Multinationals bring new opportunities to China's west
Other west-looking multinationals include Idaho-based Micron Technology, a major semiconductor firm, which established a manufacturing facility in Xi'an in March. Two days later, Applied Materials Inc., a major U.S. nanotechnology manufacturer, also opened a new technology support center in the city.
Western regions were becoming increasingly competitive over the east where land and labor costs had soared in recent years, said Shi Ying, deputy director of the Shaanxi Academy of Social Sciences.
