China Telecom Americas Continues To Grow

HERNDON, Va. and MARKHAM, Ontario, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- China Telecom Americas, a wholly-owned North-American-based subsidiary of China Telecom Corporation Ltd. (NYSE: CHA), the world's largest fixed-line telecommunications and broadband services provider, has announced the formation of a subsidiary company, China Telecom Canada.  China Telecom Canada provides a full suite of data, IP and value-added services to multinational companies, organizations and international carriers requiring China domestic services and international access to China and the Asia Pacific region.

"Some of Canada's most ambitious companies have long been active in China.  Many others are beginning to explore the great opportunities China has to offer," stated Donald Tan, president of China Telecom Americas.  "These firms need an experienced partner to help them develop and deploy a plan for success in China.  For these multinational enterprises, that partner is China Telecom Canada."  Tan continued, "We have seen a continual growth in demand for diverse, reliable communication between Canada and Asia, and while China Telecom Americas has had an office in Canada for more than five years, we realized that we needed to have a fully-functional Canadian company to better serve our customers.  We are committed to helping Canadian companies grow in China."

Canada has a long-standing and comprehensive relationship with China, which operates at many levels, and includes political, commercial, scientific, cultural and academic ties.  And, since China has been leading Asia into economic recovery, China is becoming a more important partner to both the United States and Canada.  China and Canada have forged strong and deep commercial ties.  Since 2005, two-way trade between the two countries has grown an average of 8.5 percent annually, reaching nearly $51 billion in 2009.

China Telecom Canada is headquartered at 175 Commerce Valley Drive West in Markham, Ontario.
