Suzhou (Day 3 - Day 4)

Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) is an advanced industrial zone in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China, known for its internationalization, innovation, and eco-friendliness. Developed through a collaboration between the Chinese and Singaporean governments, this park boasts extensive experience in international cooperation. SIP focuses on developing high-tech industries, attracting numerous innovative enterprises and research institutions. It also offers an excellent ecological environment, efficient transportation systems, and an ecosystem supportive of innovation and entrepreneurship, providing an ideal environment for business development. Suzhou Industrial Park is one of the most competitive and attractive industrial parks in China, drawing numerous companies and talents for investment and entrepreneurship.

In the most challenging year of 2022, Suzhou Industrial Park witnessed the emergence of six IPOs on its small 0.77 square-kilometer land. In the past year, the science and technology park made significant progress, reaching a historic high in the number of companies going public. Six new companies were listed throughout the year, bringing the total to 16, including companies such as Shengke Communication, Haochen Software, and Guangge Technology, among others. These companies not only account for 73% of the total listed companies in Suzhou Industrial Park but also represent over 20% of Suzhou's annual newly listed companies.

These listed companies have excelled in technology and industrial fields, with 12 of them focusing on "hard-tech" sectors such as semiconductor research and development, optoelectronic communications, and biomedicine. The six newly listed companies in 2022 are also from high-tech fields like semiconductors and virtual digitization. Three companies that passed the Science and Technology Innovation Board (STAR Market) review are prominently characterized by "hard-tech" features in network communication chips, industrial software, and optical fiber sensing networks.

This emphasis on "hard-tech" development not only reflects the nation's emphasis on technological self-reliance and breaking monopolies but also aligns with Suzhou Industrial Park's strategic goal of becoming a world-class high-tech industrial park. From the perspective of the park's development, SIP has clearly defined the strategic direction of developing "hard-tech" to support the growth of emerging industries.
