Since its establishment in Guiyang last September, Zhongguancun Science Park has successfully linked Guizhou and Beijing in the big data industry with 106 new contracts worth 17.4 billion yuan ($2.86 billion).
The achievements could not be possible without Guizhou's advantages in ecological environment and geographic location.
"The successful hosting of the Eco Forum Global Annual Conference Guiyang, the establishment of the Guiyang Comprehensive Bonded Area and the opening of the Guiyang-Anshun New Area have created a solid foundation for hi-tech industry development in Guizhou," Qin added.
Qin welcomes government officials from relevant departments and commissions, leaders from well-known domestic and international enterprises, major financial institutions, well-known universities, academicians and representatives to join the upcoming conference on March 1.
Contract value is estimated to reach 80 billion yuan during the promotion conference. Cooperation between universities and research institutes in Beijing and Guizhou will be a highlight of the conference.
