Suzhou Industrial Park Administrative Committee (SIPAC)

Adhering to the principle of being streamlined, unified and efficient, SIPAC only has seven subordinate bureaus and nearly 120 employees, who are recruited openly from across the country.

Unlike the local authorities of other national development zones in China, which are responsible for both administration and development, SIPAC concentrates on natural resources regulation, administrative approval, pro-business services and coordination with related government departments or agencies at various levels.

SIPAC works closely with CSSD, the Park's main developer, on many aspects of SIP development and management. It is empowered by the State Council to provide a whole range of services in every stage from enterprise establishment, plant construction, labor recruitment to business operation. SIPAC has set up the One-stop Service Center to speed up the investment process and business services.
