China-Australia Modern Industry Park (Zhoushan) Project

The China-Australia Modern Industry Park (the Park) is located on Jintang Island of the Zhoushan archipelago, Zhejiang. With an investment exceeding RMB10 billion, the Park is expected to function as a free trade zone for processing of premium imported animal proteins, grains, edible oils, and aquatic products, processing and trading of commodities such as iron ore and coal, as well as finance, business, information and other services, in an effort to boost cooperation between China and Australia on agricultural products, food imports, processing, trade and services.

 

China and Australia are highly complementary in terms of resources and markets, with huge potential for commercial cooperation. In 2014, Chairman of New Hope Group Liu Yonghao and Australian entrepreneur Mr. Andrew Forrest co-initiated the Sino Australia One Hundred Year Agricultural and Food Safety Partnership (ASA100) with the intention of further promoting the cooperation between the two countries in agricultural infrastructure, trade in agricultural products, food safety, the industrial chain for agriculture, etc. In November 2014, the Memorandum of understanding on the ASA100 was officially signed in Canberra in the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. In December 2015, the China–Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) took effect, bringing tremendous opportunities to commercial and trade cooperation between the two countries.

 

On February 25, 2016, the Provincial Government of Zhejiang entered into a strategic cooperation framework agreement in Hangzhou with New Hope Group and Harvest Fund. This framework agreement includes the establishment of the Overseas Agricultural Development Fund that aims to promote the development of the Park. Under the agreement, the Fund will be established in early 2016, with a phase-1 investment of RMB3 billion; the Provincial Government of Zhejiang will invest RMB1 billion in addition to policy in support of the fund.

 

On April 14, 2016, the Provincial Government of Zhejiang and the Australian Trade Commission signed a memorandum on cooperation in Beijing, reaching a series of agreements in support of the Park project. The Chinese and Australian Prime Ministers witnessed the signing of the agreements as one of the results of Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's official visit to China. These agreements are expected to facilitate the Park project and thus boost the depth and breadth of cooperation and trade in multiple fields including agriculture and food and bring new opportunities to Chinese and Australian companies and investors participating in the ASA100.
