[photopress:zones_qilu_software_park.jpg,full,alignright]Qilu Software Park, the high-tech zone established in November 1995 was identified two years later by the Ministry of Science and Technology identified as the first national ‘State Torch Program software industrial base.’
Three years after that it as officially recognized as a ‘national software industrial base.’
Qilu Software Park covers 650 square kilometers which is kept pretty green.
The Industry Area is 320,000 square meters; research and development base 270,000 square meters; 400,000 square-meter production base for electronic products; Training 150,000 square meters; facilities (including residential) 800,000 square meters. And the rest is green.
Qilu Software Park adheres to the principle of ‘creating an environment to stimulate the industry, promoting development and enhancing’ the park development.
Qilu Software Park, after 10 years of development, has 413 enterprises. Since 2000, economic indicators have risen at a rate of over 50% a year. Software Parks in 2005 the total income from technology, industry and trade enterprises will reach RMB24.4 billion.
An example of what is happening.
Jinan Yinquan Technology the wholly owned subsidiary of China VoIP & Digital, has received two governmental awards which were granted earlied this month at the Qilu Software Park Annual Honor Conference 2007.
The two awards are the 2007 Top Growth Enterprise Award and the 2007 Excellent Enterprise for Statistical Work. In addition, the General Manager of the company, Mr. Wang Qinghua, was awarded the 2007 Special Contribution Individual Award of Enterprise Union for his outstanding achievements as the Deputy Director of Communications Technology Union of China International ICT Innovation Cluster.
Yinquan received the most awards among the 500 enterprises in Qilu Software Park.
Which is all very praiseworthy. What is interesting is some of the direction it is going.
China VoIP & Digital Telecom offers Voice over the Internet Protocol telecommunications services in China through its wholly owned subsidiary Jinan Yinquan Technology.
You can probably make the case that in three years from now all overseas calls will be VoIP which will have a higher quality of sound and a greater certainty of connection than traditional methods which cost much more. Much of China’s innovation in this are will come from Gilu Software Park.
