Shanghai Shibei Industrial Park (Shanghai Shibei IP) was set up in 1992 upon receiving approval from the Planning Committee of the Shanghai municipal government. It was authorized by the State Development and Reform Committee to be a municipal-level development zone in 2006. The Shibei IP is located in Zhabei District in the northern part of Shanghai. The area of the park is 3.13 sq km.

Shanghai Shibei IP is only 8 km from Nanjing Road, which is at the heart of the Central Business District of Shanghai. Shanghai’s two airports, Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport, are 20 km and 50 km away from the park, respectively. The park is quite close to the Shanghai-Jiading Expressway, the Shanghai- Nanjing Expressway and the Shanghai-Hangzhou Expressway.

Shanghai Port, the largest port in the world in terms of container throughput in 2013, is only 6 km away.

The park can draw from a large talent pool. Located in the downtown area of Shanghai, the park is near Fudan University, Shanghai University, and Hubei College and Xingjian College of Tongji University.

In 2009, Shanghai Shibei IP renamed as Shanghai Shibei High-tech Industrial Development Zone (Shanghai Shibei HIDZ).

Investment Climate
Shanghai Shibei HIDZ focuses on the development of the electronics and telecommunications industries. It also encourages investment in R&D, information technology, biochemicals, and other high-tech industries.

In 2012, the gross industrial output from the park topped RMB 6.6 billion, 20.59% more than a year earlier. The contracted FDI in the zone totaled US$81.13 million in 2012. 29 new foreign-funded projects had been launched in the zone in 2012. Major investors include AAE Express and Kohler from the U.S., Sumitomo from Japan and Angolo Po from Italy. Several big domestic companies, including China Railway Group, have also established a presence in the park.

As of the end of 2013, over 2,000 high-end service eenterprises had settled in the zone. AAE Express, a top U.S.-based delivery services provider, established its head-quarters in mainland China in the park, primarily to serve its customers in the Asia-Pacific region. Later in the same year, another company, home-and-garden appliance maker Kohler, also moved its headquarters to the park.
