Industrial Parks in China

Zhongguancun Science Park


  • Long history of being an industrial area since 1950s

  • In June 1999, the State Council of China officially approved the request to Expedite the Building of Zhongguancun Science Park

  • Duplicate the idea from Silicon Valley

  • Aim: to make the park a first-rate science park in the world within 10 years

  • Area: 217 sq km (~1/5 of Hong Kong)

  • Known as the ‘’electronics avenue’’

  • biggest science park in China

    -makes a contribution of 60% of the total industrial growth of Beijing

    -accounts for 18% of the total income of all the 53 national hi-tech parks

  • high concentration of scientific and technological institutions and intellectual resources

  • composed of five science zones: Haidian Zone Fengtai Zone Changping Zone Electronic City Zone Yizhuang Zone

  • Sub-parks: (Haidian Park, Fengtai Park, Changping Park Electronic Town, Yizhuang Park, Desheng Park, Yonghe Park Shijingshan Park, Tongzhou Park, Daxing CBP)

Zhongguancun Science Park


Factors affecting Industrial Locations

  • Raw materials

  • Market

  • Labour

  • Transport

  • Institutional

  • Technology

  • Energy

  • Behavioural

Labour &


Require skilled and quality labour

  • Close to nearby universities and institutes

  • 39 institutions of higher learningWell-known universities : Beijing University and the Tsinghua University

  • (best known for science and engineering)

    encourage students and professors to start their business and set up their

    own companies for R&D in the park

  • 213 research institutions For example: the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE)

  • state-level laboratories and important engineering and technology centers

    Over 489,000 technicians are employed

  • Pleasant living environment

  • Nice-working environment

  • Beautiful SceneryFor example, The Summer Palace, The Yuanmingyuan Park and Xiangshan

  • to attract and retain good quality professional workers


Research and Development

  • Over 12,000 new and hi-tech enterprises in the estate For example: Legend, Zhongguancun Science and Technology, Tsinghua Tongfang, Netease

  • 1500 R&D centers and hi-tech companies

  • set up by or invested by renowned overseas transnational companies

    Such as: IBM, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Siemens, NEC

  • Breed up many local enterprises like Stone Group (co-operated with Peking

    University), Founder Group (2nd largest personal computer

    manufacturer in China & spun off Chinese Academy of Sciences),

    Lenovo Group (the fourth largest computer manufacturer in the world)

  • Baidu and SINA Corporation are two companies known by China watchers in the West that were born and bred in Zhongguancun

  • accounts for 18% of the total income of all the 53 national hi-tech parks

Favorable factors

1. Provision of infrastructure, transport and utilities

  • High accessibility:

  • 3rd Ring Road, 4th Ring Road and 5th Ring Road, Beijing Capital International Airport and railway

  • Sufficient facilities

  • Hospital, stadium, hotel, shopping mall, universities etc.

  • 2. To attract foreign investment

  • Favorable Policy

  • Self-use equipment and supporting technologies, accessories and reserve parts shall be exempted from import duty and import linkage tax. Incomes from transferring self-developed technology shall be exempted from the business tax.

3. To promote IT industries

  • The development of the hi-tech industry, modern manufacturing and other projects invested under encouragement are encouraged. 4.To provide industrial land

  • To simplify the procedure for providing industrial land, land transfer fees, urban infrastructure construction expenses and partial administrative institutional fees are abatted

    5. To encourage innovation

  • 《 Zhongguancun science park regulation》since 1-1-2001:

  • - To protect intellectual property

  • - To confiscate pirated software CDs

Unfavorable factors

  • 1. Lack of leveraged buyout channel

  • enterprise was difficult to raise capital

  • 2. Fail in protecting intellectual property

  • 《 Zhongguancun science park regulation》is ineffective

  • Numerous hawkers nearby selling pirated software produced in the science park

  • Discourage enterprise to research and develop

  • 3. Serious traffic congestion near the science park

  • Discourage professional engineer to work in the park

  • 4. Location mismatch between R&D and manufacturing

  • Zhongguancun is the R&D centre

  • Manufacturing base of electronic products and computers is in GuangDong

  • Inefficient to implement the new product developed in Beijing but produced in GuangDong (ShenZhen, Dongguan)

  • 5. International companies move their centre away from Zhongguancun

  • 52 international IT companies such as Intel, HP, IBM, Cisco set up their headquarter in Jiaoyang instead of Zhongguancun

  • Jiaoyang is close to foreign consulate, and enable companies for international communication

  • Jiaoyang provides the best infrastructure in Beijing

  • 6. Guangdong being a competitor of Zhongguancun

  • Guangdong has a lot of famous universities that provide many IT professionals(e.g.Guangdong university of Technology, Zhongshan University)

  • Guangdong is close to Hong Kong and ShenZhen that attract more investment than Zhongguancun

  • The manufacturing base of computer and electronic products is in Guangdong, it is more convenient to link up R&D and manufacturing
