Country Garden Sci-Tech Town stands out from its competitors with multiple 
advantages, such as benefiting from its geographical location in the 
world-class technical innovation bay area, sitting in the beautiful environment 
of Guangdong's largest inland freshwater wetland, sharing the ecosystem of 
domestic and international leading enterprises, learning from international 
demonstrative cities, etc. The billboard screen tenanted by Xinhua Screen Media

the innovative model of China's smart cities. At the same time, Country Garden 
Sci-Tech Town is also displayed on large-sized outdoor screens in Beijing and 
Shanghai's bustling commercial streets. 

Times Square is located in the heart of Manhattan, New York City, as a 
world-class financial center and tourist attraction, at an annual passenger 
traffic of nearly 100 million passengers, as well as attracting 500,000 
tourists and local residents from all over the world every day. 

In August 2016, Country Garden, one of the World Top 500 companies, officially 
announced its development strategy of "City-Industry Integration", aiming to 
create an industry-centric, project-based, livable and enterprise-adaptable 
city, which integrates production facilities, life environment, and ecological 
system as a whole, by promoting mutual development through interaction between 
city and industry. 

As the first demonstrative project for Country Garden's strategic planning, 
Country Garden Sci-Tech Town is only a characteristic town named with 
"Sci-Tech" by the Guangdong Provincial Development and Reform Commission, and 
has been selected into the first batch of characteristic towns in Guangdong 
Province. The town is committed to achieving a full range of smart city goals, 
creating 5S smart interconnected towns that interconnect industries, smart 
facilities, scenes, ecosystems, and traffic transportation, establishing the 
links of things, interaction between things and human, as well as 
interconnection of all things, thereby providing a package of quality services 
for the Internet of Things (IoT) industry with the IoT platform and Big Data 
platform, payment platform and Internet platform, and providing socialized 
management and services for cities. 

At present, Country Garden Sci-Tech Town works with Shenzhen Association of 
Internet of Things, as well as other scientific research institutions and 
industry associations in soliciting users and lessees. The initial area has 
been leased out fully and it is expected that, at the time of opening in 
September 2018, Country Garden Sci-Tech Town will gather a number of Internet 
of Things technology companies and innovative carriers, such as YITOA, FARAD 
ELECTRIC (R&D Center and Academician Workstation), Keruyun (Hardware R&D and 
Manufacturing Base), Harbin Institute of Technology, MOST Mass Entrepreneurship 
Zone, the Intellectual Property Service Center of Chinese Academy of Sciences, 
etc.; they will develop together with Country Garden to create the IoT

University, and the Comprehensive Research Center under Chinese Academy of 
Sciences, covering eight major industrial resources: electronic information, 
intelligent manufacturing, new energy, new transportation, and innovative 
services, etc., thereby promoting development of complete industrial cluster 
and innovation alliance in industry-city integration projects. 

"Environment is regarded as one of the critical factors in the success of 
Silicon Valley. In the past, I always believed that environment was an 
uncontrollable factor, but after making deep understanding of Country Garden, I 
changed my views and the environment could be created," "Kai-Fu Lee said, the 
founder of The Sinovation Ventures. The Sinovation Ventures is capable of 
providing technical and talent resources, while Country Garden will develop a 
high-quality environment that is conducive to work and life.
