The Origins of SSGKC

In September 2008, Guangdong and Singapore envisioned the joint development of the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC) project which, with the strong support of leaders from both Guangdong and Singapore, broke ground on 30 June 2010. The project aims to foster closer cooperation between China and Singapore and expand Guangdong's global outreach. In addition, the project was purposed to accelerate the industrial transformation and upgrading of the Pearl River Delta region, and represents Guangzhou's and Guangdong's future internationally competitive economic platform. The Guangzhou Knowledge City continues as the next iconic project of Sino-Singapore strategic cooperation after the Suzhou Industrial Park and Tianjin Eco-city.
