After Ningbo became a city independently listed in the national plan

Since 1984 when Ningbo opened further to the outside world, Ningbo became attractive to investors home and abroad. However, the backward infrastructure of the city became a severe restriction to the further opening of the city. To solve this problem, Ge Hongsheng, then Secretary of Ningbo Municipal Party Committee, decided that Ningbo should take measures so that the city could be listed as a city independently listed in the national plan. A city independently listed in the national plan is one that has provincial-level administration and its development is in independently the country's plan but not in the plan of the province.

At a meeting in Dahua Hotel of Hangzhou in September 1986, the State Council's coordinating group on the economy of Ningbo, Zhejiang Province and Ningbo City agreed that Ningbo should apply to be a city independently listed in the national plan. On November 10 in the same year, Zhejiang Provincial Government submitted the application to the central government, for Ningbo to be listed as such a city.

On February 24, 1987, the State Council made the reply that Ningbo be independently listed in the national plan, that the city have the provincial-level administrative power in economy, and that the city should further carry out the pilot economic system reform. In June 1987, Zhejiang Provincial Government made the decision that as a city independently listed in the national plan, from the next month on, Ningbo should be independently listed in finance, foreign capita and foreign economy. In 1988 the city became officially independently listed.
