Singapore companies looking to Chinese province Liaoning for growth

SINGAPORE - Companies from Singapore are making inroads into China's northeast province of Liaoning, according to trade promotion agency International Enterprise (IE) Singapore.

The agency has helped four Singapore firms - Ascott Residence Trust, Crestar Education Group, MapleTree and Q&M Dental Group - to expand their presence in the province, it said in a statement on Thursday.

IE Singapore noted that as China steers its economic growth model towards greater domestic consumption, there has been a progressive shift in Liaoning's economic landscape to focus more on the services sector.

This shift has been buoyed by the increasing demand for quality services from a more affluent population and a growing foreign community, it added.
