When the hot air of developing high-tech industries was in Nanjing, Dr. Wang Mei from Silicon Valley brought the delegation of North American China Semiconductor Association (NACSA) to Nanjing for the first time. First, talks with the city leaders, followed by more than one day of continuous visits and inspections. What makes the high-tech elites from Silicon Valley so fond of Nanjing? What is the impression of this ancient and young city? Nanjing, an exclusive interview with Wang Mei, president of NACSA ​​and scientific research director of Cisco Asia Pacific.

Our interests are outside Beijing and Shanghai.

In front of the sand table of the Hexi New City Construction Command, several members of the delegation pointed out the position of Jiangxinzhou in the sand table and eagerly asked: What to do here? When I heard that the island was planning to become a smart island, they showed an excited expression: Great, such a good place should be research and development! A delegation member said happily: Many places in China feel that the development of the software industry is to build a building and then introduce the company. Nanjing considers the natural and human environment together with the development of the industry. We heard it for the first time in China.

Reporter: When the delegation arrived in Nanjing for two hours, you said that the impression of Nanjing is very good. Why?

Wang Mei: Half of the members of the delegation are coming to Nanjing for the first time, including myself. But Nanjing is a well-known city, including in Silicon Valley. There are many elites in Silicon Valley who are out of Nanjing. We have long known that Nanjing is a place for talent. When the delegation arrived in Nanjing, they witnessed the beauty of Nanjing. There are mountains and waters, and the greenery is so good. It is really a place to live.

Reporter: Compared with places like Beijing and Shanghai, Nanjing does not have an advantage in terms of popularity and market. What is the attraction for you?

Wang Mei: The biggest interest of this delegation when visiting the country is actually outside Beijing and Shanghai. Because relatively speaking, the development of high-tech industries there tends to be saturated, and cities like Nanjing have a vast space, which is where the opportunity lies. High-tech, high-density, high-knowledge industries do not necessarily have to be inspired by scientific and technological talents in the largest ports, the largest cities, or the most prosperous places in trade. At the same time, I feel that Nanjing's talents may be more stable than Beijing and Shanghai, which is one of the advantages. We understand that Nanjing now attaches great importance to the development of high-tech industries from top to bottom, attaches importance to research and development, software, and has many practical measures that are visible and tangible. This is very attractive to us.

The premise is that there is an open mind

During the discussion with the High-tech Zone Management Committee, members of the delegation seemed to have such a slight concern: Are these parks wanting to introduce large enterprises and well-known multinational companies? These embraced projects, young people with entrepreneurial plans tentatively understand What is the attitude of the park for technology companies in the initial and growth stages. The answer from a person in charge of the high-tech zone made them relieved: Our approach here is particularly flexible. We don’t just want to attract companies, but the best talents. I want to play here!

Reporter: There are many places in China that put high-tech industries such as software as the focus of development, and introduced a generous policy. What kind of service environment do you hope Nanjing has?

Wang Mei: I think that everyone can discuss the specific things, because the requirements of each enterprise and each entrepreneur are different. I think the premise is that we must have an open mind. I have learned that there have been a lot of exchanges between Nanjing and the outside world recently. For example, the delegation went to Zhongguancun to visit, and invited all kinds of people to come to Nanjing. In such a rich exchange of interactions, you can broaden your thinking and more. Understanding the actual needs of entrepreneurs and investors is good for providing good services. I think that for those of us who are engaged in the high-tech industry, what we need more is an atmosphere, for example, to provide us with a place similar to the technology park, where we have a common platform and can communicate freely.

Reporter: What kind of experience does Silicon Valley have to be worth learning from Nanjing?

Wang Mei: The success of Silicon Valley, talent is very important, and the other is VC (risk investment) mechanism. There are many talents in Nanjing. How to establish a mechanism to turn scientific research results into actual benefits is very important.

We are very optimistic about Nanjing

During the short visit, the delegation was also looking for opportunities while also feeling the thirst for Nanjing. In the high-tech zone, in the Xuzhuang Software Park, everyone repeatedly lamented that the time was too short and there was no more chance of face-to-face contact.

Reporter: What kind of organization is the China Semiconductor Association of North America? What is the purpose of this visit?

Wang Mei: NACSA ​​is a professional community dedicated to promoting the development and cooperation of professionals in the Chinese high-tech industry. Every year, we organize entrepreneur delegations to visit China and receive delegations from domestic governments and high-tech industries. I very much hope that I will have the opportunity to receive a delegation from Nanjing next time. The visiting team has experts in semiconductor, software, network, new energy and other fields. Everyone comes with their own projects and hopes to find opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation in China.

Reporter: Have you brought the project yourself? Are you willing to invest in Nanjing?

Wang Mei: We are very optimistic about Nanjing. Of course, we are very willing to invest in Nanjing! I have worked in Cisco, the world's largest network instrument manufacturer, for 8 years. Not long ago, the president of our company signed the next five years with China's National Development and Reform Commission. I am one of the leaders of a cooperative project, so I have a project on the development of the next generation Internet. I will use Nanjing as the first choice for investment.
