Default GM establishes science lab in China

Quote:
Shanghai, China – General Motors has announced the establishment of its China Science Lab in Shanghai, which will carry out research projects in a number of automotive-related fields for GM.
As the first major science lab established by a global automaker in China, it will contribute to technological innovation, both domestically and on a worldwide basis.
“Our vision for the China Science Lab is to be recognized as a world-class R&D organization that will help drive GM’s automotive business into the future,” said Alan Taub, vice-president of global research and development. “Our aim is to develop breakthrough technologies that will differentiate GM vehicles in the marketplace and build on GM’s long history of industry firsts. The China Science Lab’s opening demonstrates that GM is moving aggressively to maintain leadership in breakthrough technological research globally.”
The lab’s initial focus will be on research related to advanced propulsion technology and joining technology. It will also focus on battery cells, megacity safety research, advanced vehicle development and light materials. It will carry out collaborative work with universities and government-run scientific institutions across China, and is expected to employ up to 100 staff during its early stages of operation

"but the money goes back to..." isn't that the same argument we hear against the imports? Gues it goes to show you that even GM has given up on itself.
