The 45th Cohort of China Postdoctoral Science and Technology Service Corps started their tour in Hengqin, Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province on Wednesday.

This is the second tour Hengqin has arranged to facilitate matchmaking between postdoctoral researchers and enterprises or research institutions. Ten enterprises in Zhuhai put forward more than 50 technological problems to be solved in fields such as biopharmaceuticals, artificial intelligence, and information technology. Twenty-eight members of the service group drafted solutions to 35 of the problems, which will soon be tried in practice.

Li Weihui, deputy secretary of CPC Hengqin New Area Committee, said he hopes the members of the service group can make thorough use of their knowledge to help the enterprises resolve their problems through “win-win cooperation.”

He also highlighted the preferential policies the local government has rolled out to attract talent from around the world and praised Hengqin as an island of opportunity for people to realize their dreams.

A 106-square-kilometer coastal island, Hengqin became a national “new area” for development in 2009 and part of the pilot free-trade zone of Guangdong in2015. It is now home to 44,000 enterprises, and 42 Fortune 500 companies have operations there.

Qiu Chunlei, deputy director of the overseas students and experts service center, Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, spoke highly of Hengqin’s focus on attracting talent, saying that the island provides the service group valuable opportunities to advance their research.

The service group is a project co-organized by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the National Postdoctoral Administrative Committee since 2012 to use the intellectual resources from economically better-off coastal regions to support the development of the central and western parts of China.

According to Qiu, a total of 45 service groups have been formed, and 867 group members have taken part in 864 projects across the country.
