"Its annual production capacity is expected to reach 10 GWh, and the project will generate an annual output value of 8 billion yuan when it begins operating. The new project will advance the development level of Xiamen's new energy vehicle (NEV) industry, and help the city introduce more NEV manufacturing enterprises," according to authorities of CALB.
With a total investment of 8.6 billion yuan, the Collaborative Innovation Park of Digital Economy for Cross-Straits Youth will be located in the Pingtan Comprehensive Experimental Zone, which is aiming to become a hub for digital high-tech enterprises from across the Straits.
