IC industry, Xiangzhou District
On March 21, Liu Hong, Member of the Standing Committee of Xiangzhou District and Deputy District Mayor, visited the AppoTech headquarter in Hong Kong to enhance the collaboration and development of the IC industry in Zhuhai and Hong Kong. The meeting began at 10 a.m. and was chaired by Chuck Cheng, the CEO of AppoTech. Mr. Liu visited the headquarter offices and discussed with Mr. Cheng about how Zhuhai can take advantage of its IC industry in the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
CEO Chuck Cheng maintained that Zhuhai has particularly favorable natural conditions and lots of talents. According to him, although the IC design industry in Zhuhai is not as productive as international enterprises like Hisilicon, it has already made much progress during the past years and has more related talents and firms than other cities in the Greater Bay Area. Since the Zhuhai government has been working hard to prop up these IC design companies, the city is certain to attract more talents and new firms that want to engage in the IC industry to settle down there. Deputy District Mayor Liu Hong expressed thanks to Mr. Cheng and hoped that Mr. Cheng can recommend or introduce more IC design teams to start their business in Zhuhai.
