Nissan forms partnership with China's Tsinghua University

SUZHOU, China —

Nissan Motor Co and Suzhou Automobile Research Institute at Tsinghua University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, in which the two parties have agreed to promote a cooperative effort regarding the research of future automotive technology. Aiming to solidify the strategic joint research efforts between Nissan and Tsinghua University, the agreement includes a mutual personnel exchange program designed to take advantage of both parties’ strengths.

While China has grown to become the largest automobile market in the world, Nissan aspires to create and contribute new ideas to the future of its mobility society. In order for Nissan to accomplish this goal, it needs a strong local partner to aid in the understanding and research of the unique challenges China poses, especially for advanced technologies. It is for this reason that Nissan has decided to form a multi-faceted and comprehensive partnership with the Suzhou Automobile Research Institute, which is based on Tsinghua University, an institution that has already been involved with Nissan on several joint research projects related to automobile technology.

    Dear Nissan, if you're reading this, I think you should know that China is popularly known as a "copy cat" and by the mere fact that you wanted to help them, I don't think it's doing you any good because one, they'll learn from you and soon copy your technology, and two, once they've already learned how to do everything, they'll toss and neglect you. The only way here is just share something which you two can help each other to make it better. Remember the MOU contract can have loopholes if not fully studied and Chinese people are good with this so be extremely careful. It's not all about the money sometimes.
