Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) Overview: Investment in Suzhou 11/18/2010

The China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park is located in Suzhou, China – approximately a 2 hour drive from Shanghai.  I had never been to Suzhou before, but I was working on a project for one of our firm’s customers who is looking at setting up a greenfield facility there.  To be honest, I had spent little time in Jiangsu province for the last 5 years and was blown away at the development that had taken place since my last visit. The number of foreign companies invested in the SIP region is quite impressive.  Check out the list below that I pulled from the SIP Website:

Suzhou Industrial Park Quick Facts:

  • Suzhou Industrial Park covers an area larger than 288 sq km
  • More than 75 Fortune 500 companies have invested there
  • Infrastructure in SIP rivals all major modern industrial parks in China
  • SIP is easily accessed via the Shanghai – Nanjing High Speed Train, by car via Shanghai. Closest airports are the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, Wuxi Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

I also found a great video about SIP on youtube.  Check it out!

Last but not least, if you are considering investing in China, you might find this page on Incorporating a Business in China helpful.

    There is no Suzhou airport. Nearest airports are Hongqiao in Shanghai and the airport in Wuxi.

    John, it appears that you are right. Although I have found that an airport does exist, (google maps) it does not service passenger flights. I also found that the closest airports are as you said: the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, Wuxi Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport in Shanghai. Thank you for the comment and we appreciate your readership! Please let us know if you have any other comments or questions.

    If you are taking Airasia flights, you will touch down at HangZhou International Airport. Suzhou Industrial Park is accessible through the high-speed bullet train from Shanghai, Hangzhou etc.

    It is a very nice place I must say. ^^
