Xi'an Hi-tech Industries Development Zone was the first high-tech industry standardization demonstration zone to be established in China, and the government has selected it is as one of the six domestic high-tech zones that will be developed into a world-class science park.

The sci-tech innovation competitiveness of the zone ranks third in China, and some of the world’s leading sci-tech projects in recent years were developed in the zone, including the three international wireless communication standards, China’s first SP30 super SPC switchboard, the country’s first piezoelectric ceramic transformer, as well as its first magnetic-optical current transformer, first digital and visual studio, first antenna for mobile communication base stations, first self-focusing lens, as well as its first targeting-agent using nanotechnology.

Over 90% of about 12,000 sci-tech achievements developed in the zone have self-owned intellectual property rights. On average, six sci-tech achievements are developed every day, every technological company owns more than two patents and one self-owned intellectual property right.

Three state level university sci-tech industrial parks offer advantageous opportunities for further development of enterprises in the zone.

Strong Research Capability

Xi'an has 672 research institutions above municipal level, 130 national key labs, technical research centers and industrial test centers, and more than 3,000 research and innovation institutions of all industry types.

Over 3,000 new technological results are developed every year, including 1,000 key technological results.

Some important components of "Shenzhou VI", "Shenzhou VII" and "Shenzhou VIII" are developed in Xi'an.
