Roadshow highlights biotech companies in Greater Bay Area
Update: 2018-07-09     Source: newsgd.com

The first roadshow of the 2018 Delta Creativity & Innovation Celebration (DCIC) was held in Guangzhou on July 5th, focusing on the biotech & medicine industry. The event was attended by officials from the government departments and foreign consulates in Guangzhou as well as representatives of both local and multinational companies.

Eight leading enterprises based in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area gave presentations on their latest projects, aiming to look for potential partners and picture the Bay Area’s innovative image on the global stage.

Meanwhile, a panel discussion was organized to share ideas on the bio-tech development in the Bay Area. Most of the attended enterprises are optimistic about Guangzhou’s development, especially its business environment and opportunities.

Some of them said they had located their business in Guangzhous’s Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City, which is one of the major industrial clusters in the government’s Guangzhou-Shenzhen Science and Techology Innovation Corridor Project.

Simon Xie, Deputy CEO of Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City Investment and Development Co., Ltd, said they had introduced leading biotech enterprises, such as, Beigene and GE, and a batch of bio-medicine companies, for example, Lewwin Pharmaceutical which is a firm specializing in cell research.

Since the Knowledge City established in 2010, roughly 1000 enterprises have registered in the area with the registered capital exceeding 106 billion yuan. These enterprises are mainly in five business sectors including information technology, AI, bio-medicine, new energies and new materials.

NG Kok Siong, Executive Vice President of Sustainable Urban Development of Ascendas-Singbridge, said Guangzhou is at the center of the Greater Bay Area with a series of advantageous policies. Meanwhile, the city’s house price is relatively low which is very attractive to start-ups and skilled professionals.

“We are also building an international platform in the Knowledge City so that we can introduce Singapore companies to Guangzhou while providing local enterprises with resources to go global,” said NG Kok Siong.

DCIC is organized by Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City, a joint project between the Guangdong Government and Singapore, and it is produced by San Jiao Ling, a PR and marketing agency based in the Greater Bay Area.

In line with the recent trend to develop the IAB industries, the 2018 DCIC will organize three roadshows with the themes of biotech & medicine, information technology and artificial intelligence in Guangzhou and Shenzhen, two major cities in the Greater Bay Area.
