Pengsaid the district will fully support companies looking at the share market. For those who get listed, the district will offer a bonus of 5 million yuan.

In the future, the comprehensive zone will take full advantage of its location in the Yangtze River Delta Ecology and Greenery Integration Demonstration Zone and the spillover effect from the China International Import Expo to further open up to the world.
