An investment promotion meeting for Wujiang’s innovation-driven development was held in Shenzhen on Sept. 12. It aimed to introduce Wujiang’s excellent investment environment and development potential and seek win-win results through greater cooperation with Shenzhen.
At the meeting which was attended by more than 150 businessmen, 20 projects were signed, with a total investment of about 13.495 billion yuan. Among them, there are 5 foreign-funded projects with a total investment of 335 million US dollars and 15 domestic-funded projects with a total investment of 11.145 billion yuan.

On behalf of the district Party committee and the district government, he extended a warm welcome to the guests attending this event and expressed heartfelt gratitude to them for their long-term support and help to the district’s development.
Wujiang is located at the junction of Jiangsu Province, Zhejiang Province and Shanghai Municipality in the center of the YRD region. It has a complete industrial chain and supply chain and is a highland of capital, technology and talents. The district is home to 2 Fortune Global 500 companies and 19 domestic and foreign listed companies and has set up two pilot free trade zones. Since last November when it was included as part of the demonstration zone for ecological green development in the Yangtze River Delta, Wujiang has been working hard to promote the integration of Suzhou and Shanghai in accordance with the strategic plan of developing the YRD region into “a strong growth pole of the national economy, a model for promoting high-quality development across the country, the first among national development zones to realize basic modernization, a demonstration area for regional integrated development and a new highland for reform and opening up in the new area”. The district has made coordinated efforts with its peers to strengthen reforms, scientific innovation, eco-environmental protection and public services, so as to resolutely implement the instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping who urged the Yangtze River Delta region “to take the lead in forming a new development pattern, rise to assume the role of the trail-blazer of China’s technological and industrial innovations, and develop into a new high ground of reform and opening up”.
Noting that Wujiang is faced with new opportunities brought by the national strategy, Li Ming extended a sincere invitation to all the participants to invest in Wujiang. Investors and entrepreneurs in Shenzhen, a city at the forefront of China’s reform and opening up, are good at grasping opportunities and dare to meet challenges, Li said, expressing hope that more entrepreneurs will come to invest in Wujiang. The district Party committee and the district government will go all out to create the best business environment and provide the enterprises with the needed services.
