A subsidiary of Chinese trainmaker, China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), said Saturday it had established an Asia-Pacific headquarters and a research & development center in Australia.
The Melbourne-based headquarters will help provide technology support for train design, manufacturing and maintenance in the region, according to CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Company in Northeast China's Jilin province.
"The office will create more job and export opportunities for local train manufacturers," said Wang Run, chairman of CRRC Changchun.
The office employs 41 local workers.
In November 2016, CRRC Changchun signed a deal with Victoria to build high-capacity metro trains worth $1.5 billion, the biggest metro train purchasing project in the Australian state's history.
CRRC Changchun has more than 18,000 employers and annually manufactures more than 8,000 trains.
