Why locate your Data Centre in China?
China is the world's fastest-growing major economy and has become the focal point of Asia, with an average growth of 10% over the past 30 years. China does however remain a challenge for many businesses wanting to expand, with commercial and technical hurdles relating to bandwidth availability, network access and power supply.
Recent government reforms including the establishment of a free-trade zone in Shanghai are currently increasing the country’s attractiveness for future investments as China demonstrates its willingness to open up to the global economy. This means that business opportunities are predicted to expand in key sectors, such as renewable energy and technology.
