According to the district, the number of market entities registered in the Nansha FTZ increased 2.7 times to a total of 92 thousand over the past three years.
Feng Jianlin, CEO of Unicorn Field, an incubator co-founded by Heung Kong Group and Microsoft China in Nansha, said 40 start-ups had been registered in the incubator since November last year. “It usually takes twice the time to reach such a number,” said Feng, “and because of the convenience, start-ups can focus more on their own development.”

China’s first monitor system on government services was launched at Nansha’s service hall at the same day. Based on the real-time data offered by different departments, people can obtain useful information, such as the progress status of each application and where to find the shortest queue.
A member of staff from the service hall said she saw an increasing number of overseas applicants as well. “These applicants usually have their own interpreters. But if they don’t, we can offer English language services at the assistance area.”
