[photopress:zone_taiyuan.jpg,full,alignright]In Taiyuan, there are three predominant economic zones: the Taiyuan Economic and Technological Development Zone, the Taiyuan High-Tech Industry Development Zone, and the Taiyuan Non-Public Economic Development Zone.
The Taiyuan High-tech Industry Development Zone is a state-level high-tech zone approved by the State Council, the earliest one in Shanxi province. Its planning area is 60.8 square kilometers. At which point we have to pause and consider the area is bigger than many towns.
The zone has entrances to Jing-Tai expressway, Da-Yun expressway and Tat-Jiu expressway. It is close to Wusu Airport.
There are more than 1,500 enterprises settled in the zone and about 300 of those are high-tech enterprises.
A pattern of ‘zero fee’ in management and ‘one stop in service for examination and approval procedures’ has been launched.
What is excellent is that, along with the development of this zone, Taiyuan has taken care of the environment. The construction of parks and recreational areas on both sides of the Fen River have been specifically praised by the UN Environmental Program.
