The Microsoft and Intel corporations establish high-tech research facilities in Beijing.

 

1998

 

Currently, about 150 researchers and over 250 visiting scientists and students are developing next-generation multimedia applications and Asian-specific computing at Microsoft's Beijing research center. In November 1998 the Intel company also establishes a research lab in Beijing, the Intel China Research Center (ICRC). It is focused on advanced technology research and has been an integral part of Intel's worldwide network of R&D centers. These and other high-tech investments of western companies are clearly facilitating knowledge transfer to China and contribute to the growth of China's top-level research capacity and staff.
