The Daqi industrial base for auto parts and molds in Ningbo's Beilun district was recently listed among the eighth group of national experts' service bases, local media reported.
The base was the only one from Zhejiang that made the list, bringing the total number of national experts' service bases in Ningbo to two.
There are currently more than 2,000 enterprises in the base that hires over 40,000 people.
These high-profile talents have greatly bolstered the innovation efforts of the park, which boasts 245 invention patents.
The base has also been leading the digital transformation of the molding industry in China by teaming up with research organs such as Tsinghua University.
Authorities have set the goal of lifting the base's annual output value to 50 billion yuan ($7.69 billion). To achieve the goal, it will further increase its innovation capability by cultivating 20 national level talents, attracting two provincial research institutes, as well as constructing five provincial "future plants" by 2025.
