In order to support Shanghai’s Zhangjiang National Innovation Demonstration Zone as a world-class high-tech park, the Bank of Shanghai (BOS) established a science and innovation financial service center in Zhangjiang on Mar 12.
The center will build a resource platform jointly with Zhangjiang Group, establish an information-sharing mechanism, and provide financial services from online to offline for scientific and innovative enterprises in Zhangjiang.
At the establishment ceremony, BOS also signed credit granting agreements with some of Zhangjiang’s sci-tech enterprises, such as Xiaoyi Technology Co Ltd and MicroPort CardioFlow Medtech Co Ltd, with a total amount of nearly 500 million yuan ($74.5 million).
