At the beginning of May, Linearis opened its second office in China. From now on, in addition to the office in Beijing, where Linearis has been operating since 2011, the company will be also represented in the port city of Ningbo. This office will accommodate two Linearis Group companies: translation agency “Linearis Translations” and export promotion company “Linearis IBC”.
As noted by the owner of Linearis Voldemārs Brēdiķis, the company has been long searching for possibilities to expand its presence in China, as the demand for translations into Chinese in Europe and for translations into European languages in China has significantly increased due to the influence of dominating trends in the global economy. The choice was made in favour of Ningbo based on strategic assumptions regarding its active business environment, which is rather often used by European companies as a kick-off point for entering the Chinese market. Opening of the office in Ningbo became possible thanks to the support provided by the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.
Ningbo is a city with a long history, which gained particular significance in the history of economic development of both China and the world at the beginning of our era as one of the trade and port cities of the Silk Road. Currently, Ningbo municipality is carrying out targeted activities to strengthen cooperation with member countries of the Initiative of Cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European Countries (16+1). Ningbo has become the cooperation centre for “16+1” countries, where the annual CEEC Investment and Trade Expo is organised. Naturally, the company to provide translation services during this important event is Linearis.
Within the “16+1” cooperation format and with support from the city of Ningbo, a business centre was opened in the centre of the city, accommodating representative offices of the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia, the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and now also Linearis.
