Updated: 2017-10-26

In accordance with the Implementation Opinions on Building a Talent Pool of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Wuhan Economic & Technological Development Zone (Hannan), referred to as the WHDZ, introduced specific measures in two of the city's programs for talented personnel to attract high-level expertise. 

The two programs are Wuhan's "City Partners" and "Elites of Auto Capital". The latter program consists of seven types - industrial leaders, angel investors, young entrepreneurs, excellent industrial talents, technical talents, special talents and talent scouts.
