Guian New Area, established in 2014, is a national-level economic zone in Southwest China's Guizhou province. It shoulders three major responsibilities - driving economic growth in western China, breaking new ground in economic opening and acting as the benchmark of sound and vibrant eco-system zone.
In 2017, Guian New Area will promote high-end service and other industries to pave the way for further expansion in the coming years, including three service centers - Guian Duty Free Zone, Huaxi University Town and Seven Star Lake Technology Town - as well as 10 bases that provide feature services such as Virtual Reality (VR), semiconductor and pharmaceuticals in 2018.
