Voices of corporations
Mr. Choi Jai IK, General Manager LG Display (China) CO. LTD.
“We considered three elements when selecting the site: first, LGD’s customers are mainly in the Pearl River Delta; second, LGD has also invested in and built a module factory nearby, thus facilitating coordination between the two factories; third, the module factory has worked closely with the GDD Administrative Committee and the government has been active in helping us by providing resources and solving problems. Therefore, LGD chose to locate its only display factory outside South Korea in GDD.”
Mr. Wilson Peng, Managing Director, Carl Zeiss Vision (China) CO. LTD.
“Carl Zeiss requires the production and delivery of products within 48 hours, 365 days a year. We made a special investigation into GDD. From the district director to the clerk, many of them were fluent in English and we could directly communicate with them. The novel concepts and international vision of government officials impressed our top management. That is why our vice president made a decision to locate our new facility in GDD. For many years the Customs clearance has not been affected despite the leadership changes. The Customs administration has maintained the services for several years.”
Mr. Akio Tsukada, Director & General Manager, Meiji Ice Cream (Guangzhou) CO. LTD.
“Meiji Group made meticulous plans and eventually decided to choose GDD. This is because GDD has high-end infrastructure, abundant human resources, convenient logistics, a smooth and simple administrative flow as well as a distinct and comprehensive investment environment. From the plant construction in the early stages to trial operations later on, we gained great support and help from related departments in GDD, enabling us to tackle the difficulties we faced. We are touched by the care and support that GDD provides enterprises in the district. We believe that in this quality investment environment, our company will make great progress and prosper together with GDD.”
