Our business enabling project has been proven successful in Minhang District, Shanghai. In 2018, during the first China International Import Expo (CIIE), ITPO Shanghai assisted Minhang District in publishing a report evaluating Minhang’s business enabling environment. The report demonstrates Minhang’s cutting edges in terms of inclusive and sustainable development, high maturity of investment, innovation and start-ups, and government service, comparing Minhang with international cases including Singapore, Frankfurt and the Silicon Valley. This informative report has provided the district with valuable reflections and references to further develop its economy wisely and effectively.
