New Science and Education Town
The New Science and Education Town is located at the intersection of Taicang, Shanghai and Kunshan. The Shanghai Jiamin Rail Transit Line, Suzhou Rail Transit Line S1 and the Taicang South Station of Shanghai-Nantong Railway are currently being extended.
The new town has been identified as an "E-business Demonstration Base of Jiangsu Province", a "National Characteristic Town Featuring Sports and Leisure" and one of the "First Characteristic Towns of Suzhou".
The new town boasts a host of innovation platforms, such as the Jiangsu University Science Park, Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Technical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and NWPU Taicang YRD Research Institute. In addition, several key projects such as FOLIDAY Alps Resort Town are under construction. These projects provide great impetus for the development of three leading industries - information networks, cultural tourism and artificial intelligence.
Currently, the town is striving to become a science and technology demonstration zone, an exemplary modern and garden-like urban area, and a national characteristic town featuring e-sports which meets international norms in sports, leisure, cultural and tourism services.
