CDI Systems and eBooks joined forces for a combined presence at this year’s DPAP show in Beijing, China. Mr Richard Wan, eBooks General CEO, was a key note speaker at the show. On the strength of the advantage of modern high-tech information technology and on the basis of traditional publishing industry, digital publishing in China has moved into the rapid development stage by virtue of the vigorous support from the government as well as the active promotion by the enterprises within the industry. Chinese digital publishing industry has registered output of RMB53 billion by the end of 2008, with a year-on-year increase of 46.42%.
CDI Systems and eBooks, with their HQ in Singapore, are already partnering in a joint venture project under the auspies of the SIIRD (the Singapore Israel Institute for Research and Development) (See June 1st Press Release). Now, both companies have teamed up to market the NetIS engine into the rapidly expanding Asian ePublishing industry.
“The only way to successfully reach a market thousands of miles away from home,” said Mr. Levit, “is to have outstanding partners like eBooks. They know our market and they understand our technology.”
“We have been operating in China for the past seven years with representatives in Hong Kong and Taiwan as well. We not only know the market well but also the people who make things happen. We have done business with them and have earned their trust and confidence through working with them in all these years," commented Mr Wan. "Based on the ground feedback, we think NetIS is the right technology to introduce to the Chinese market at this opportune time. We're glad to have found a good partner like CDI Systems which offers this excellent technology. CDI Systems and E-Book Systems' joint participation in this very important show demonstrates our commitment to offer the best technological solution to help our Chinese customers in their business."
