In recent years, CixiCountyhas made great efforts to promote the construction of the high-energy industrial platforms and accelerate the replacement of old growth drivers by new ones. “The industrial platforms have become the powerful engines to the economic development, the important carrier for opening-up and the testing field for systematic reforms in Cixi county, which will promote the county’s economy to step on a high-quality development road.” said a person in charge from Cixi County Party Committee. Recently, the County-level Economy Research Center of the CCID Consulting released the 2019 research report on the high-quality development index of the county-level economy in China and the 2019 list of China’s Top 100 Counties, in which Cixi County ranks No.7, the only one from Zhejiang Province among the top ten.
Just as Ningbo is developing its “246” billion and trillion-level industrial clusters, Cixi County is building its “10,000 mu and 100 trillion” industrial platform at the coastal economic development zone, as well as accelerating the construction of such five 10 billion-level industrial platforms as the high-tech industrial development zone, the Hangzhou Bay Innovative Economic Zone, the modern agricultural development
zone, the Zhouxiang Town industrial zone, and the Guanhaiwei Town industrial zone, to provide support for the 100 billion and 10 billion-level industries like the intelligent household appliances manufacturing.
“The intelligent transformation of the leading enterprises of the industrial platforms will drive the further growth of such traditional industries as the household appliances, the mechanical basic parts and the auto parts in our country.” said a person in charge from Cixi County Economic and Information Technology Bureau. The demonstration of intelligent transformation is now penetrating to such fields as small household appliances, bearings, and non-stick pans.
Based on the industrial platforms, the county has built up five specialized industrial parks in aerospace, civil-military integration, new materials, the Sino-Czech cooperation, and life & health respectively, and accelerated the development of such emerging industries as life & health, new materials and high-end equipment.
The latest statistics show that in the first half of this year, the industrial added value of the large-scale enterprises in the county stood at 16.26 billion yuan, up by 7.5% over the same period of last year. the industrial profit of the large-scale enterprises stood at 3.755 billion yuan, up by 26.9%, and the output value of the new products of the large-scale enterprises reached 27.072 billion yuan, up by 19.3%
