As the main high-tech industry base in Beijing, Beijing E-Town is stepping up the construction of a new-generation  information technology industry, the automotive and pharmaceutical health industries and expanding the scale of the robot and equipment industries. 

During this exchange, Beijing E-Town focused on the automotive industry as a breakthrough point to introduce the youth delegation to intelligent manufacturing.

The delegation's first stop was the Apollo Park Autonomous Driving Base, where they visited historical vehicle exhibition areas, intelligent automobile exhibition areas, intelligent transportation exhibition areas, and 5G cloud driving exhibition areas. They experienced riding in unmanned vehicles.

Afterwards, the delegation visited the exhibition hall on the first floor of the Boda Building to learn Beijing E-Town's 30-year development history. 

Among young entrepreneurs in the delegation, about 70 percent are from abroad. This exchange enabled them to see the development level of intelligent manufacturing in Beijing E-Town, the potential for Sino-foreign joint ventures, understand the achievements of China's economic development in the new era and the relevant industries and investment policies in Beijing E-Town. 

This also establishes a platform for communication and cooperation among young entrepreneurs from China and abroad, and promote Sino-foreign business cooperation in Beijing E-Town.

Young entrepreneurs are an important force behind social progress and an important source of power for world economic development. 

Beijing E-Town will continue to create an open and inclusive international business environment in the years ahead, providing opportunities and convenience for international young entrepreneurs to invest and start businesses in the area.
