The UAV industry is an emerging industry of strategic importance in Nanjing. The municipal government has made an enormous investment in it. The Civil Aviation Administration of China recently released a list of the first 13 unmanned civil aviation test sites (test areas) in China. Among them, Nanjing was the only city in Jiangsu Province that was approved as an unmanned civil aviation test area.
In recent years, Pukou District has cooperated closely with Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA) and China United Network Communications Limited based on its own geographical advantages, achieved mutual complementarity in cooperation, and actively promoted technical research and the development of the UAV industry. It has built China's first worldwide united network 5G UAV base based on SA networking. In October 2019, Pukou High-tech Zone organized the "2019 China (Nanjing) International UAV System Industry Conference" and released the Pukou High-tech Zone's Policy on the UAV Industry to bring together more leading UAV enterprises and talent, optimize the entrepreneurial environment and innovation ecosystem of the UAV industry, foster a number of heavyweight UAV enterprises that are crucial to the future of the high-tech zone, accelerate the industrial transformation and upgrading in the high-tech zone, and achieve high-quality development.
