In May 2020, Beijing Municipal Government specified in a meeting that: as the UAV cluster zone among the top ten high-grade, high-precision and advanced intelligent manufacturing industries, Pinggu District shall make full use of its airspace resources to increase the elements of science and technology, development unique industrial features, and blaze a new path for sci-tech innovation in the development of ecological conservation areas around the goal of “small is beautiful”.
Pinggu District boasts a total airspace area of some 800 square kilometers. Covering a total airspace of about 300 square kilometers, Beijing Shifosi Airport has 1 local flying area and 2 flying training areas. The local flying area is 11×10 kilometers with a flying height of 600 meters. With the only surveillance airspace in Beijing, Jinhai Lake Heliport features an airspace of over 500 square kilometers and a flying height of 1,600 meters. Based on Shifosi Airport, Jinhai Lake Airport and Jinhai Lake Water Airport, the UAV industry forms a spatial pattern comprising fixed-wing aircrafts, helicopters, seaplanes and drones.
The Core Area of the park, located in the southern part in the central area of Yukou Town, Pinggu District, covers an area of over 2,840 acres, of which, 230 acres construction land is included in the scope of Zhongguancun Park in Pinggu. The Extension Area covers the entire Pinggu District except the Core Area. The Radiation Area refers to other areas of Beijing and the areas around Beijing except Pinggu District.
With a focus on the "six major industries" - modern seed industry, smart agriculture, intelligent agricultural equipment, biotechnology, nutrition and health, and food safety, we endeavor to promote seamless connection of agricultural sci-tech parks with industrial parks and logistics parks, develop "high-grade, precision and advanced" agriculture, expand the new "agricultural science plus" business format, and drive integrated development of primary, secondary and tertiary industries.
Over the past two years, we have established partnership with more than 30 domestic and foreign first-class agricultural sci-tech innovation enterprises, and formed strategic partnership with more than 10 domestic and foreign first-class universities and scientific research institutions specialized in agricultural science and technology; all 5 hog breeding projects have been put into production; site selection for livestock and poultry breeds projects like Yuqin Breeding Hens, Capital Agribusiness Group Cows, Cherry Valley Farm Ducks and Beijing Fatty Chickens have been basically completed and construction will start soon.
