Backed by Favorable Policies and an Engine for Guangdong's Economic Transformation

In September 2008, Guangdong and Singapore jointly proposed the concept of SSGKC as an iconic project of China-Singapore collaboration. The Knowledge City Administrative Committee was granted municipal-level authorities, which contains legal provisions in many areas.

Since the founding of the SSGKC project, it has been viewed as a model for Guangdong's economic transformation. Favorable policies have been granted to ensure the smooth implementation and development in the areas of talent development, industry promotion, technology, and finance.
