Frankfort, KY, Oct. 21, 2002 — PlanGraphics Inc. recently announced the creation of an International Division and the appointment of Minna Li as Vice President.
PlanGraphics created the Division to provide an increased focus on the international market. The Division will more actively pursue international projects funded by the World Bank, Asia Development Bank, U.S. Trade Development Agency, and other international development banks.
The International Division will provide a full range of GIS advisory and system integration services to their international clients and is currently working with the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau and the Sichuan Urban Environmental Project in several cities and provincial agencies.
“With the expedited economic development in China during the past 10 years, finding ways to better manage the development and growth of the urban area has become an urgent issue for the local governments.
