Intel today announced plans to establish a Chinese research and development facility in Shanghai's Zizhu Science Park.
The chip giant said that the move will help it tap into the growing pool of technical skills in China and the Asia Pacific region.
"China is creating the kind of dynamic environment that is an impetus to great R&D," said Wee Theng Tan, president of Intel China.
Asia-Pacific R&D Ltd will focus on product development and platform-level innovations from all Intel product and technology groups.
These include the Digital Home Group, Digital Enterprise Group, Mobility Group, Channel Platforms Group, Digital Health Group, Software and Solutions Group and Information Services & Technology Group.
With continued strong growth expected across the region, Intel is planning for the facility to employ more than 1,000 people by the end of 2006.
