SONGLIN GROUP, formerly named Songbin System International, was established in northern Virginia in America in October 1992. Its headquarters had been located in Reston first then moved to Falls Church in 2003. Our original service pattern was to be retained by western companies to develop infrastructure projects in China. Our first significant project was to help a US IPP to establish a joint venture with a Chinese state-owned power company to develop a $400 million (2 x 300MW) power generation expansion project in northern China. After 1997 Asian financial crisis, we have shifted our business focus to include independent information service under the trademark of China Market Series (CMS) through electronically delivered monthly or quarterly China industrial newsletters, tailored studies, and comprehensive market reports. Our client base is expanded from international IPPs and related services to more diversified businesses such as energy majors, investment banks, and fund managements.

The past five years witnessed even more fundamental and fast changes in China. Business environment will become more complicated, especially within a faltering global economy. SONGLIN has restructured into a more suitable position to better serve both existing and potential clients.
