Yazhou Bay Science and Technology City is located in the west of Sanya city, adjacent to the two famous scenic spots of Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone and Sanya Dongtian Park. The planned area of the science and technology city is 26.1 square kilometers, and it consists of five parts: Nanfan Science and Technology City, Deep-sea Science and Technology City, University City, Nanshan Harbor, and the Global Transfer Base for Animal and Plant Germplasm Resources.
As an important part of the 12 pilot projects of Hainan province, the city is committed to building a high-tech society based on openness and innovation, flourishing industries, cultural confidence and green energy, thus building a national deep-sea science and technology innovation center, “Nanfan Silicon Valley” and a place where industry, university, research and city are deeply integrated.
The Deep-sea Science and Technology City takes the research, development and application of deep sea science and technology as its leading industry, and general science and technology and the marine supporting industry as its coordinated industry. Nanfan Science and Technology City takes Nanfan scientific research as its basic industry, seed industry technology as its core industry, and tropical agricultural science as its characteristic industry. The University City centers on the marine and agricultural research industries. The Global Transfer Base for Animal and Plant Germplasm Resource base focuses on the introduction of global animal, plant, and microbial germplasm resources.
To date, more than 40 enterprises and institutions such as the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, CITIC Agriculture and Longping High Technologies have successfully signed contracts with Nanfan Science and Technology City.
Enterprises and institutions such as CSSC, CSIC, China Merchants Industry, China Geological Survey, and the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences have been stationed one after another in Deep-sea Science and Technology City.
Famous universities such as Shanghai Jiaotong University, the Ocean University of China, China Agricultural University, Zhejiang University, Wuhan University of Technology, and Harbin Engineering University have successively signed strategic cooperation agreements and gradually settled in order to realize the rapid accumulation of advanced and sophisticated deep-sea technologies.
