The development of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Dawan District has provided more opportunities for young people. In Zhongshan Yichuang Space Business Incubation Base, Ye Zhimao, a Hong Kong University student, introduced his business experience to the interview group “Media Bay Travel in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao”.
On the afternoon of May 21, the interview group of “Media Bay Travel in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao” entered Zhongshan, went deep into the front line of innovation and Entrepreneurship of young people in Hong Kong and Macao, understood the development opportunities brought by Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, visited advanced equipment manufacturing enterprises with advanced technology, and felt the vigor of building strategic emerging industrial clusters in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao at zero distance.
Hong Kong and Macao Youth Start Their Business Dream in Zhongshan
Ye Zhimao, 22, is a fledgling entrepreneur and a student at Hang Seng University in Hong Kong. As early as 2016, when he first heard the concept of the Great Bay Area in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, he was keenly aware of the business opportunities involved.
After sorting out the resources in hand and investigating the market demand, he saw the current hot video production industry, believing that the operation cost can be controlled and the development potential is huge. So, in September 2017, he entered Yichuang Space Business Incubation Base in Zhongshan City, and started his business with his brother.
Zhongshan’s good entrepreneurial atmosphere, low start-up costs and preferential policies in the context of Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and the Great Bay Area attract more and more young people like Ye Zhimao to innovate and start businesses in cities like Zhongshan with high-quality projects.
The same choice was made by the Macao youth Xie Jiarong. Eight years ago, Xie Jiarong resigned from Singapore NEC Company to come to Zhongshan. Xie Jiarong said that he is more concerned about Zhongshan’s location advantages. One-hour traffic circle can radiate most cities in Dawan District, with abundant talent reserves, low start-up costs and preferential policies.
In recent years, Xihe Technology Co., Ltd. of Zhongshan City, founded by Xie Jiarong, has increased its turnover by 50% annually. In 2018, the company not only successfully signed a number of project cooperation contracts with Singaporean enterprises, but also established a branch company in Beijing.
Grasping the opportunities of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Dawan District and participating in its rapid development has become the common choice of more and more young people.
Bringing together Talents from Dawan District to Accelerate Innovation and Development
Two years ago, Chen Lianzhong, Lin Weishen and Pan Ruijia set up a team to enter Yichuang Space and founded Zhongshan Zhongtaineng Technology Co., Ltd. to devote themselves to the large-scale application of agricultural Internet of Things and the development of agricultural intelligent hardware.
At first, there were only five people in the team, and the office space was only 60 square meters. Fortunately, the easy-to-create space reduces their business costs to the minimum, saving 40,000 yuan in office rental costs alone. More importantly, Yi Chuang Space has given a lot of guidance in policy application, personnel recruitment, enterprise planning and other aspects, and has received a lot of mature enterprise resources in the park to cooperate with them.
After two years of business incubation, 60 square meters of office can no longer accommodate their more product innovation ideas. On December 30, 2018, the team successfully hatched from Vulnerable Space and rented 600 square meters of space nearby.
Today, the business of the company has expanded to all parts of the country. In early 2019, we also communicated with the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Applied Technology in Dawan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, and planned to introduce artificial intelligence into intelligent hardware.
“With the development of the company, there is a great demand for high-end talents. We are looking forward to recruiting more excellent talents in universities such as Hong Kong and Macao. In the future, we will expand to overseas markets such as Britain, Brazil and Germany. Chen Lianzhong said.
Many Zhongshan enterprises are actively taking advantage of the historical opportunity of Dawan District, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao to upgrade and develop, whether they are small start-up enterprises or large and medium-sized enterprises that have already listed on the market. Mingyang Intelligent Energy Group Co., Ltd., also located in Zhongshan, is turning this desire into reality.
This listed company, whose main development direction is fan manufacturing and clean energy, not only makes offshore wind power with international leading technology a beautiful scenic line in the coastal areas of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, but also realizes a magnificent turn from technology import to equipment and technology export.
“The energy cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao is getting closer and closer, and the speed of promoting low-carbon energy is fast. The development of offshore wind power will vigorously promote the transformation and upgrading of energy structure in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. Zhang Chuanwei, chairman of the enterprise, said that the Great Bay area of Guangdong, Hongkong and Macau brings great development opportunities to enterprises. In the future, it will plan to promote cooperation with Hongkong in offshore wind power construction and continue to take an active part in the construction of “one belt and one road”.
