A memorandum on the construction of the Russian-Chinese high-tech parks "Silk Road" has been signed

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), the Russian-Chinese Investment Fund (RCIF), the Skolkovo Foundation, as well as the People's Government of Shaanxi Province (People's Republic of China) signed a memorandum on the joint development and construction of the Silk Road Russian-Chinese high-tech parks , the press service of the RDIF reported. The agreement was signed in the presence of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev and the Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Keqiang.

According to the agreements reached, the RCIF and the Administrative Committee of the new city of Xixian Fengdong of Shaanxi Province will create a joint venture for the construction of high-tech parks "Silk Road" in Russia and China. The corresponding high-tech park in China will be located in the new city of Xixian Fengdong of Shaanxi Province ("New Sisyan Zone") and will include 4 square kilometers of land in the first stage. The Russian High Technology Park will be located in the Skolkovo Innovation Center in Moscow and will include at the first stage up to 200 thousand square meters of premises for development. The activities of the Russian high-tech park will have a scientific and research character and will include production opportunities in the event of opening sites in the regional free economic zones.

It is assumed that in the medium and long term, the Chinese high-tech park will create divisions in cities and regions such as Beijing, Shanghai, Heilongjiang and Guangdong, and the Russian park in Kaliningrad, Vladivostok and the Republic of Tatarstan. The parties also plan to open branches in the BRICS countries in the future.

In its turn, RFPI, being the presiding organization of the Russian part of the Consultative Committee of the Intergovernmental Russian-Chinese Commission for Investment Cooperation, will support the inclusion of the project of high-tech parks in the mechanism of regular interaction of the commission. RFPI also plans to promote the work of the Russian high-tech park to attract high-tech enterprises from China and Russia and to promote the concept of parks among the world's leading companies.

Kirill Dmitriev, the general director of the RDIF and the general co-director of RCIF, noted:

"Technological parks in many countries have already proved their worth, stimulating scientific developments, their commercialization and economic growth. The uniqueness of this project is that it will allow using the best practices of both countries, as well as create a network of sites in different regions. This makes it possible to increase the effectiveness of interaction between the leading companies of Russia and China, and to expand the project at the expense of other BRICS countries. "

Hu Bing, the general co-director of RCFR, stated:

"We are pleased to work with RFPI on the creation of scientific parks in China and Russia, which will stimulate scientific and technological progress in both countries. The exchange of ideas and experience within this partnership will promote the development of entrepreneurship and increase competitiveness. This, in turn, will support economic development and help Russia and China remain the advanced countries in the field of scientific development. "

Viktor Vekselberg, President of the Skolkovo Foundation, said:

"The signing of the agreement on the establishment of the Russian-Chinese High-Tech Park in Skolkovo Innovation Center is certainly a milestone in the history of our project. Moreover, today's event is a clear indication that Russia and China are entering an era of full-scale cooperation in the field of innovation. I am sure that the park will become a home for research and development centers of leading high-tech corporations in China and a platform for close interaction between Russian and Chinese scientists and entrepreneurs. "

Jiang Zelin, deputy governor of Shaanxi Province of the People's Republic of China, said:

"The proposal of China's President Xi Jinping to build an economic belt" Silk Road "extends strategic opportunities for Shaanxi Province - it was here that the ancient Silk Road began. The creation of Russian-Chinese high-tech parks is very beneficial for Shaanxi - it turns the province into the starting point of the new economic belt "Silk Road", and also stimulates a bilateral exchange of investments and resources between Russia and China. Shaanxi Province supports the new city of Xixian Fengdong, RFPI, RCIF and the Skolkovo Foundation in the joint development of the park, which will become for us the flagship project with the most comfortable conditions for doing business and developing high technologies.
