National Innovation Demonstration Zones Leading China’s Regional Development


This paper had studied “3 + 1” National Innovation Demonstration Zones (NIDZ) in China, which located in Beijing, Wuhan, Shanghai and Anhui province. There were national level instructions for innovation demonstration zones. These 4 regions would benefit from the specific policy approved by the Chinese government and the whole nation depended on them to improve creative S & T level in the future from “Made in China” to “Created in China”. This paper had compared different aspects among these 4 innovation zones. The “1” Anhui Hefei-Wuhu-Bengbu area (HWB) would benefit from experience made by the “3” earlier innovation zones.
