Construction of high-end boarding houses, which are expected to accommodate 5,000 employees at an industrial park in the Pingtan Comprehensive Pilot Zone, Fujian, broke ground on Tuesday, May 9.

The housing project, Xieli Jingxiu City, is part of an investment by Xieli Technology Industrial Park launched by Xieli Group Ltd, a comprehensive enterprise that operates in architectural ceramics, artware, microelectronics and real estate.

With an investment of 5.7 billion yuan ($926 million), the industrial park will focus on electronic circuit packaging, research and production of 6-inch and 8-inch wafers.

The boarding houses will be able to accommodate more than 200 mid-level executives of Xieli (Pingtan) Technology Ltd Co this year. After its completion in 2014, they will house roughly 5,000 employees in the park.

"The groundbreaking of the (boarding houses) project symbolizes the acceleration of our overall plan. It will make our employees more comfortable working and living here," said Li Mingfu, general manager of Xieli Group.

The improvement of infrastructure will help lure more talent, according to Li.

"The construction of high-end boarding houses creates better conditions for talent recruitment. With more preferential policies from the Pingtan administrative committee to support development of high-tech industries, it will play a bigger role in the growth of the park and all of Pingtan," he added.
