Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City Promotes Financial Convergence Zone to Bridge Manufacturing and Finance

It is an important opportunity and vital topic for Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City to activate the new vitality of advanced manufacturing industry with financial innovation and create a new model for the integrated development of modern financial industry and advanced manufacturing industry.



On the evening of November 16, the promotion activity of Foshan Advanced Manufacturing Financial Cluster, sponsored by the Management Committee of Foshan Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City and the People's Government of Shunde District was held in Foshan New City, attracting a large number of Chinese and foreign enterprises with financing needs, as well as investment and financing institutions such as banking institutions and fund companies to actively participate.



Pan Dongsheng, director of the Management Committee of Foshan Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City, said that focusing on the industrial development and strengthening financial empowerment, Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City will build the bridge of cooperation between the manufacturing and financial industries, continue to create a first-class business environment, and build Sanlongwan into a veritable "R&D city", "Industrial city", "Talent-friendly city" and "International city".

Strengthen financial empowerment to help the high-quality development of Foshan's manufacturing industry

"In the process of settling the Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City, I felt the sincerity of Foshan's warm welcome, and they did their best to provide us with the necessary assistance, and I felt very relieved. " At the promotion scene, Xiaohui Liu, senior partner of Beijing Dacheng Law Offices and Head of Office Preparation of Dacheng (Foshan) Office, took the stage to express his excitement.



As one of the earliest, largest and most influential partnership law firms in China, after more than 30 years of development, Dacheng has become a large-scale comprehensive law firm with 48 offices in China, covering the scope of services in China.

"We will deeply cultivate the Foshan market and provide professional legal services according to the economic characteristics of Foshan." Xiaohui Liu said that Dacheng is in the lead in key legal service areas such as high-end manufacturing, financial and securities legal services, and foreign-related legal services, and he was looking forward to the future development of the law firm in Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City.

Zhu Xixiong, vice director of the Management Committee of Foshan Sanlongwan Science and Technology City, said that the promotion of the financial agglomeration area is to build a bridge between Foshan's manufacturing industry and the financial industry through the government's platform, which helps enterprises use the event platform to fully communicate and promote more cooperation in "advanced manufacturing + finance".

In recent years, more and more high-quality projects have settled in Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City. As the core area of both the Foshan's advanced manufacturing financial agglomeration and the Sanlongwan Science and Technology City, Foshan New City has an average annual growth rate of more than 40% in the past three years. Especially since the official launch of the Foshan Advanced Manufacturing Financial Cluster in June this year, dozens of financial institutions such as Guosen Futures, Guosheng Financial Holding Group, Century Securities, and Dah Sing Bank seized the chance to enter the beach and firmly cast their "yes votes".

It reflects that of Foshan's strong real economic foundation, which provides a broad space and fertile soil for the development of the financial industry.

According to the data, Foshan's GDP was nearly 1.27 trillion yuan, the total industrial output value above the designated size reached 2.8 trillion yuan, and there were 8 industrial clusters exceeding 100 billion yuan in 2022. The strong industrial foundation and the need for the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry have derived a large number of financial needs. Based on this, Foshan proposes to make every effort to build an advanced manufacturing financial agglomeration area and promote high-quality development with "advanced manufacturing + finance".

Pan Dongsheng stated that Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City will strengthen financial empowerment around industrial development, further cultivate and introduce a number of high-quality financial institutions, financial services and financial resources. And it will make every effort to promote Foshan New City to become a new engine for the agglomeration of high-energy financial elements, a pioneer area for national manufacturing finance, a source of "Foshan price" for futures and spot linkage, an incubator for the "Foshan Army" in the capital market, and a large platform for international financial service cooperation.

Create a first-class business environment to attract high-quality enterprises and talents

Jochen Guenther Schleiss, President of Stiegelmeyer China, has the dream of building the first factory in the Chinese market, has inspected many places in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and finally chose to settle in Foshan Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City.



"There are abundant industrial supporting resources, and life is also very convenient." Jochen Guenther Schleiss was pleasantly surprised to find that the signs of Sanlongwan Science and Technology City were printed in German. The first good impression, superior location, timely response and professional services, has opened a new chapter in the cooperation between Delikang and Sanlongwan.

Sanlongwan Chancheng Area pays attention to platform construction, highlights the new advantages of developing the headquarters economy, and builds a Sanlongwan headquarters agglomeration area with high-standard planning and starting point.

The Sanlongwan Nanhai Area focuses on the development of information technology, headquarters economy, scientific research services and other industries. It focuses on promoting the key construction of three characteristic theme parks, including Foshan Information Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Park, Nanhai District Integrated Circuit Design Park, and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area E-sports Cultural and Creative Industry Center.



The Shunde area of Sanlongwan, where the financial agglomeration area is located, has formed industrial clusters such as robots, smart home appliances, machinery and equipment manufacturing, and biomedicine, showing an agglomeration trend of high-quality development of advanced manufacturing industry. Especially since the beginning of this year, with the opening of the innovation incubation base of Sanlongwan Sino-German Industrial Park and Sanlongwan Sino-German Biomedical Industrial Park, it has provided a reliable carrier for more high-quality enterprises to settle down.

