Confucius hi-tech Park will specialize in industrial issues related to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and related information technologies. In addition, it is planned to create a large center of traditional Chinese medicine, whose services will be available to residents of Moscow.
The parties agreed to hold a Russian-Chinese investment conference starting in 2019, which will bring together the interests of investors from Russia, China and the United States in the field of technology transfer, intellectual property rights, development of drug production and high-tech products of related industries.
"Representatives of industry and technology platforms from China are frequent guests of SEZ Technopolis Moscow and fruitful cooperation has been established with them to exchange experience in the development of high technologies. I am sure that the placement of Chinese companies in the SEZ will contribute to the development of the industrial potential of the city", — said Alexander Prokhorov, the head of the Department of investment and industrial policy of Moscow.
"We consider the signing of this agreement an important milestone in the further development of trade and economic cooperation between Russia and China, — said Mikhail Getman, Chairman of the biopharmaceutical cluster of SEZ Technopolis Moscow. — The location of the Confucius hi-tech Park on the territory of SEZ Technopolis Moscow will open up new opportunities not only for the biomedical industries of Moscow, but also for all residents of our city. The name of the Park was chosen not by chance, but because of the heritage of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius is directly related to Shandong province, where the city of Qingdao is located”.

The Fund will be able to consolidate innovations in biotechnology, medical technology and digital medicine from around the world and will contribute to the localization and commercialization of the best products in the markets of Russia/CIS and China”.
"We have been implementing cross-border medical projects with China for more than 30 years and have extensive experience in organizing and holding major international conferences of investors, developers and manufacturers, as well as in managing international cooperation projects, — says Tony Chu Tao, founder and head of The Pharma Partners. — Both Russian and Chinese companies can give a lot to each other and benefit from it. We expect high performance of the annual Russian-Chinese investment conference, which will be joined by interested companies and public authorities of the cities of China and Russia. In addition, we hope that companies from Russia and China will be located in the technology parks of Moscow and Qingdao, and we will provide them with all the necessary support in the interests of the peoples of both countries”.
