Dell has opened a facility in Singapore to design products including projectors and TV sets. Dell declined to say how many employees will work at the Singapore center. But the company said it will focus on display and imaging products, and will join four other design centers that Dell has set up in Taiwan, China, India and the United States. The team in Singapore joins more than 4,000 engineering professionals at Dell worldwide. “Singapore offers a robust technology ecosystem, with the right elements in place–a highly skilled, highly educated talent pool that’s relevant to our needs; a pro-business environment; sound infrastructure and good connectivity; well-regulated yet flexible financial infrastructure; and sound intellectual property management and protection policies,” Dell Chief Executive Kevin Rollins said.

"Singapore offers a robust technology ecosystem, with the right elements in

needs; a pro-business environment; sound infrastructure and good connectivity;
well-regulated yet flexible financial infrastructure; and sound intellectual
property management and protection policies," Dell Chief Executive Kevin Rollins
said in a statement.

The Singapore location offers other benefits too, according to Dell. "With
Singapore being one of our key regional bases since 1995, we are able to
leverage our corporate infrastructure that’s already in place," Rollins said.
"We can also maintain our competitiveness by being near where we source key
technologies used in our displays and imaging products. Being close to our
supplier base lets us reap the benefits of streamlined sourcing and
distribution, translating into value products at competitive pricing to
customers in Singapore as well as in other parts of the world."
