The province's hi-tech manufacturing sector has absorbed some 325 million U.S. dollars of contractual overseas investment since the beginning of this year, up 54.8 percent per annum.
Overseas investment in computer application and biotech sectors have reached 32.81 million U.S. dollars and 32.17 million U.S. dollars respectively, up 430 percent and 158 percent per annum.
By the end of June, 85 transnational corporations had invested in 187 projects in Shandong, bringing some 3.55 billion U.S. dollars of contractual overseas investment to the machinery, automobile, electronics, power, building material, textile, chemical and communication sectors.
To date, transnational corporations have set up five research and development centers in Shandong, which have improved the quality of hi-tech products and boosted the local economy.
Meanwhile, hi-tech industrial development zones across the province have carried out extensive cooperation with world renowned enterprises during the past five years. Some 300 projects have been launched, which involve over 10 million U.S. dollars of overseas investment.
