Sun Xuewei, deputy director of the General Office in the Guangzhou Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone (seen in our illustration), has helped entrepreneurs establish and grow their businesses for more than a decade. He was one of the main speakers on ‘Investment, Development and Entrepreneurship in China’.
He made presentations on high-tech development zones across China and favorable policies for attracting entrepreneurs.
Two other officials who gave presentations were Wu Xiaohua, director of the Department of Research Project Management at the Academy of Macroeconomic Research, a section of the cabinet-level National Development and Reform Commission responsible for providing economic guidelines for decision-makers in China.
The event was sponsored by the Chinese Overseas Exchange Association.
According to Manufacturing and Technology News in 2006, China surpassed the United States as the world’s largest exporter, reaching $404 billion compared to U.S.$367 billion. China’s manufactured exports are expected to more than double those of the United States by 2011. Its economic boom has built up $1.2 trillion in currency reserves, the largest in the world. None of which negates the need to bring scientific and technological co-operation between the two countries. This seminar was part of that process.
