Yesterday was the first of two days of the 7th CHINICT, ‘Tech Star in China’ Annual Conference. The vision Franck Nazikan had when first launching CHINICT was to show China itself and the world that ‘Chinization’ or the emergence of China as a tech powerhouse was happening.

Today’s impressive line-up included some of China’s biggest companies who of course were all at once stage an ambitious but game changing start-ups.

The conference was held at Tsinghua University Science Park (TUS Park) in Beijing’s Wudaokou, the heart of China tech industry. TUS’s Jeromy Xue who manages a billion dollar fund proudly said that they are a “hotbed of entrepreneurship” and have housed start-ups from one man and his computer to Google.  Special guests, Frank Greco from the European Union Internet Society and Media and Rosemary Gallant, Principal Commercial Officer at the US Embassy in Beijing both said that Europe and America are both strengthening their relationship with China, to take advantage of its super exciting growth.  The growing influx of attention in China proves that this is where the action is.
