The authorities must work with business in order to implement the cluster approach. Everything now is in place for this, in spite of budget constraints.
Industrial parks and clusters are very attractive platforms and Chinese companies are ready to take part. However, the infrastructure of these parks requires comprehensive support from the government.
Over the next ten years, the housing market will completely change. Within the scope of the cluster approach, this will be the answer to demands for a new quality of life – “Live, work, and develop.”
If you can find the infrastructure, incentives and information, this will help to attract investments and create an industrial environment for innovations.
