Implementation of Promoting the Development of Headquarters Economy in Foshan Sanlongwan Innovation Cluster was released recently, raising great concern.
Sanlongwan is the important platform and strategic focused point of Foshan’s integration into the Greater Bay Area construction while headquarters economy is the breakthrough for Sanlongwan to accelerate industrial upgrading and improve urban functions.
Compared with Guangzhou and Shenzhen, Sanlongwan provides a full-cycle support of 100 million yuan, attracting headquarters enterprises with regional competitiveness. Based on a global perspective, Sanlongwan focuses on the ecosystem of headquarters economy and equips with first-class industrial cities, supporting enterprises to go global with headquarters economy model.
Stronger support than Guangzhou and Shenzhen
Compared with Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other same-level cities in the Greater Bay Area, Sanlongwan has comparative strengths in supportive policies with more diverse conditions, higher proportion or upper limit of incentives, and focuses on full life-cycle of headquarters enterprises development, aiming to support the leapfrog development of regional industry as much as possible and lead headquarters economy to a higher-level development.
High degree of industrial agglomeration driving obviously by leading enterprises
Sanlongwan has obvious strengths in developing headquarters economy. It covers five towns of three districts, including Chancheng, Nanhai and Shunde, with their headquarters economy dominated by industrial enterprises and obviously oriented by leading companies, making entrepreneurs more willing to keep their headquarters in local areas.
According to Ma Xiangming, the chief engineer of Guangdong Urban & Rural Planning and Design Institute, since local enterprises have become headquarters nowadays and make better allocation of resources in the global market, they need comprehensive supports from local areas, including modern service industry, convenient transportation, construction of headquarters bases, scientific research centers, high-quality urban facilities and so on.
“Introducing in” and “going global” to seek better development
On the one hand, Sanlongwan will maximize its industrial strengths to introduce headquarters enterprises with regional competitiveness through the model of “headquarters economy + high-end manufacturing bases”.
On the other, Sanlongwan encourages enterprises to go global through headquarters economy model and supports local leading enterprises to set up transnational headquarters in Sanlongwan through investment, mergers and acquisitions and other ways, seeking better development.
Sanlongwan strives to create a technological and innovative industrial system and continuously improve the urban functional quality at the same time by promoting transportation facilities, ecological landscape and public service facilities. In addition, Sanlongwan will hold several brand activities such as Tanzhou Waterway Cruise Project and Sino-Europe Culture Week, increasing the urban influence in Sanlongwan.
