Facilitating the construction of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor to create a national hotbed of sci-tech innovation

According to the 2017 national high-tech zones evaluation results recently released by the Torch High Technology Industry Development Center of the Ministry of Science & Technology (Torch Center), Songshan Lake High-tech Industrial Development Zone has risen from the 26th to the 23rd place in terms of comprehensive strength, marking the substantial achievements in innovation-driven development made by Songshan Lake in the past year.

In 2015, Songshan Lake High-tech Zone was incorporated into the construction of Pearl River Delta National Self-dependent Innovation Demonstration Area. Now as more and more elements of innovation are flowing into the Zone in a more rapid manner, Songshan Lake is playing an increasingly leading role in the innovation-driven development of Dongguan. As one of the 10 core innovation platforms of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor, Songshan Lake is working hard to build itself into both a global sci-tech park and a national sci-tech innovation hotbed.

Songshan Lake High-tech Zone accommodates 250 high-tech enterprises.

As the data released by the Torch Center shows, Songshan Lake ranks the 23rd place in the national level, the 3rd in the provincial level and the 1st in the municipal level. To be more specific, Songshan Lake has risen from the 22nd to the 15th place in terms of internationalization and global competition participation competence and ranked the 21st place in terms of industrial upgrading and structural optimization ability. In 2016, Songshan Lake's comprehensive strength topped the 26th, as a matter of fact indicating the enhancement of a series of quantized economic data.

Dongguan Powerwise Technology Co., Ltd. is a high-tech enterprise located in Songshan Lake High-tech Zone. After years of technological accumulation and market exploration, now Dongguan Powerwise has become the hidden champion in the battery management system sector at home. In 2017, Dongguan Powerwise witnessed soaring business performance with sales revenue of 200 million Chinese yuan, an increase of 123% from 89.56 billion Chinese yuan in 2016. Dongguan Powerwise is expected to continue to develop at high speed in 2018.

In 2017, Songshan Lake has made considerable progress in fostering national high-tech enterprises. 145 enterprises have been applied for being recognized as a high-tech, while 126 have been applied for being listed into the high-tech enterprise cultivation program. Songshan Lake has a total number of 250 high-tech enterprises, ranking No. 1 in the city.

Centering on the "4+1" industrial system, Songshan Lake is vigorously developing the R&D and headquarter enterprises, making the intelligent equipment and biological medicine industries bigger and stronger, speeding up the development of the modern service industry and expanding the new energy and other strategic emerging industries, thus creating a lively situation in which all major industries are running neck and neck with the high-end information industry.

Mr. Jiang Yongdong, a high-level talent of Dongguan, has been working in Songshan Lake for a few years and now his scientific research project in Dongguan Innovation Center of Research Institute of Tsinghua University in Shenzhen is progressing smoothly. In his opinion, Songshan Lake is a better place than the United States in terms of either ecological environment or conditions for innovating and starting a business. Jiang is engaged in R&D of nano materials and in Songshan Lake, he always can find a cooperative enterprise and expand the market quickly. Favorable talent motivation policies, all-round business incubation mechanism and sufficient capital for industrialization have all become the advantages that attract high-level talents to settle down in Songshan Lake.

According to the statistics, Songshan Lake now accommodates 26 new R&D institutions. In 2016, Songshan Lake was listed as a provincial talent development reform experimental area. Up to December 2017, Songshan Lake High-tech Zone has been home to 34 experts that have been listed into the Thousand Talents Plan, 7 provincial and 60 municipal leading talents in innovation and business startup and 139 municipal talents with special characteristics as well as 30 post-doctoral scientific research platforms, 5 workstations for academicians and experts and 45 engineering and technological research centers at national, provincial and municipal levels.

Between January and November 2017, Songshan Lake High-tech Zone has newly increased 3 provincial and 5 municipal business incubators and 4 provincial maker spaces and has been expected to have a total of 8 national business incubators. The incubating and fostering system in the Zone has been improving step by step.

In April last year, G-Cloud Technology was officially listed on the National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ). G-Cloud is the first high-tech enterprise that has been incubated by the Cloud Computing Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and is hoping to build the automatic cloud computing industrial ecology. After getting listed on NEEQ, G-Cloud started developing at a fast pace.

In 2017, Songshan Lake High-tech Zone newly increased 6 NEEQ-listed enterprises and 4 to-be-listed local enterprises. Up to now, the Zone has 3 listed (public) enterprises, 26 NEEQ-listed enterprises and 24 to-be-listed enterprises, ranking the first place in the whole city.

Innovation and business startup ecological system is perfecting gradually.

Aggregation of elements of innovation cant do without the construction of an ecological system for innovation and business startup. In 2017, Songshan Lake High-tech Zone, through uninterruptedly enhancing services, sturdily promoting the construction of new R&D institutions and incubators and constantly improving the sci-tech innovation system, saw a significant rise of its independent innovation ability.

