As the core city of the California Bay Area, San Francisco has grown as one engine driving the US’s technological innovation. Silicon Valley, the industry core of San Francisco and also a global innovation center, has witnessed its venture capital firms, alliances between universities and industries and innovative companies clusters combining and intermingling to form a special innovative ecosystem.
China’s Guangdong province is similarly driving toward developing the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Corridor, aiming to make itself the nation’s major innovation engine and gateway for the province to connect to global innovation trends. Last year the province carried out policies of encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship, development of SMEs and venture investment, aiming to optimize the province’s business environment.
This March, journalists from Nanfang Daily, one Guangdong’s leading media publications, were sent to the US, UK, Germany, Singapore and other international financial hubs and had conversations with experts there, attempting to explore experiences that the province can learn from.
