Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region is set to make full use of its geographic advantages and build a special district for top talents from its neighboring ASEAN, Cao Kunhua, director of the Guangxi Science and Technology Department, said on Feb 24.

Guangxi is the only region of its kind in China that borders ASEAN countries both by land and sea, and has been designated a frontier area for opening-up and cooperation with ASEAN.

Cao said that Guangxi will seek to attract talents from ASEAN countries and turn the region into a cluster for high-caliber talents, innovation resources as well as international communication and cooperation. 

Currently, the region has established intergovernmental bilateral technology transfer working mechanisms with nine ASEAN countries, and has joint working groups on technology transfer with seven ASEAN countries.

The region has been one of the first batch of areas in China to implement a scheme which invites outstanding young scientists from ASEAN to work in China.

Cao said that the region will focus on technological innovation and industrial revitalization to further optimize projects and platforms for overseas talents. Employers in Guangxi are encouraged to attract high-caliber overseas experts to carry out scientific research in Guangxi.

In order to improve the entrepreneurship and innovation environment for global talents, Guangxi will take initiatives such as building special hospitals and libraries for overseas experts.

The region will grasp development opportunities brought by major national strategies such as the construction of the Belt and Road, the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the construction of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor, in order to prompt national or high-level innovation platforms to set up branches in Guangxi, offering strong support for Guangxi to build at least one regional innovation center for ASEAN in each field.


广西建设面向东盟的国际人才特区


广西壮族自治区科学技术厅厅长曹坤华24日介绍,广西将利用毗邻东盟的地缘优势实现特殊化、差异化引才,以建设中国—东盟科技城为契机,建设面向东盟的国际人才特区。

广西是中国唯一与东盟海陆相连的省区,是中国面向东盟开放合作的前沿和窗口。曹坤华称,广西将充分利用其承担中国—东盟创新合作的有利条件,大力引进东盟国际人才,打造面向东盟拓展至RCEP成员国的高端人才云集、创新要素富集、国际交流合作汇集的人才集聚区。

目前,广西已推进与东盟9个国家分别建立了政府间双边技术转移工作机制,与7个东盟国家组建了技术转移联合工作组,并与东盟国家建立了12个农业科技园区。广西成为中国率先启动实施“东盟杰出青年科学家来华入桂工作计划”的地区之一。

曹坤华称,广西将聚焦科技创新需求和产业振兴,进一步优化“东盟杰出青年科学家来华入桂工作计划”“广西高端国(境)外人才引进”“国(境)外科学家领衔承担科技项目”等外国人才项目和平台,支持用人单位精准引进来自东盟国家、“一带一路”沿线国家杰出青年科学家以及其他国际高层次外国专家入桂开展科研工作,合作培养科技领军人才。

为优化健全国际人才创业创新生态环境,广西将深入实施外国人来华工作许可制度和外国人才签证制度,大力推进广西外国高端人才服务“一卡通”政策,打造“线上+线下”相结合的广西外国专家书屋,深入推进“广西外国专家友善医院”建设,解决在桂工作外国专家“看病难”问题。

据介绍,广西将抓住国家深入推进“一带一路”建设、加快粤港澳大湾区发展、支持西部陆海新通道建设等重大机遇,引进国家级、高水平创新平台到广西建立分支机构,引导更多国内外一流创新资源和高端人才智力入桂,为每个行业领域建成一个以上统筹全国资源、面向东盟的区域性创新中心提供强大支持。
