Guangzhou's Huangpu district will strive for a growth rate of around 10 percent in regional GDP and more than 20 percent in fixed-asset investments this year.
The goal of making a solid start to the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25) was proposed at a mobilization meeting on Feb 19.
Huangpu hosts a mobilization meeting on Feb 19 to make a solid start to the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25).
Entering this new era, the district will vigorously develop its manufacturing industry. It is to cultivate a 300-billion-yuan ($46-billion) new-generation information technology industrial cluster, two 200-billion-yuan industrial clusters related to automobile manufacturing and new materials, and four 100-billion-yuan industrial clusters pertaining to green energy, biological technology, high-end equipment and healthy foods. Its industrial output value is expected to have an annual growth of more than 100 billion yuan.
The conference also proposed that Huangpu should complete its old village demolition by the end of 2021. The transformation of 66 major old villages will make space for nearly 30 million square meters of industrial carriers. A host of buildings will be built to facilitate a high-end modern service sector.
In addition, Huangpu will further its efforts in terms of mastering core technologies in frontier areas such as brain-to-machine fusion, integrated circuits, nanotechnology, biosafety, stem cells, and genes during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, by setting up or bringing in research institutions and industrial laboratories.
