HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - January 22, 2018 - Deloitte is pleased to announce the opening of its Xi'an office in Shanxi province, with the vision of helping domestic and foreign companies take full advantage of the Belt & Road Initaitve and capture growing opportunities in Western China as the country's new economic engine. This will be the 3rd office for Deloitte's Western region practice and the 22nd office in its business network in China.

Deloitte is widely embraced and trusted by clients across the world.
Terence Cheung, Deloitte China Western Region Managing Partner, stated, "Xi'an is the cradle of the Chinese civilization, as well as a priority city in China. Under President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road Initiative, Xi'an has been endowed with new historical value as the starting point of the Silk Road, driving infrastructural development in the Silk Road economic belt and once again becoming an economic, cultural and commercial hub in the region. By setting up an office in Xi'an, Deloitte is making a crucial step on its path to expanding its professional services network in the China market. This also signifies a pioneering move in our firm's plan to develop in high potential regions."
"As we can see, Xi'an enterprises are actively hoping to achieve sustainable development in local and regional markets by seizing the opportunities along the Silk Road Economic Belt. We have chosen to set up a new office in Xi'an at this auspicious time to align ourselves with the demands of local government and enterprises, with the ultimate aim of helping them realize strategic goals, and to assist with Xi'an's long-term growth and development," Cheung added.
"In alignment with the national Belt and Road Initiative, we are excited about the abundance of business prospects that our new Xi'an office is expected to bring. As more enterprises along the Belt and Road Initiative route seek to expand into the Western China market, Xi'an's strong talent, technology and culture base and strategic geographical position will provide a convenient nexus for these companies to set up a regional base in China. Deloitte, with our comprehensive range of services in audit & assurance, financial advisory, risk advisory, consulting, as well as tax and legal, and our comprehensive global network is poised to be a supportive pillar for domestic and international clients ready to go global and to tap into the Chinese market, who will no doubt require extensive assistance on professional services," said Patrick Tsang, Deloitte China CEO.
