Transnational corporations have increased their research and development force in China. IBM has opened three major research and development institutions in China to the public for the first time - the IBM China Research Laboratory (CRL), the IBM China Development Laboratory (CDL), and the IBM China Business Innovation Center (CBIC). Intel and Lenovo both announced that they will create the first "innovative business computer technology platform accelerator" in the world.

The latest data shows that China already has about 800 foreign-invested research and development (R&D) centers. Quite a few R&D centers are not only regional R&D bases, but they have also become important global R&D centers.

The IBM China Development Laboratory (CDL) is the largest development laboratory of transnational corporations in China today; and it is also one of IBM's five major global development laboratories. Currently, much of IBM's five major software brands are developed in China.

Microsoft invested heavily in the establishment of Microsoft Research Asia in Beijing, which is the second fundamental, overseas research institution; and also Microsoft's only fundamental research arm in Asia Pacific. Many technologies developed here have been applied to core products of Microsoft.
