Below is the letter from Dr. Mitchell giving a short summary about his visit in China
"Dear Colleagues,
In June, I enjoyed my inaugural visit to China as IPC’s president and CEO. During that visit, David Bergman, IPC vice president of international relations, IPC China General Manager Leesha Peng and I had the pleasure of meeting with several of our member companies and their leaders, including Huawei, ZTE, Wistron, Lenovo, Brio, Jabil, Bosch, Kaifa, Avic Keeven and some of our association colleagues from Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association and China Printed Circuit Association. I also managed to make time for some meals with members of IPC China Electronics Manufacturing Services Council in Shenzhen, Beijing and Suzhou. During these visits we learned quite a bit about the needs and business challenges of our members. We also discussed where IPC might be able to help find solutions or connect members with others who can help them. In some cases, we identified IPC resources for members that they did not know about.
One of the priorities of a member-based organization like IPC is to help members with their business challenges. One of the ways we can be most effective is by maintaining a focus on bringing standards and training to the electronics industry to strengthen and unify it globally. These efforts tie directly with our mission statement: “IPC is a global trade association dedicated to furthering the competitive excellence and financial success of its members, who are participants in the electronics industry. In pursuit of these objectives, IPC will devote resources to management improvement and technology enhancement programs, the creation of relevant standards, protection of the environment, and pertinent government relations. IPC encourages the active participation of all its members in these activities and commits to full cooperation with all related organizations.” During my visits, many of our China members pointed out the importance of IPC standards and the need for additional standards to help them deal with current manufacturing challenges. I encouraged their interest and support and expect some new IPC standards projects will result from these visits. IPC China is celebrating its tenth year and has shown good growth throughout the past decade, just as China has grown in importance and reputation in the world for electronics manufacturing. IPC China is vital in IPC’s plans for the future and we expect to grow rapidly to serve your needs in China. As part of my trip, I was able to visit with CCPIT (China Council for the Promotion International Trade) to discuss how IPC might collaborate with the Chinese government to benefit the industry in China and how IPC in turn can have a greater impact in China.
While this was my first trip, I expect to be there frequently and I look forward to strengthening the new friendships I have begun to form in China".
