SIP Designated National Electronic IT Park
The Ministry of Information Industry recently held a ceremony to award titles of National Electronic Information Industrial Parks to 31 industrial parks across the country, which are mainly engaged in the manufacturing of telecommunications, computer and network, audio-visual, or integrated circuit products. Suzhou Industrial Park is one of the five such parks with integrated circuit as leading industry, the others being in Shanghai, Beijing, Ningpo, and Tianjin.
A total of 5 billion US dollars has been invested in SIP enterprises related to integrated circuit industry, and last year, a sales revenue of nearly 9 billion US dollars was registered. An IC industrial chain has been formed in SIP by dozens of world-famous enterprises, with the support of such services as IC designing, chip manufacturing, IC sealing and testing, IC equipment, and raw material supply.
