In­dus­trial map will guide in­vestors

Shanghai Daily - - TOP NEWS - Yuan Luhang

SHANG­HAI is­sued an in­dus­trial map yes­ter­day that spells out in­vest­ment guid­ance and de­vel­op­ment plans for in­dus­tries.

Ten in­vest­ment projects were also signed be­tween overseas com­pa­nies and dis­tricts yes­ter­day at the Pro­mo­tion Con­fer­ence on Overseas In­vest­ment in Shang­hai In­dus­try, one of the sup­port ac­tiv­i­ties at the CIIE. The to­tal in­vest­ment agree­ment was 3.78 bil­lion yuan (US$540 mil­lion).

The in­dus­trial map will guide in­vestors to clus­ter in re­lated ar­eas, and help big projects to set­tle in suit­able dis­tricts in Shang­hai. It aims to op­ti­mize the in­dus­trial ori­en­ta­tion and the in­dus­trial lay­out of dis­tricts and key ar­eas in Shang­hai.

It fo­cuses on dig­i­tal in­dus­try, emerg­ing in­dus­try, modern ser­vice in­dus­try and modern agri­cul­ture.

The map cov­ers pri­mary, se­condary and ter­tiary in­dus­tries. It is split into two parts, the sta­tus quo map and the fu­ture map drawn from di­men­sions of space and in­dus­try.

The space di­men­sion in­cludes 16 dis­tricts and 67 key ar­eas in Shang­hai, and the in­dus­try di­men­sion in­cludes 27 key in­dus­tries such as fi­nance and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence.

The sta­tus quo map pro­vides in­vestors in­for­ma­tion about en­ter­prises and in­no­va­tive re­sources and the lay­out of re­lated en­ter­prises. The fu­ture map lays out over­all plan­ning for gen­eral, space and in­dus­try dis­tri­bu­tion for dis­tricts and key ar­eas in Shang­hai.

For ex­am­ple, the sta­tus quo map for the bio-medicine in­dus­try shows that its re­sources are crowded in the mid­dle and south ar­eas of the Pudong New Area, es­pe­cially in Zhangjiang High-tech Park. On the fu­ture map, the re­sour­cein­ten­sive ar­eas of Pudong will be the big­gest de­vel­op­ment and man­u­fac­tur­ing cen­ter for bio-medicine and med­i­cal ma­chines.

It al­lows in­vestors to choose their lo­ca­tion with an eye on the fu­ture.

Ada, a Ger­man-based com­pany in­volved in AI aux­il­iary di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment tech­nolo­gies, pre­ferred to set­tle in Zhangjiang High-tech Park chiefly for its densely-pop­u­lated med­i­cal re­sources and em­pha­sis on tech­nolo­gies, ac­cord­ing to Paul An­thony Ja­ki­ciw, Ada CBO.

The gov­ern­ment hopes the in­dus­try maps will help in­vestors to eas­ily choose suit­able ar­eas to es­tab­lish them­selves in.
