Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration – Innovating Our Future

Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration – Innovating Our Future is a one-day high-level summit co-organized by Social Innovation Park (SIP) and Jiangsu Industrial Technology Research Institute (JITRI).

Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration 1.0 was kicked started back in 1994 by the then Prime Ministers HE Mr Deng Xiaoping and HE Mr Lee Kuan Yew, with the birth of the Suzhou Industrial Park. Over the last 24 years, Singapore-Jiangsu G2G, B2B and P2P relations expanded and deepened into various industry sectors and Jiangsu cities. Meanwhile, the Suzhou Industrial Park also developed into a modern city with a high-tech industrial park at its core, a prosperous population, and one of the most liveable places in China. It entered a new stage of development in September 2015 when the State Council of the People’s Republic of China approved the Suzhou Industrial Park’s proposal to become the first experimental zone for economic liberalisation and innovation.

This heralded a new era of globalization and innovation, and we are prompted to think about what Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration 2.0 could look like, beyond the Suzhou Industrial Park joint venture. The Belt and Road Initiative will further drive trade and economic cooperation, bringing potential for more partnerships, particularly in technology and innovation. More pertinently, how do we mindfully shape the desired future of our countries, in a collaborative manner that brings better standards of living and better lives for our citizens ?

This event brings together leaders from business, government and academia in Singapore and Jiangsu, especially those involved in the deep tech, to discuss the future of collaboration for economic transformation and inclusive growth. How can we reap the business potential and benefits of deep tech, but also ensure sustainable and inclusive development?
