What does the China-Belgium Innovation Technology Industrial Park look like? In the evening of 18th when the Chairman of Hua Yong Investment Group, Li Yong, accepted the interview of our magazine, he introduced that: the Industrial Park is located in the Technology Park of the New Leuven University of Walloon State in Belgium with the lease period of 99 years, a total investment of 1.5 billion Yuan; it plans to build an area of about 100,000 square meters which is expected to be completed in 2015; the first phase of the project will build a "Pentagon" and the incubator business center, biological technology center, optic communication center, green engineering center and internet of things center will respectively enter into the Pentagon building.
With the geographical advantage of Belgium which is located in the heart of Europe and its status as the political center, China-BelgiumInnovation Technology Industrial Park will become an important service platform for the Chinese technology companies to enter into the European market. The project location, Walloon state, is directly connected to all the European decision-making centers 500 km around, and Paris, London, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Frankfurt can be reached within a few hours; the European Commission and the European Parliament, NATO, European Air Traffic Control Organization and World Customs Organizations are stationed here together with about 1,500 international institutions, 220 representative offices for cities and regions and 160 embassies.
Li Yong introduced that, on one hand, the Chinese market shows the strong demand and strength to attract large-scale technology products and services, and on the other hand Belgium and the new Leuven area have a huge reserve of high-tech information technology, so the establishment of China-BelgiumInnovation Technology Industrial Park can be described as one shot for two together. It has three main functions for the technological innovation for Hubei Province and even the whole China:
Relying on the technical precipitation by centuries of industrialization in Europe and the latest scientific and technological achievements ofNew Leuven University to develop the technology - business - industrial incubators, it will turn the European innovation achievements into competitive business products to be introduced to China, between China and form an international technology transfer platform between China and EU. This can effectively avoid the embarrassment of the frequent use of European R & D project which is often judged as infringement on the foreign patents.
As the bridgehead for Chinese enterprises to enter into Europe, it can provide European industrial policy, technology exchanges, cultural promotion and other services. As to Wuhan, it currently has 90 various kinds of science and technology incubators, second only to Beijing, Shanghai, ranking the third place in the country; up to last year, 2,624 technology companies had graduated from the incubators in the city. According to the plan of Ju Xing International Company, all kinds of technology incubators can be grafted onto the China-BelgiumInnovation Technology Industrial Park through a variety of ways, which also opens a convenient door for the good domestic technical enterprises to enter into the Europe.
Accelerate the “intermarriage” between Hubei Province and Walloon State. Walloon State in Belgium and the Investment Department have set up two representative offices in Wuhan through this industrial park project; with the further deepening of bilateral cooperation, the establishment of the Consulate General in Wuhan can be expected.
