Xinhua Silk Road: E. China’s Quanzhou: cheering up the power of technological innovation

BEIJING, Nov. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Quanzhou, a city in east China’s Fujian Province, is not only an innovation-driven manufacturing city, but also a creative hub that witnesses cutting-edge technologies continuously empower the high-quality development of the private economy.

Sanan Sino-Science Photobiotech Co., Ltd. (SANANBIO) in Anxi County, Fujian Province, is a factory where the entire production process is totally unmanned, with robots automatically carrying out sowing, cultivation, harvesting and other operations.

The 2022 Report on the Work of the Quanzhou Municipal Government shows that in the past five years, more than half of the city’s enterprises above designated size have participated in digital transformation.
