China and South Korea Set to Launch Three Joint Venture Industrial Parks
Following formal assent from the State Council, three new industrial parks are to be jointly-established with the Republic of Korea (ROK) – the China-ROK (Yancheng) Industrial Park in Jiangsu, the China-ROK (Yantai) Industrial Park in Shandong, and the China-ROK (Huizhou) Industrial Park in Guangdong. The three parks will be built within existing economic and technological development zones or new and high-tech development zones in line with implementation plans currently being drawn up by the local provincial governments.
It is hoped that these joint venture industrial parks will boost overall co-operation with the ROK, particularly with regard to greater collaboration between local economies and the high-end industrial sector. The developments are also in line with the China-ROK Free Trade Agreement and are expected to play a role in ensuring that China and the ROK work together closely to deliver the objectives of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
