IChemE Opens China Office
A new IChemE office in Shanghai is open for business following the successful application to local government for a wholly owned foreign enterprise (WOFE) business license. The office will primarily be used to serve the growing IChemE member base in China and forge stronger links with Chinese universities and industry.
IChemE CEO David Brown says that the opening of a Shanghai base is an important development for the Institution: “Establishing the WOFE, our China arm, is a really significant milestone for IChemE and for the chemical engineering community. It’s a key step in bringing about fuller interaction between engineers in China and their colleagues elsewhere in the profession.”
IChemE already has over 150 members in China but that number is expected to grow quickly in the coming months. The granting of the WOFE business license follows a period of increased IChemE activity in China.