This financial agglomeration area promotion activity is through the government to build a bridge between Foshan's manufacturing and the financial industry. Pan Dongsheng said that under the guidance of the theme of developing manufacturing finance, Sanlongwan Sci-Tech City will play as an "intermediary" role to create a first-class business environment, accelerate project construction and promote the development of key areas. And it provides a first-class talent service guarantee system, attract more high-quality enterprises and talents to Sanlongwan for investment and development, and create a veritable "R&D city", "industrial city", "talent-friendly city" and "international city".

New Manufacturing High-tech Headquarters to Settle in Chancheng

On November 21, the Ultron Intelligent Equipment (Foshan) Company, based in Guangzhou, successfully acquired 18 mu of industrial land within the Hefeng Xingtou plot of Foshan Nanzhuang high-end precision Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park (hereinafter referred to as "precision Intelligent Manufacturing Park"). With an investment exceeding 500 million yuan, they will establish their intelligent technology headquarters and production and research and development base. This marks the fourth major project to be established in the park this year, with an estimated tax revenue per mu surpassing one million yuan.



Since the second half of this year, Nanzhuang has attracted a number of national high-tech enterprises from Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Dongguan, gradually establishing itself as a prime investment and development destination for specialized new enterprises in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. It has also emerged as the primary battleground for urban industrial development in Chancheng.

Established in September 2017, Guangzhou Ultron Intelligent Technology Company (hereinafter referred to as "Ultron Intelligent") is a national high-tech enterprise. It primarily specializes in the production of automotive parts and non-standard mechanical equipment design and manufacturing for automotive enterprise automation. Ultron Intelligent has established long-term partnerships with renowned enterprises such as Toyota, Hitachi, Apex, Bridgestone.

Guangzhou Deao Mold Company (hereinafter referred to as "Deao Mold") is also a national high-tech enterprise and a specialized new company in Guangdong Province. It offers imported precision parts, accessories, molds, equipment manufacturing, and maintenance services for automotive enterprises and European/American automation manufacturers while providing manufacturing support for production equipment.

The current location of Ultron Intelligence is in Panyu, Guangzhou. In order to further expand its operations, the company plans to relocate Ultron Intelligence, Deao Mold headquarters, and the production research and development base to Nanzhuang.

According to the plan, once Ultron Intelligent settles in Nanzhuang, it will focus on the research and development of intelligent manufacturing automation equipment for new energy vehicles, automation equipment for automobile enterprises, as well as the research and development design of auto parts, rubber products, hardware components, tooling molds, and other molds. The aim is to establish an intelligent production base with a minimum building capacity area of 36,000 square meters. This production base will integrate science and technology management, scientific research and development activities, process improvement initiatives, production and manufacturing processes along with personnel training programs. It is expected that this endeavor will achieve an annual output value of 200 million yuan.

Since this year, Chancheng has steadfastly pursued manufacturing ownership and made a high-profile return to the forefront of the manufacturing sector. As a key platform for the advanced planning of Foshan Municipal Committee's "Double Ten Park" initiative, as well as one of the leading innovation-driven characteristic manufacturing parks, Nanzhuang Precision Intelligent Park serves as the primary battleground for urban industrial development in Chancheng, attracting a multitude of high-quality projects.

In July, the comprehensive construction of Precision Wisdom Park commenced, while simultaneously CCCC Urban Construction's Yili Science and Technology Cloud Corridor project settled in Hefeng Xingtou's thousand-acre industrial land with a total investment of 3 billion yuan. The project has completed the pile foundation construction phase and is now entering the main construction stage.

In September, Desheng Intelligent, a specialized new small and medium-sized enterprise in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, purchased 20 mu of land and invested in the Nanzhuang project to construct their corporate headquarters and production base. Their primary focus is on motor R&D, control system research and development, as well as servo controller manufacturing.



In October, Kossi Intelligence, a new national specialized "little giant" enterprise based in Guangzhou, acquired 25 mu of land in Nanzhuang with the intention to establish a state-of-the-art manufacturing headquarters base. In November, Ultron Intelligence also arrived in Nanzhuang to construct their corporate headquarters and R&D base.

Looking at these established projects, the majority of them are specialized new enterprises and exemplify "small and sophisticated" urban industries. They typically occupy a small land area and aim not only to construct a production base but also to relocate their corporate headquarters to Nanzhuang for establishing an intelligent and modern manufacturing system. This implies that these enterprises must retain the core and most valuable components within the local region, which is anticipated to yield greater benefits.

The successful implementation of numerous high-quality projects shows Chancheng's unwavering commitment to the manufacturing industry and its vigorous efforts in urban industrial development. This will further expedite the establishment of new and high-quality productivity within the precision intelligent manufacturing park, injecting a continuous stream of fresh impetus into Chancheng's pursuit of high-quality development.
