I. Project Background
Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Zone (hereinafter referred to as the “Cooperation Zone”), as a comprehensive platform for international science and technology innovation cooperation in the Greater Bay Area of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, is a new district for national offshore innovation, a new engine for innovation and development in the Greater Bay Area, a new fulcrum for further cross-border cooperation between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, and a new platform for international innovation and cooperation. Located at the border between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the Cooperation Zone is the best connection for Shenzhen-Hong Kong cooperation bidirectional flow of innovation resources at home and abroad as an efficient integration of the resources. The Cooperation Zone consists of Shenzhen park and Hong Kong park. Covering an area of about 3k㎡, Shenzhen Park is made of "One Center"and "Two Wings". "One Center" refers to the comprehensive service hub to be built at the Huanggang Port area. "West Wing" is Futian Bonded Zone, which is a zone under special customs supervision and closed fence control.

Shenzhen park follows the national science and technology development strategy with a focus on basic scientific research and applied basic scientific research, and emphasizes six major industries including medical science and technology, big data and artificial intelligence, robotics, new materials technology, microelectronics and fintech. The park strives to become an important area of a comprehensive national science center. It is planned to introduce a number of national scientific research institutions and build an international research and development platform with high standards.

Shenzhen park boasts excellent landscapes. With Shenzhen River and Mai Po Nature Reserve to the south and Futian Mangrove Nature Reserve to the west, it shoulders important responsibilities of protecting and restoring wetland ecology, improving ecological conservation capacity and protecting bird flight paths.

Plot B105-0042 and Plot B105-0119, as key construction projects in the west wing, are of great significance and assume a leading role. Therefore, the plots shall be developed with “global vision, international standards and a high position” so as to live up to its exemplary role in the overall construction of the Cooperation Zone.
