In the early morning of June 25, the delegation traveled to the Jurong Island Chemical Industrial Park in Singapore. Jurong Island is an artificial island connected by seven reclamation methods in southwestern Singapore. It covers an area of 32 square kilometers and has hundreds of international companies on the island. Singapore Jurong Island Chemical Park is one of the world's three major refining centers, one of the world's top ten petrochemical centers, one of the world's largest petroleum refining centers, and a quotation center for Asian oil products. Jurong Island has now developed into three major industries, including petroleum raw materials, petrochemicals and special chemicals, especially high value-added special chemicals, which eventually form a world-class level from petroleum refining to production of high value-added downstream  products.The chemical park has become an example of site selection planning and management operations in the chemical industry. The successful experience of Jurong Island's petrochemical industry development includes: advanced petrochemical zone planning, reasonable planning and site selection, high industrial agglomeration, adequate supply of raw materials and strict management measures.

The Jurong Island Industrial Park is a Singapore chemical control zone that requires an advance application to board the island. As it was on Monday, there were a lot of people and vehicles passing through the security check-ups on the island. Fortunately, our delegation visited the VIP passage of the special car, and there was not much delay. However, the security personnel who carried the real guns still let us feel the seriousness of strict management.
