Microsoft upbeat on China

MICROSOFT Corp has confi­dence in the “resilient growth” of the Chinese economy and market during the pandemic and is seeking business ex­pansion and opportunities in digital transformation and vari­ous online and cloud services, the head of Microsoft China said in Shanghai yesterday.

The company will continue expanding and investing in China and plans to recruit an additional 1,500 people in the country next year, said Alain Crozier, Microsoft China chairman and CEO.

China will be the only major economy to grow in 2020, he said, with a high growth rate of GDP in 2021 certain amid robust foreign investment and “resilient growth” engines in the long term. Multinationals, including Microsoft, have an op­timistic outlook of the Chinese market, Crozier said.

Specific opportunities for Microsoft included hybrid workplaces, and redefined cus­tomer engagement.
