Qingpu Industrial Park
Qingpu Industrial Park, growing out of Shanghai Western Industrial Park, was established in August 1995. On November 25, 1995, approved by Shanghai Municipal People's Government, it was classified as a municipality-class industrial zone.
Qingpu Industrial Park is located in Qingpu County in the western part of Shanghai and is integrated with the county seat of Qingpu County. The total planned area is 16.16 square kilometres. It is adjacent to National Highway No. 318 in the south, stands by Beiqing Highway from Shanghai to Qingpu in the north, faces Youdun Harbour in the east and adjoins Xidaying Harbour in the west. Its geographic position is very favourable: 17 kilometres from the Hongqiao International Airport, 40 kilometres from Shanghai city centre, 55 kilometres from the Wusong Wharf, 24 kilometres from the Dinshan Lake Tourist Scenic Spot, 75 kilometres from Suzhou and 170 kilometres from Hanghou. It has good transport facilities.
At present, its infrastructure facilities have reached a certain scale. The Qingpu Running Water Plant has a capacity of supplying 85,000 tons of water a day and preparations for setting up the No.2 Running Water Plant with a capacity of supplying 200,000 tons of water a day are being actively made. In this zone, there is a 220 KV substation. The tentative ideas are that another 220 KV substation and three 35 KV substations will be built. Telecommunications facilities are perfect. The telecommunications bureau has 10,000 programme-controlled telephones which can provide IDD and DDD services.
Comparatively speaking, Qingpu Industrial Park is sparsely populated, with 612 persons per square kilometre. This is fit for large-scale land leasing. The county town has a population of about 80,000. It is Shanghai's satellite town which has a modern flavour with perfect public facilities and all the necessary service, cultural, educational and living facilities.
Qingpu Industrial Park will build itself into a high-starting-point, comprehensive, multifunctional, export-oriented and exemplary industrial park, which mainly concentrates on developing such industries as automobile parts, electronics telecommunications equipment, household electrical appliance, precision instrument and machinery, textile and clothing, and green food processing. International Hi-Tech Park for China's Textile Industry and Shanghai Municipal Science Commission's Shanghai Science and Technology Park have respectively settled in this park. At present, some large-scaled world-famous corporations from the US and Germany have come to invest in and initiate factories.
