[photopress:industrial_zone_technology_park.jpg,full,alignright]Research and Markets, which claims to be the world’s largest market research resource with 382,776 reports, has published The Survey of China’s Innovative Hi-tech Development Zones.
With the establishment of the Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park (seen in our illustration), in 1988 , China’s Hi-Tech Development Zones (HTDZs), after 20 years’ development, have gradually entered a mature development period.With the unprecedented economical prosperity and the significant impact of information technology, HTDZs faces both new opportunities and new challenges.In China, the traditional Science and Technology Park programming method can not satisfy the demand of the new economical situation, therefore it is necessary to introduce new thoughts and new methods to deal with the challenges, while at the same time seizing the development opportunities.Faced with the increasingly fierce competition in the economic globalization era, independent innovations now have been elevated to national strategy, for the biggest developing country, China.In 2007, China’s Hi-Tech Development Zones eleventh five-year plan outline was formulated and promulgated, marking the coming of a new development stage of HTDZs, with clearer targets.According to the outline, the development of HTDZ should follow ‘Six Principles’, realize ‘Five Changes’, achieve ‘Four Promotions’ and build up ‘Three Types of Zones’ within the Eleventh Five-Year period.Â
The report The Survey of China’s Hi-tech Development Zone covers most of the information that exists on technological parks. It costs $3,687, which, while expensive, is not out of line with the price of similar reports.
