Unused factories and warehouses in China are to be transformed into innovation hubs.

And fostering a spirit of collaboration is central to the new plans announced today by the Chinese government.

Industry, universities and research centres are being called on to work together and innovate to help create jobs and growth in key sectors.

Establishing a culture of innovation is the priority for companies and governments across the world. China is creating these new innovation zones in a bid to attract investment and boost the development of some of its most important industries, including manufacturing and IT.
