CDC Global Services And China Merchants Group To Host International IT Food Safety Conference On Thursday, May 26

CDC Global Services, a business unit of CDC Corporation (NASDAQ: CHINA) and a provider of IT and IT-enabled services and consulting, will host, in conjunction with the China Merchants Group and the Zhangzhou government, an international IT Food Safety conference, “Applications of Information Technology in the Food Processing Industry,” this Thursday, May 26, 2011 at the Zhangzhou City Hotel for food manufacturing companies in Asia.

This week’s event is the first of several future conferences planned as part of CDC Global Services’ new “Silk Road” business consulting services. The “Silk Road” services are planned to help customers gain quick and easy access into China, as well as effectively operate in this fast growing market.

The event is being organized as a result of CDC Global Services’ previously announced partnership with China Merchants Group, a China state-owned diversified conglomerate with interests in logistics, manufacturing and financial services. This week’s event has attracted numerous food manufacturers, as well as venture capital and private equity funds representing the food and agricultural industries in Japan. Another international food conference is planned in Nanhai, Foshan in the third quarter for multinational organizations in North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Africa seeking to start or to expand business in China.

This week’s conference in Zhangzhou includes a full day of keynote speeches, timely presentations, and panel discussions given by key CDC executives, food and IT experts, as well as customers. The conference opens up with a keynote address from the mayor of Zhangzhou. Presentations include: “Status and Trends of Food Safety in China,” from a director at China’s Food and Drug Administration; “Back to Basics: Lean Technology for Cost and Capacity,” from Mark Sutcliffe, a noted Lean expert and president of the CDC Factory business of CDC Software; “Challenges Facing Japanese Food & Beverage Companies in the Post-Radiation Stage,” from Sumio Tanaka, president of LogiDyne Corporation; “New Technology in Supply Chain Management for Food Safety,” from John Crossno, founder of OnAsset Intelligence, a CDC Software partner and a global provider of remote monitoring and freight intelligence solutions; “New RFID Applications in Food Process,” by Li Ying, Ph.D., director of the RFID Center in Guangdong; “Winning Consumer Confidence and Meeting Compliance Requirements,” from Sean Yu, vice president of CDC Software, and head of the company’s China R&D Center; “Food Safety and Food Quality Management,” from Wu Ke, manager of Hogan Packing Company; a panel discussion on “Applications of IT for Improvement in Food Safety,” featuring all the speakers with CK Wong, CEO of CDC Global Services, serving as moderator; and a closing speech by Rita Liu, general manager of the ERP Solutions Practice for CDC Global Services in China.
