existing business in Chengdu!
