The publication has been jointly produced by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Cross-Disciplinary Team on Industrial Parks (CDTIP) and the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation (CAITEC) within the framework of the UNIDO project: “Establishing UNIDO Industrial Parks Guiding Framework”.
To effectively utilize the potential of industrial parks to drive new sustainable pathways towards industrialization, the two organizations produced a publication examining China’s industrial parks development experiences and best practices. The publication proposes a set of guidelines that can be replicated and scaled up, and it acts as a reference tool detailing the processes involved in the development and operationalization of industrial parks.
China offers various successful and diverse industrial parks experiences with global recognition. Its experiences have been successfully replicated and promoted in many countries and have been used as a benchmark model for industrial park development globally. Therefore, in-depth analysis and objective stocktaking of China’s industrial parks development model and the dissemination of its experience is valuable for countries considering industrial park as part of its industrialization policy, in particular developing countries and middle-income economies.
