In early March this year, Bauing Group became a shareholder of the new high-tech enterprise Shenzhen Innovaconn Systems Co., Ltd, so as to go further into the high-tech industries. As one of the enterprisesincubated by the Institute of New Energy led by president Mao Sheng, Innovaconn has obvious technical advantages in the field of high and new technology. Theinvestment toInnovaconn made by Bauing Group is not only for the strategic cooperation between enterprises, but also for the cooperation between people. The experts in new energy and new materials represented by president Mao Sheng give up the superior conditions overseas, and return to China without any hesitation, so as to support the development of national high-tech industries. Furthermore, Innovaconn introduces the advanced science and technologies as well as top talents from all over the world by establishing platforms, and transforms the scientific and technological achievements by enterprise incubation. The staff members of Bauing Group highly admire Innovaconn since it has devoted itself to promoting the innovation and development of the science and technologies in Shenzhen and even the whole country.”, said chairman GuShaoming.He also said, “It is necessary for Bauing Group to make investments in the high-tech enterprises for transformation and development.

President Mao Sheng mentioned the tide of transformation from traditional enterprises to scientific and technological enterprisesin the seminar, which has indicated that the development of new energy technologies is completely in line with thedevelopment plans on the national industrial upgrading. It is necessary for the new energy development to fully draw lessons from the Silicon Valley mode, so as to realize the win-win cooperationof capital andtechnology. Dr. Paul E. Burrows said, “The integration of technology and capital will certainlypromote the new energy technology for making more progresses, and will make generous profits for enterprises. The Institute of New Energy hopes to make cooperation with more enterprises, so as to make contributions to the world’s energy research together.” Dr. Gunnar Westin had confidence in the development of new energy all over the world, and said that the enterprises have played a significant role inthe development of new energy. As the scientist who once took part in the research and development of green building decoration materialsin Europe, Dr. George Kiriakidis said, “The green decoration materials are the development trend of decorative materials. We hope to have the opportunity to make in-depth cooperation with Bauing Group in this aspect.”
