Building a nationwide influential science and technology (S/T) innovation center is a priority during the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle. How to improve the Chengdu-Chongqing region’s capability of collaborative innovation and development? Recently, Chongqing proposed that concerted efforts should fix on upgrading S/T innovation platforms, pooling related resource elements, powering the tackling of core technologies and achievement transfer, and deepening international S/T communication and cooperation. With such efforts, Chengdu and Chongqing can realize better innovation resource co-construction and sharing, foster new engines and fuel new vitality. Chongqing Liangjiang New Area and Chongqing Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone are acting to catalyze Sichuan-Chongqing cooperative innovation.
Liangjiang New Area is the first national new area for development and opening-up in inland China and the leader of economic growth in Chongqing. It vigorously implements the action plan on innovation-driven development strategy led by big data intelligence, accelerates the construction of the national innovation demonstration zone and the national pilot zone for digital economy innovation, and develops the three innovation platforms, which are Lijia Intelligent Park, Liangjiang New Area’s Digital Economy Industrial Park, and Liangjiang Collaborative Innovation Zone. As a result, Liangjiang New Area can create sound innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems. Li Jie, Director of Liangjiang New Area Science and Technology Innovation Bureau, said Liangjiang New Area had rich innovation resources and became increasingly active in this sphere.
Chengdu and Chongqing will also enhance industrial coordinated development and innovation resource sharing. They plan to introduce regional headquarters of international companies, share industrial and supply chains, and build world-class industrial clusters valuing trillions of yuan. Together, the two cities are going to become the engines for Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle development.
With the total investment of 20 billion yuan, an AI City is rising in Chongqing Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone. The Video Connection Commencement Ceremony for Chongqing 2020 First Batch of New Infrastructure Projects was held recently, during which Everbright AI Industrial Base, a new infrastructure project located in the Chongqing Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone, attracted wide attention for the highest investment and its hi-tech elements.
Differing from traditional infrastructure, this project will build a real AI City, establishing a benchmark for the smart industry and becoming a new infrastructure demonstrator for Chongqing to grow into a city of innovation.
Ai Yu, founder and CEO of Terminus Technologies, said: “Construction of the Everbright AI Industrial Base will introduce global cutting-edge technologies and woo top-notch talent to Chongqing for innovation development.”
Chongqing Science City is the key to draw this AIoT (AI + IoT) leading company to settle here. Big data center, AI and other focuses of Chongqing Science City echo the goals of the Everbright AI Industrial Base Project.
This year, the construction of the Chongqing Science City will speed up. Chongqing and Sichuan will work together to build a nationwide influential China (West) Science and Technology Innovation Center. Chongqing Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone will take Chongqing Science City and Chengdu Science City as two cores while cooperating with Mianyang Science and Technology City and other national hi-tech industrial development zones. Based on the model of “One City and Multiple Industrial Parks,” the two will collaboratively build a science city and an innovative reform and opening-up highland for high-quality development in West China.