By means of optimizing sci-tech innovation policy environment, perfecting sci-tech fund release management mechanism, strengthening sci-tech project and platform management and service, enhancing the intellectual property service ability, improving the construction of sci-tech innovation platform system and following up major projects and platform construction, Songshan Lake has optimized its sci-tech management and service mechanism.

Last year, Songshan Lake's first public experiment platform, namely Motion Control Precision Measurement Lab, was officially inaugurated. This is also the first public technology service platform which is funded by government finance and operated by an entrusted enterprise. Up to now, the Lab has carried out more than 200 test tasks. Songshan Lake High-tech Zone is hoping to, with the Motion Control Precision Measurement Lab as the starting point, build more similar public service platforms so as to provide strong technical support to the local enterprises.

Aggregation of elements of innovation cant do without finance. By the end of September 2017, banks within the Songshan Lake High-tech Zone have granted total loans of 11.003 billion Chinese yuan to the high-tech enterprises, including 1.779 billion Chinese yuan of credit loans and 2.799 billion Chinese yuan of enterprise loans. Among all these banks, three of them have granted total loans of 2.939 billion Chinese yuan and 2.434 billion Chinese yuan to internal enterprises and external enterprises respectively, showing good radiation effect. An all-round sci-tech financial service system is taking shape.

In April 2017, Songshan Lake Fund Town started construction and at the end of November, its entering and major projects landing ceremony was officially held. At the ceremony, the first batch of 30 funds officially joined the Fund Town and a major project valuing 11 billion Chinese yuan was signed on the scene. By virtue of Songshan Lake's regional advantages and good resources from Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, Songshan Lake Fund Town will build itself into a characteristic fund industry ecosystem that is integrated with fund chain, sci-tech chain, industry chain, talent chain and education chain.

Songshan Lake High-tech Zone also actively guided the transformation of sci-tech achievements made by the new R&D institutions. On the one hand, it guided the new R&D institutions in establishing sci-tech enterprise incubators by marketized means, introducing social capital to build funds and uniting with sci-tech enterprise incubators in participating in a variety of innovation & entrepreneurship competitions, thus promoting sci-tech achievement transformation. On the other hand, it propelled the new R&D institutions to try direct transformation of their own core technologies.

Under the support of the innovation & entrepreneurship system, many industries in Songshan Lake realized cluster development. For example, the robot industry showed the cluster-type development trend and in 2017, more than 50 enterprises from the robot and intelligent equipment industries newly moved into the Zone and 18 national high-tech enterprises were approved. To be specific, there was one high-tech enterprise every 4 robot enterprises.

A new round of innovation-driven development kicks off.

The leap of Songshan Lakes ranking in terms of comprehensive strength not only highlights the remarkable success in innovation-driven development, but also signifies the greater burden to be assumed. In 2018, Songshan Lake will continue to study and carry out in depth the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and grasp the opportunities brought by the construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor, thus unveiling a new round of innovation-driven development.

According to the plan, Songshan Lake is expected to become one of the two innovative cores for the construction of the Dongguan section of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor. As for the position of Songshan Lake, Dongguan government proposes building it into a global sci-tech park and a national sci-tech innovation hotbed. The advancement of its comprehensive strength will certainly make Songshan Lake more confident in joining the construction of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor.

Planning the Park as a whole is one of the supporting points for Dongguan to join the construction of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor and Songshan Lake Area is the pilot area. As the core engine of Dongguans innovation-driven development, Songshan Lake will integrate surrounding resources, encourage sharing of major sci-tech platforms and infrastructures and promote free mobility and in-depth integration of talents, technologies, funds and information, striving to build the Songshan Lake Area into a pioneer area of Guangdongs national sci-tech industrial innovation center.

Based on spallation neutron source, now Dongguan is building a neutron science city. During this construction process, Songshan Lake will take the advantage of being in a favored position to gather a batch of large-scale scientific facilities, R&D platforms and centers and also industrialization bases, thus bringing the advanced cutting-edge technology of spallation neutron source into local enterprises and driving the strategic development of the emerging industries.

The year 2018 marks the beginning of implementing the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. Songshan Lake will integrate closely with the actual situations in the Park while implementing the Spirit and will unswervingly boost innovation-driven development while always adhering to that innovation is the primary force guiding development. In addition, Songshan Lake will strive for breakthroughs in control of core technologies, transformation of innovation achievements and aggregation of innovation resources, and also will give full play to its supporting, leading and benchmarking role in the innovation-driven development of Dongguan. By seizing the historical opportunities brought by the construction of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Sci-tech Innovation Corridor and vigorously carrying out the escalated strategies of innovation-driven development, Songshan Lake is committed to building itself into a central spine of said Corridor and a hotbed of national sci-tech innovations.
