District: Xicheng District
Park Introduction: Xicheng Park of Zhongguancun Science Park was formerly known as Desheng Science Park. It was established in June 2001 with the approval of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and formally opened in May 2002. After two spatial adjustments in 2006 and 2012, the policy area was expanded to 10 square kilometers, including three blocks of Desheng, Beizhan and Guang'an, involving 11 subdistricts of Xicheng District. The park is characterized by being a service park that supports the core functions of the capital, an innovative park driven by the integration of multiple elements, and an intensive park that efficiently uses space resources, and has become an important platform for the development of science and technology, culture and financial new economy, and the promotion of regional transformation and upgrading in Xicheng District.
Xicheng Park firmly grasps the strategic positioning of the capital, closely relies on and serves the core functions of the capital, adheres to Zhongguancun's powerful "innovation gene", and explores a unique embedded and functionally coordinated urban science park development road. It has formed a "1+2+2" industrial layout with financial technology as the leading industry, cultural technology and data industry as the key industries, and intellectual property and new energy as the focuses. The park is the core area of Beijing which has been awarded by UNESCO as the "Design Capital", a national-level financial technology and professional service innovation demonstration area, a national-level culture and technology integration demonstration base, and Beijing's service trade demonstration base. At the same time, it owns China Beijing Publishing Creative Industry Park, Beijing Cultural and Creative Industry Base and Demonstration Base, Zhongguancun Guang'an Military-civilian Integration Characteristic Industry Base, Beijing Future Urban Design Sophisticated Innovation Center, 2 national-level incubators, and 5 national-level mass innovation spaces.
At present, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation are in the ascendant. Driven by new technologies such as mobile Internet, artificial intelligence and big data, new features of cross-border integration of finance and technology are having a significant and far-reaching impact on financial development. In this context, at the beginning of 2018, Xicheng District, after in-depth research and thinking, benchmarked New York's "Silicon Alley" to the Wall Street, and London's "Silicon Roundabout" to the Financial City in east zone, and analyzed the location of Xicheng District's national financial regulatory authorities and the financial, technological, talent, spatial resources and location advantages necessary for the development of financial technology. In April 2018, it formally proposed to Beijing municipal government to transform the released "Beijing Zoo Clothing Wholesale Market" and build a financial technology innovation demonstration zone. This move was affirmed by Beijing municipal Party committee and government, and strongly supported by Beijing Local Financial Supervision and Administration, Zhongguancun Management Committee and Haidian District government.
On May 29, 2018, Chen Jining, mayor of Beijing, officially announced at the annual meeting of Financial Street to build a "Beijing Financial Technology and Professional Service Innovation Demonstration Zone" between Financial Street and Zhongguancun.
On January 31, 2019, the State Council approved the Pilot Plan for Expanding the Opening-up of Beijing Service Industry and clarified the construction of a "national financial technology demonstration zone" in Xicheng District, marking that the "Beijing Financial Technology and Professional Service Innovation Demonstration Zone" built within the policy scope of Xicheng Park has officially become a national strategy and the first national financial technology innovation demonstration zone in China, and that the construction of demonstration zone has entered a new strategic opportunity period."
