The fully owned Changzhou-based company will serve as the center for future collaborations with potential Chinese customers
NESS ZIONA, ISRAEL - News Direct - 10 January 2022 - Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX), ("Foresight" or the "Company"), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today it has deepened its Chinese footprint with the establishment of Foresight Changzhou Automotive Ltd., ("Foresight Changzhou"), a wholly owned subsidiary, in Jiangsu Province, China.
The Chinese subsidiary was established in cooperation with the China-Israel Changzhou Innovation Park (CIP), a bi-national governmental initiative that provides a unique platform for Israeli industrial companies seeking to enter the Chinese market. With the support of CIP's facilities and its dedicated staff, Foresight Changzhou will receive a package of incentives and grants from the Jiangsu Province's government to aid in overcoming barriers and achieving success in China. The subsidiary will hire local engineers and high-quality staff, who will be based in CIP.
"As our network of cooperation and connections in the Chinese market broadens, establishing a local presence is imperative. The Chinese automotive industry is rapidly growing and has become one of the world's most prominent markets. We believe that having a local entity will facilitate our access to Chinese vehicle manufacturers and Tier One automotive suppliers and will potentially increase local collaborations and joint venture undertakings. This decision enables us to significantly expand our presence in China and supports our strategy to become a dominant player in the Asia-Pacific automotive market," said Haim Siboni, Chief Executive Officer of Foresight.
