One of the highlights of this reform is the integration of industrial development for high-quality outcomes. To foster a modern industrial system, the plan emphasizes the fusion of innovation, talents, data, funds, and policies.
Efforts will be made to enhance Huangpu's foundational support, including its land supply, fund allocation, and innovation chain construction. This will encourage innovation and entrepreneurship by market entities. Notably, the speed of project construction has significantly improved, exemplified by the expedited completion of projects such as the TCL CSOT (Guangzhou) project.
Furthermore, the plan is set to strengthen government service and open service supplies. Measures such as optimizing project coordination mechanisms, expediting approval processes, and facilitating investment and trade will also be implemented.
