Most Chinese small & medium-sized enterprises don't use computers

Interesting article:

http://www.chinanews.cn//business/2007-04-12/35075.html

Chinanews,Beijing, April 12 - Latest statistics show that about 68% of 42 million small and medium-sized enterprises in China are not equipped with computers, and 63% of them have not set up websites. Obviously, this potential market of 500 billion yuan will boom, and offer a great opportunity to local IT industry.

According to the report by CCID Consulting, 99.8% of Chinese enterprises fall into the category of small and medium-sized ones, and they provide 58% of the service and products.

Most of them say no to computers at present from a costs perspective, as it takes time and money to buy computers and to train employees to use them, not to mention that they will have to transfer their documents and files into the computers, too. Even 30% of the enterprises with websites only take the Internet as a place for ads, without taking part in the booming E-commerce. Only 10% of them have realized the convenience that informatization might offer.

The Chinese government is willing to support the informatization of small and medium-sized enterprises, which is a major goal of the 11th Five-Year Plan
