NEW YORK CITY (ICIS)--Dow Chemical will open a new office in Chengdu, China, to serve as its business and sales hub for the western part of the country, the company said on Tuesday.
The office will open in the first half of 2012 and will support its initiative to serve western China, the company said.
“The western China region is a new strategic area for Dow to accelerate our business growth in China,” said Peter Sykes, president of Dow Greater China.
“We expect to continue expanding at a double-digit annual rate over the next five to ten years, and we foresee significant opportunities in western China thanks to major government infrastructure investments and the size of this region,” he added.
