Jiangsu should build a modern science center with its own characteristics, said Ruan Renliang, member of CPPCC Jiangsu Provincial Committee and Vice President of Jiangsu Provincial Association of Science and Technology, said at the fifth group meeting of the 11th CPPCC Jiangsu Provincial Committee on the afternoon of Feb 6. He said that Jiangsu is a province of science and technology, but the construction of science and technology venues falls behind many other provinces.

He suggested that the construction project can be conducted under the name of Jiangsu Science Center and Jiangsu Provincial Association of Science and Technology can serve as the planner. The main building area is 80,000 square meters and auxiliary supporting construction area is 20,000 square meters. The total investment budget is 1.5 billion yuan ($218 million) excluding land costs. The provincial government should coordinate the construction and resources. According to the three-year construction period, the provincial finance department should provide special project funding of around 500 million yuan ($73 million). The planning and design and related preparatory work are expected to be completed by the end of 2017, the infrastructure and renovation work should be completed by the end of 2018 and the center should be open to the public by the end of 2019.
