The Yixing Industrial Park for Environmental Science & Technology (ES&TP) was built in 1992 as a China national high-tech industrial development zone approved by the State Council and is the only hi-tech (Torch) zone focussed on development of the environmental protection industry in China. The Jiangsu provincial government signed two cooperative plans with Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) respectively in 2013 and 2015 to build the park into a demonstration area for environmental protection industry transformation and to promote globalisation and high-end industry development. The 2015-20 provincial plan for National Self-dependent Innovation Demonstration Zone (NSIDZ) aims to develop ES&TP into a core area for innovative services with global competitiveness.
