The China Files: Tsinghua Holdings
Tsinghua Holdings has immense influence over China's scientific and technological competitiveness — it oversees eleven firms including chip industry golden child Tsinghua Unigroup. Through these subsidiaries it has spearheaded some of Beijing’s most ambitious efforts to acquire overseas technologies and form joint ventures with global firms including HP, Intel, Western Digital and Micron.
Its subsidiary TusHoldings has built science and technology parks in the U.S., U.K., South Korea, Russia and Israel. Its IT and security company Tsinghua Tongfang’s Nuctech works in 150 countries, including providing security equipment for the Rio Olympics, Belgian railways and the Australian customs department. Tsinghua Holdings also has an renminbi-denominated fund with Japan’s SBI Holdings and once had an asset management company with New Jersey investment manager Lord Abbett.
We’ve included links to corporate records in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Luxembourg, the U.K. and Hong Kong. And we found some great Chinese journal articles from the late 90s and early 2000s that really give you a sense of how Tsinghua Holdings started out.
This China File contains items from 1999 to February 2021.
About Our China Files Product
Each China File contains a brief introduction to a company and links to interesting and hard-to-find open source information about that company. We include items such as corporate registration documents, public filings, presentations, academic papers, patents, press releases, social media and court documents. We include files in English and Chinese, as well as other relevant languages. Where relevant, we insert material from our own archives, documents gathered by reporters at The Wire. Each item is listed chronologically from most recent to oldest and contains a hyperlink to the original source material. We also include a sprinkling of news for readers to contextualize our research.
At the end of the China File, we include an index of all individuals and companies mentioned in our files. For the methodology on our index, please see our FAQ page. All China Files have a minimum of 100 items, which is about 4 pages. However, for most companies, particularly older companies, our China Files will run to at least 10 pages or over 300 items.
