A delegation led by Huai Jinpeng, Party secretary and executive vice-president of the China Association for Science and Technology -- or CAST -- on Aug 26 conducted a fact-finding investigation into the progress being made in the construction of the Innovation China pilot project in Xianning city in Central China's Hubei province, local officials said.

A group of scientific experts from the Biophysical Society of China (BSC) involved in Innovation China -- a program promoting cooperation between scientists and entrepreneurs and commercializing scientific achievements -- also joined the tour, visiting laboratories and sci-tech firms in the city.

The expert team made recommendations to local enterprises after communicating with them and listening to their needs for production technology, as well as their technical problems.

They will make further investigations into the city's high-tech zone and Tongcheng county, aiming to offer tailored technical guidance and scientific services based on field surveys.

Xianning is one of the first 22 pilot cities in the Innovation China program, which was launched by CAST to promote economic and social development through integrating human resources, technology and services.
