A Vision for a City Today, a City of Vision Tomorrow
The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC) continues as the next iconic project of Sino-Singapore cooperation after the Suzhou Industrial Park and Tianjin Eco City. The SSGKC project was jointly initiated by leaders from Guangdong and Singapore to serve as a strategic development platform and a model for economic transformation and industrial upgrading. The groundbreaking ceremony of SSGKC was held on 30 June 2010.
A Knowledge-based City to “Live, Work, Learn and Play”
SSGKC is positioned as a unique, vibrant and sustainable city that is highly attractive to both talents and knowledge-based industries. In the next 20 years, SSGKC, covering an area of 123 sq km, is expected to house a live-in population of 500,000 and will provide a harmonious 'live, work, learn and play' environment.
Backed by Favorable Policies and an Engine for Guangdong's Economic Transformation
