GZ-SZ SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION CORRIDOR PLAN OK’D
    2017-12-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE State Council has given the go-ahead to the official planning of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Corridor, Guangdong provincial authorities announced at a press conference Wednesday.

The corridor, which stretches over 180 kilometers and covers a total area of 11,836 square kilometers, is setting its sights on growing into China’s Silicon Valley, according to the plan.

Located on the east side of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the innovation corridor is an economic belt that connects Guangzhou, Dongguan and Shenzhen to accumulate the best innovation resources from the three cities, and aims to become the nation’s major innovation engine and gateway for the province to connect with global innovation trends, according to the plan.

The corridor, set for completion by 2030, will become the core of the Pearl River Delta National Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone and a globally influential innovation enterprise cluster.

Shenzhen is the key node in the global layout of high-tech giants. Apple, Microsoft, Intel and other high-tech overseas enterprises have set up research and development divisions in Shenzhen. Guangzhou is the basic innovation center of South China with a large number of colleges, universities and research institutes. Dongguan has gathered a large number of manufacturing enterprises and industrial parks, and is the main area for innovation and technology transformation.

This April, President Xi instructed Guangdong to facilitate China’s supply-side structural reform, implement an innovation-driven development strategy and build an open economy. In May, following Xi’s instructions, the province proposed the idea of developing the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Corridor at the 12th provincial Party congress.

In recent years, Guangdong has adopted an innovation-driven development strategy and upgraded its industrial structure. In 2016, the province saw 250,000 new patents licensed and 20,000 international patent applications, in addition to 160,000 valid invention patents, topping all other regions in China. Currently, there are about 20,000 high-tech enterprises in Guangdong, accounting for over one-third of all innovative enterprises and ranking the province first in China in that category.

With a total area taking up 15 percent of the Pearl River Delta, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Dongguan yield about 60 percent of the region’s GDP. The three cities have a solid foundation for innovative economy, being home to over 60 percent of the high-tech enterprises in the province.

Eight local enterprises in the area have entered the Fortune Global 500 list and world-renowned enterprises, such as Huawei, Tencent, ZTE, DJI, OPPO and Vivo, have enjoyed stable development here.

“The corridor gained its name because the industries, elements and enterprises necessary for innovation have all gathered here, which has formed a cluster of innovation. The Guangzhou-Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Corridor has everything needed,” said Guo Wanda, executive vice president of the China (Shenzhen) Development Institute.
