Meanwhile, it has improved its attraction of industrial land to premium resources by giving subsidy and land.
Based on its sound relation with Germany companies, Sanlongwan has attracted a group of research - oriented industrial service agencies to land here and to build up a close cooperative relationship with local manufacturing.
In the next step, Sanlongwan aims to invite more high-quality projects from Europe to settle here by giving policy support and offering more cooperation opportunities.
The policies to support the cooperation with Germany enterprises will be released this year, which are expected to promote the introduction of advanced technical services from Germany.
