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).
Jiangsu province is the biggest economy in East China, with GDP reaching S$1.76 trillion (RMB8.59 trillion) at 8.4% growth in 2017, almost the size of the Australian GDP. Jiangsu is the top provincial investment destination for Singapore companies in China, with Singapore’s cumulative investments into Jiangsu reaching over S$36.8 billion (US$27.1 billion) as of end-September 2017. Singapore-Jiangsu trade currently accounts for about 10% of Singapore-China trade, rising 13.2% year-on-year to reach S$11 billion (US$8.1 billion) in the first three quarters of 2017.
Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration was kick-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.
As we enter a new stage of development and growth that will be accelerated by the Belt and Road Initiative, and with Singapore also entering the fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), more collaborative bridges and platforms – traditional and new – need to be built, particularly in the areas of technology and innovation, so we could progress together. We are prompted to think about what the second phase of Singapore-Jiangsu Collaboration could look like, beyond the Suzhou Industrial Park joint venture. 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?
