(Reporter: Guo Ruoxue) On May 23, the reporter visited the construction site of military-civilintegration industrial park phase I startup site on the north wing of the Concentrated Development Area of the Science and Technology City. Myriads of projects are being constructed with cranes towering, machines roaring and welding spattering, showing the ¡°speed¡± and ¡°popularity¡± of constructing the Science and Technology City.

Youxian District is not the exception. At the core area of the Concentrated Development Area of the National Science and Technology City, such as Fucheng District, Anzhou District, and the High-tech Zone, busy scenes can be seen everywhere. The landing of a number of major industrial projects such as the three strategic centers of BOE Flexible Panels, 360 Enterprise Security Group, and HKC's 8.6th generation thin-film transistor liquid crystal display device production line, have contributed to the strong rise of the National Science and Technology City with military-civil integration as the most prominent feature.

Carrying the national mission and innovating the path of development is the original goal of constructing the National Science and Technology City. In this year¡¯s government work report, it is clearly stated that it is necessary to speed up the construction of the National Science and Technology City, focus on advancing the in-depth development of military-civilintegration and the construction of national innovation-oriented cities, improve the mechanism for military-local cooperation and institutional-local cooperation, promote the reform of key areas, and strive to form more Mianyang experience which can be ¡°copied¡± and drawn on.

It is precisely because of this guideline, the popularity of constructing the National Science and Technology City echoes the growth rate of the scientific and technological SMEs in our city.

According to the latest data, 347 small-medium-sized SMEs have been established by the end of April this year, which means that three scientific and technological enterprises are set up each day in Mianyang.

The rapid growth of scientific and technological SMEs owes to the fact that Mianyang will focus on mass entrepreneurship and mass innovation as a major target of constructing the Science and Technology City. To that end, Mianyang has continued to improve various policies and measures, and successively issued more than 10 policies such as Ten Policies Concerning Mianyang¡¯s Expanding the Personnel Autonomy of Institutions of Higher Learning, Research Institutes And Medical Institutions. The policies concerning innovation and entrepreneurship have facilitated the emergence of a number of ¡°hidden champion¡± and ¡°singles champion¡± enterprises which boast market shares, advanced technologies and brands. They have also boosted the construction of the Science and Technology City in terms of quantity and quality. According to relevant person from the Municipal Bureau of Technology and Intellectual Property Rights, Mianyangenjoys rich resources in science and technology, which undoubtedly becomes the reason why so many technological makers have preferred Mianyang. Mianyng will build an upgraded version of ¡°Double Creation¡± and accelerate the establishment of an innovative and entrepreneurial resource sharing platform, expand the marketized and specialized mass entrepreneurship space. It also strives to build a science and technology business incubator of 1.15 million square meters this year, which accommodates 4,000 enterprises.

How can the National Science and Technology City with military-civil integration as the most prominent feature solve the institutional and mechanical bottlenecks throughout development? Mianyangis the first in the province to establish the Military-civil Integration Development Committee. It has continuously improved the military-civilian integration system and mechanism for the efficient military-local coordination, explored new ways for the development of military-civil integration of the National Science and Technology City, actively promoted the development and innovation of military-civilian integration, focused on activating resources in science and technology, and promoted the ¡°nuclear fission¡± of technological achievements into to development achievements.

Located at the innovation center, the military-civil integration large-scale scientific instrument sharing platform is the bridge linking military technologies and civil industries and also one of the most vivid portrayals of the perfect collision between technology and markets. Each day, various types of technology-based companies are entitled to more than 8,000 inspection and inspection projects by using more than 3,000 special instruments of more than 100 military institutes, companies, and service platforms.

"This year, the military-civil integration large-scale scientific instrument sharing platform will further help localities and scientific research institutes and universities to jointly promote the sharing of national defense and related scientific research resources across the military, the people and different industries. It aims to improve the efficiency of exploiting scientific and technological resources and increase the number of service enterprises by 20% over the previous year. According to the relevant person from the Municipal Bureau of Technology and Intellectual Property Rights, the National Military and Civil Technology Exchange Center will also establish ¡°chain stores¡± in important cities across the country to optimize service processes and focus on many aspects. By doing so, we can promote the large-scale, marketized and specialized transactions of military-civilian dual-use technologies.
