Dell (DELL.NASDAQ, 4331.HK) said Thursday it plans to spend US$100 billion in China over the next decade and open an operations center in Chengdu in 2011, amid expectations that the country will remain one of the fastest-growing markets for personal computers, AP reported. The manufacturing, sales and service center could eventually employ more than 3,000 people. The Texas-based tech company currently employs about 6,000 workers in manufacturing and other operations in Xiamen, a product design and engineering center in Shanghai and a service center in Dalian. Chengdu is already home to manufacturing plants run by high-tech firms such as Intel (INTC.NASDAQ, 4335.HK, INCO.Euronext), IBM (IBM.NYSE) and Nokia (NOK.NYSE, NOA3.FWB). China is Dell’s second-largest source of revenue after the US. The company spent US$23 billion in China in 2009.
