HKUST Explores New Collaboration Opportunities with Shenzhen Futian

After several rounds of negotiations, SRI and the Shenzhen Futian Municipal Government (Futian) have reached consensus for collaboration in principle. Futian will provide space (3 floors with a total area over 6,000 m2) in the Chang-Fu Commercial Building (CFC building) of Futian Bonded Zone to accommodate R&D/entrepreneurship/training activities of HKUST. Futian will also provide financial and policy support including coverage of furnishing, move-in expenses and operation expenses for the first five years, waiver of rental for the first five years and discount of rental for the next five years, etc. The collaboration agreement is going to be signed.



About “the Lok Ma Chau Loop”

The Shenzhen-Hong Kong Special Collaborative Demo Zone (a. k. a. “the Lok Ma Chau Loop”, “the Loop”) is a newly defined area due to the re-routing of the SZ River. The Loop is surrounding the current Huanggang and Futian check points between HK and SZ, and it consists of 4 parts: Zone A (0.87 km2) and Zone B (1.82 km2) are in HK; Zone C (1.67 km2) and Futian Bonded Zone (1.35 km2) are in SZ. The legal system in the Loop will comply with the Laws of HK. All major societal systems (e.g., tax, internet, IPs etc.) will follow the practices of HK. The Loop is the next “big thing” in SZ, aimed at building a SZ-HK S&T park for high-tech international enterprises and tertiary institutions. The location coincides with the GZ-SZ-HK high speed rail and connects the HKUST CWB campus and GZ campus very well.
