On October 23rd, Jinan held a briefing on the Sino-German SMEs Cooperation and Communication Conference 2018. A delegate from the High-tech Zone introduced the planning and construction of the Sino-German (Jinan) SME cooperation zone.
Sino-German (Jinan) SME Cooperation Zone is the first demonstration zone of Sino-German cooperation in the north of the Yangtze River. Located in Jinan High-tech Zone Airport Economic Zone, it lies beside the China-Europe Manufacturing Industry Park, one of the top 10 industrial parks in the High-tech Zone, with a planned area of 26 square kilometers. Airport Economic Zone is the core of Jinan International Inland Port, which integrates the advantages of international airports, Class A national railway ports, Sino-Europe freight train center, land-based port supervision center, bonded logistics center, postal logistics and Xiaoqing river transport. German elements are well integrated in the planning and industrial design of the Cooperation Zone, which is highly consistent with the spatial design of “core area + radiation area” and the industrial system of “3+2”. With a focus on the new generation IT manufacturing, automobile and new energy car, railway transit equipment and aerospace technology, and on knowledge-intensive service industry like industrial design, education training, science and technology, finance and intellectual property rights, the Cooperation Zone has formed a “double centers” model, which includes an R&D Center and a Manufacturing Center, and is embarking on the road of New Technology, New Industry, New Business Form and New Model. Through integrating industries and cities and biological empowerment, the High-tech zone is striving to become a Sino-Germany industrial park, featuring German standard and quality and Jinan characteristics, a world-leading smart manufacture zone and a demonstration zone for global SMEs cooperation.
Information about the planning of the cooperation zone will be officially released at the Sino-German SME Cooperation and Communication Conference 2018.
