The opening ceremony of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area·Intelligent Future——Guangdong Intelligent Manufacturing Innovation Demonstration Park and Sino-German Intelligent Manufacturing International Cooperation Demonstration Zone (hereinafter referred to as “park” ) and Midea-KUKA Intelligent Manufacturing Base was held in the core area.

  

It is reported that, as the first project after the establishment of Midea-KUKA joint venture, Midea-KUKA Intelligent Manufacturing Base will plan to invest 10 billion yuan. In the area of about 80 hectares, it will introduce 25 to 40 "industrial chain" enterprises of KUKA to gather in Shunde.

 

The park will become the robot industry agglomeration area

 

It is reported that the Guangdong Intelligent Manufacturing Innovation Demonstration Park and Sino-German Intelligent Manufacturing International Cooperation Demonstration Zone will cover a total area of 666.67 hectares, and it will be planned into five major functional areas including Intelligent Manufacturing Core Start-up Park, Intelligent Manufacturing extension Zone, Convention and Exhibition Core Area, International Community and Talents Small Town.

   

It is reported that the park will become robot industry agglomeration zone driven by world's top robotics project and the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) project. In the future, the park will become an "International Robot Intelligent City", International Robot Industry Biosphere, Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Exhibition Center and Foshan Sino-Europe Urbanization Cooperation Demonstration Site.

  

Construct the whole industry chain science and technology park in the future
