First of all, Foshan is tasked to break through bottlenecks that have hindered the development of local manufacturing, like core technologies, key materials, major spare parts and equipment. To this end, Foshan will promote the communication and cooperation between producers, colleges, institutes and investors.


Foshan will take a further step to meet the enterprises' needs on their way to innovation development after collection and analysis by creating online requirement list. Besides, more talent trainings will be provided.


In addition to introducing A-list talent groups, holding national-level exhibitions and academic conferences themed on manufacturing and globally-leading technology is of significance.


Foshan also plans to build China Association for Science and Technology Haizhi Base as a way to attract innovative resources from Hongkong, Macao and the outside world.


To attract more projects to land in Foshan, the local government will give full support to Foshan China Academy of Invention Achievement Transformation, Bright Dream Robotics, Foshan Xianhu Laboratory, Sino-German Industrial Services zone (Sanlongwan), Foshan Leaguer Science Park and other institutes/companies.


Up next, to enhance the talent and technological competitiveness, priority will be given to innovation platforms like Foshan High-tech Zone, Sanlongwan Sci-tech City and Foshan Xianhu Laboratory.
