Hitachi establishes Chinese e-govt venture

Hitachi is to establish a joint venture with Beijing University of Technology next month, which will focus on the electronic government market in China.

The company is aiming for sales of ¥5bn (£27m) in 2007 for the new company, Hitachi Beijing Tech Information Systems, which will be capitalised at ¥100m.

Hitachi will own half of the new organisation, with its Chinese subsidiary holding a further 10%. The remaining 40% is in the hands of a company owned by its Chinese university partner.

Two years ago Hitachi established an e-government showroom in Beijing with the university. The China Cyber Government Square centre was opened in October 2001 to showcase systems such as smartcard security, online tendering and electronic education.
