China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park
The China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park (CMQIP) is a cooperative project between the Chinese and Malaysian governments, as well as the third international park jointly constructed by the Chinese government and a foreign government partner. The total planned area of the park is 55 square kilometers.
Focusing on the development of biomedicine, electronic information, equipment manufacturing, new energy and new materials, modern services, as well as traditional ASEAN industries, the park is committed to constructing: a high-end industrial agglomeration area; an integration demonstration area of industry and city; an enrichment area of science, education, and talent resources; as well as an international cooperation and free trade pilot area.
In 2013, the China-Malaysia Joint Venture Company, the main investment entity in the development of the park, was formally established. By the end of 2018, the total area of land requisition and relocation in the park reached 22 square kilometers, and the project layout exceeded 15 square kilometers. In the six years since the park was opened, the total investment in the park has exceeded 14 billion yuan ($1.99 billion), and the land supply rate has increased from less than 40 percent at the beginning of 2015 to more than 70 percent.

The park has also strengthened investment in infrastructure and supporting projects.
