Italian Aethra Plans China Expansion

Italy's telecommunications giant Aethra plans to expand its presence in China greatly and double its operational output within three years.

Giulio Viezzoli, president of Aethra, which provides audio-video conference endpoints and related services, and network termination equipment, said the company's decision was based on growing demand in China's market and close co-operation with Chinese partners. Aethra set up its representative office in Beijing in 1998 and its sales output in China reached US$6 million in 2003.

"Our aim is to increase sales output to US$12 million by 2006," said Giulio, adding that he is confident of reaching the goal because of the company's better business performance in China since the beginning of last year.
