Zhongshan Municipal Peoples Government will host Zhongshan Investment Opportunities Promotion Seminar on Dec 15, 5:00pm-8:00pm, at Junior Ballroom of Marriott Oakland City Center. We cordially invite you and your colleagues to attend this event.

Besides Mayor of Zhongshan and the delegates, the event will also attract other local officials including California State Officials, Alameda County Officials, Mayor of Oakland, city council members and a lot of representatives of biotech/pharma companies.

Zhongshan is the hometown of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the great forerunner of Chinas democratic revolution. In 2016, the citys per capita GDP reached $15,000; the total size of R&D investment topped USD ~$1 billion with 7,597 filed patent applications, accounting for 2.4% of the total GDP.  In additionthere are 882 high-tech enterprises and 42 post-Ph.D work stations. It also nested over 160 universities and research institutions.  The National Health Technology Park in Zhongshan is one of the first national health industrial park in China, which had generated about $6 Billion USD output in 2016.  Besides Novartis Group, Ferring, A&Z and other globally well-known pharmaceutical companies, it is also the home for hundreds of biotech/pharma and medical devices companies.

The success of Akeso Bio Pharma is considered a natural outcome from the park incubator program.  The company focuses on discovering and developing innovative biologics with international intellectual rights for the treatment of a broad spectrum of diseases, especially in co-developing antibody drugs with strategic partners.  Following its A-round seeding investment in July 2015, it soon secured the collaboration with Merck for R&D and commercialization of an immune checkpoint blocking antibody AK107, which lead to as much as $200M USD milestone payment.

We sincerely invite you to attend this limited-seat event, where you could have opportunity to meet and talk with the government officials as well as other associates.  The tentative agenda is listed below for your reference.
