Four, Unprecedented Scale, Achieving Cross-Regional Collaboration

This conference, spanning 2 days, is expected to host over 1000 participants in person, with an additional estimated 50,000 participants online. Moreover, this conference will achieve cross-regional collaboration by setting up a sub-forum in the Dapeng New District, contributing powerful support to the construction of Shenzhen as a demonstration zone for life and health innovation in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and the creation of an internationally renowned hub for the biopharmaceutical industry.

Biopharmaceuticals are widely recognized as a "sunrise industry." In recent years, Shenzhen has vigorously developed its biopharmaceutical industry, making significant progress in various aspects, such as the scale of the industry, innovation capabilities, drug research and development, specialized parks, industry financing, talent aggregation, and regional layout. This progress has been achieved through measures such as the improvement of specialized industrial policies, the promotion of major innovation platforms, and the continuous optimization of the industrial ecosystem.

Data released during the press conference showed that in 2022, the operating income of pharmaceutical enterprises in Shenzhen reached 48.7 billion yuan, with 6 Shenzhen enterprises making it onto the "2022 Top 100 Chinese Pharmaceutical Companies" list.

Furthermore, with a focus on the well-being of the people and a dedication to high-level scientific self-reliance, Shenzhen continues to improve its scientific and technological innovation system to support the high-quality development of the biopharmaceutical industry. The city is accelerating the construction of major innovation platforms such as the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology and the Shenzhen Bay Laboratory. It has also established over 500 innovation carriers at various levels in the field of biopharmaceuticals. In addition, the city has established 1 national-level clinical medicine research center, 4 provincial-level centers, and 14 municipal-level centers, fully supporting the strategic development of the Greater Bay Area as an international scientific and technological innovation center.

The press conference also highlighted the progress made in the construction of the Ping Shan-Dapeng Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Health Innovation Demonstration Zone. This demonstration zone, planned jointly by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Shenzhen Municipal Government, is a new type of innovation platform that relies mainly on the Shenzhen National Biotechnology Base and the Baishilong Core Startup Zone of the Shenzhen International Biotech Valley. Its focus is on the development of three strategic emerging industries: biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, and the health industry, as well as two future industries: cell and gene technology, and brain science and artificial intelligence. The innovation of the demonstration zone follows a model of "coordination between the city and the district, collaboration among departments" and is being built through joint efforts between the municipal government and the district government. This creates a development pattern that complements other key areas such as Qianhai, Hetao, and Guangming, and fosters a strong and coordinated development layout. The ultimate goal is to create a dynamic source of high-quality development for Shenzhen's biopharmaceutical industry.

As the main park and core area for the development and aggregation of the bio-industry in Shenzhen, Ping Shan District is home to the country's first and only national bio-industry base. It is also the core park of Shenzhen National High-Tech Zone, known as the "most important platform and industrial space for Shenzhen's biopharmaceutical industry." In recent years, it has made remarkable achievements in building an ecological system that encompasses the entire chain of "research and development + transformation + production."

Currently, the bio-industry in Ping Shan has formed an advanced manufacturing cluster with a focus on biopharmaceuticals, high-end medical devices, and the health industry. With an average annual increase of over 120 enterprises, the total number of enterprises has exceeded 1,000. The annual growth rate of output value is over 20%. Leading industry players such as Sanofi Pasteur and China National Pharmaceutical Group have been attracted to the area, as well as innovative companies like Prukkin and Huaxian Pharmaceutical. This has established the "Shenzhen BioPark" as a new landmark in the industry, marking its entrance into a period of rapid growth and prosperity.
