The launching and plate-unveiling ceremony for four projects, including China-ASEAN Modern Agricultural S&T Demonstration Park, was held on May 28th, 2006. Representatives from the Department of International Cooperation of Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), provincial government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and municipal government of Baise were present at the ceremony. Baise Agricultural S&T Park is one of the 21 pilot parks approved by MOST in September 2001.
China-ASEAN Modern Agricultural S&T Demonstration Park will fully showcase new agro-products, new technologies, new equipment, new production mode, regional agro-economy, local custom and ethnic culture from Baise to areas across the globe. The Park will constitute a basis for demonstration and dissemination of subtropical agriculture and a platform for agricultural, economic, and cultural exchanges. The efforts have been very effective in serving the agriculture, countryside and farmer targeted towards West China, Pan-pearl River Delta, and ASEAN countries.
