Shenyang High-Tech Industrial Development Zone
Founded in May of 1988, Shenyang High-tech Industrial Development Zone (formerly the Shenyang Nanhu Science and Technology Development Zone) is one of the first of China’s high-tech industrial development zones to be approved by the Chinese State Council, and is also one of the five comprehensive reform pilot zones confirmed by the Chinese State Science and Technology Commission and State Economic Reform Commission.
The high-tech zone is the cradle of Shenyang’s science and technology culture. Notable institutions in the area include Northeastern University, Shenyang Pharmaceutical University, 12 other universities; 28 municipal or higher-level individual research institutes, 8 national grade engineering centers and laboratories, 220 large laboratories with 23,000 intermediate and high-level professional scientists. Ever since its inception, the Shenyang High-Tech Industrial Development Zone has been highly acclaimed for its output of high-tech innovation and has been a breeding ground for more than 100 plus foreign-invested projects.
Shenyang’s high-tech zone clearly stands out from the crowd, ranking highly among the 53 national high-tech development zones in terms of focus on economy and for taking a holistic and well-rounded approach to development. Indeed, the area has already become the home base for high-tech industry related development in Liaoning province, as well as a hot spot for foreign investment, making it into a leader among Chinese cities seeking integration into the worldwide economy.
In the coming 6 years, (2019 to 2025) the Shenyang high-tech industrial development zone will focus heavily on growing its three leading industries of advanced manufacturing, alternative energy vehicles and bio pharmaceuticals . To that end, the overall layout of the city will focus on building “One City” (the Science and Technology Mall), “Two Districts”(Nanta Industry Experimental Zone & Weinan Industrial Zone), and “Three Parks” (a University, Private, and National Science Park); the purpose of this infrastructure is to support the industry growth of certain high-tech fields such as electronics and information; optical, mechanical and electronic integration; new materials, bio engineering , and high-tech innovation in the conservation and environmental protection industry. The goal of making these improvements is to ultimately turn the Shenyang High-Tech Industrial Development Zone into the “Silicon Valley” of northern China.
