Outlook of the next five years and Suggestions for 2012 .

The next five years will be golden period for our scientific development, a critical time for transformation and upgrading and reform deepening, and an opportunity for spanning development. Given the domestic and international situations, we are facing both unprecedented opportunities and ordeal challenges. With the dramatic changes in international economy, the trend of domestic economic and social development going well in the long term remains unchanged, and efforts to construct the world-class urban agglomeration in Pearl River Delta stepped up. Zhongshan city has continually strengthened the good foundation accumulated over the years, creating favorable conditions for accelerating development. Meanwhile, amid rigorous and complex international conditions, rising instabilities and uncertainties of global economic recovery, pressures of downward domestic economic growth and upward commodity prices and bolstered competition in Pearl River Delta, Zhongshan is faced with lack of internal motivation in economic growth and greater challenges in accelerating our development.

We should always be prepared for any eventualities and opportunities, strengthen strategic planning, enhance handling ability, take the initiative, and promote the development for longer term, higher standard and better quality. In the coming five years, we will integrate our thoughts and actions into the decision and deployment at the 13th Zhongshan Municipal Party Congress, correctly balance the relationships between the speed of development and transformation and upgrading, between economic construction and social construction, between enriching people and building the city, between industries and urban environment, between development and environmental protection, between co-establishing and sharing, making the city more prosperous and beautiful, more harmonious and happy.

The year of 2012 is the first year of the work of new government, and it is pivotal for us to fulfill the task of the “four-year development” of The Outline of the Plan for the Reform and Development of the Pearl River Delta (2008-2020). We need to thoroughly implement the guiding principle of the Central Economic Working Conference, the deployment of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, and the spirit of the Thirteenth Municipal Party Congress. We should steadfastly take scientific development as the theme and accelerating transformation of the economic development mode as the main thread, with speeding up transformation and upgrading, the development of happy and beautiful Zhongshan as the core. We center on the key points of steady growth, promoting transformation, strengthening foundation, optimizing environment, improving harmony, benefiting people’s livelihood to develop with secure stability and more effective progress.

The natural population growth rate should stay within 7‰. Energy conservation and emission reduction index should meet the issued restrictive annual plan of the province.

To achieve the above-mentioned objectives in 2012, the followings are important:

1. Maintaining steady, healthy and sustainable development of the economy

Improving quality and benefit of development. We should persevere in the development orientation of “low energy consumption, low area occupation, fine workers, more innovations, high profits, friendly ecology and favoring residents”. The funds of the municipal financial budget in support of industries will add up to 0.5 billion yuan. We need to develop substantial economy and enhance the inclusiveness of development. In addition, we seek to make the per capita GDP rise by 10% whilst the output value of high-tech products accounting for 40% of the total output value of industrial enterprises above designated scale. The index of quality benefits, such as the overall labor productivity rate, the added value of unit construction land etc, were improved noticeably. The overall plans of the project arrangement and production factors which include index of land, land storage, capacity of environment, power supply, supportive funds, should be made scientifically. We should use land economically and intensively aiming at making best use of idle land while at the same time additional index of land should link up with the effect of land use. The “three old renovation” (renovation of old towns, old villages and old factories) will be implemented in 6666.7 hectare land in this year in order to accomplish the confirmation and approval procedures of the used land.

Implementing the “three-100 strategy” deeply. We must accelarate the transformation and upgrading of top 100 foreign-funded and supplied material processing enterprises whilst doing our utmost to strengthen the domestic-funded 100 enterprises, and attract top 100 enterprises to settle down in Zhongshan. We should enhance trade and investment promotion while at the same time giving an impetus to the projects of government enterprises, non-governmental enterprises and Fortune Global 500 contracted on March 28th trade fair to settle down. On the other hand, the headquarters economy policy should be implemented to support local enterprises and attract enterprises in other cities to establish headquarters in Zhongshan. We need to encourage the merger and restructuring of quality companies and develop growing and science-based SMEs. We should foster brand images, cultivate famous brands and labels into leading ones, and forge more enterprises with annual output values above 1 billion yuan or tens of billion yuan, with industrial added value up by 12%.

Developing economic coordination zone actively. According to the principles of the “municipal overall planning, township cooperating, balanced interest and integral development”, we need to set up the municipal economic coordination zone as pilot, improve benefit allocation mechanisms like taxation increment sharing, forge new platform for loading cutting-edge projects, enhance the develoment of quality new zones, upgrade professional towns into new zones, propell the development of the administrative area economy to economic area economy. Strengthing the optimization and integration of industrial parks, we should seek to build the modern TCM city of South China and National Health Technology Park so as to drive the double transfer of industries and labour forces. `

Expanding investment to boost consumption. We should increase investment, and optimize the investment pattern whilst arranging 126 municipal key projects and planning the investment of 21.2 billion yuan this year. We should also invest more to support those enterprises that embrace proprietary intellectual property rights and brands, seek to get the support from the superior financial and credit funds and meanwhile actively expand non-governmental investment. It is crucial for us to support the enterprises to expand domestic market, to carry out the sales of Zhongshan products line nationwide, to explore and establish the economic and trade cooperation platforms outside Guangdong Province and to advance comprehensive benefits of the professional exhibition. Facilitating the pulling force of consumption on economic growth is conducive to developing new types of consumption such as green, healthy, online shopping. The commercial development of inter-city rail station should be accelerated and the establishment of Xingzhong Square, Fuhua and Yihua business circles should be strongly carried out as well. What we really need to do is to implement the vegetable basket project and speed up the three constructions like the construction of the fair-price shop. We need to promote the steady and healthy development of the real estate market, maintain the order of market price, reinforce the establishment of social credit and construct a convenient and worry-free consumption environment.

Stabilizing export and encouraging import. We should increase the reclaiming depth of export market, reverse the weak condition against the increase of Euramerican trade, develop market segment of Hong Kong and European Union, explore emerging markets of ASEAN, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Russia, set up credit financing platform of foreign trade enterprises and form a sound export credit risk security mechanism while at the same time improving the import policy and guiding enterprises that should focus on enlarging the technology and product imports listed in the province-encouraged catalogue. To optimize the environment of port customs clearance, we should support the bonded logistics center to declare the comprehensive bonded area and prepare for the early warning and response work of international trade barriers. We should be in support of transformation and upgrading of the foreign trade enterprises whilst implementing 8 series and 30 supportive policies and enhancing the international competitiveness of Zhongshan products.

2. Speeding up the transformation and upgrading of industries

Reforming and enhancing the advantages of traditional industries. We should deeply carrying out plans including the prosperity of traditional industries, the renovation of professional towns, the strengthening of industrial cluster and also promoting some industries including lighting, household appliances, hardware locksets, leisure clothes, rosewood furniture etc, to extend to high value-added links. Some demonstration sites of provincial industries such as Guangdong Lighting International Purchasing Center and Xiaolan Industrial Design Base should be established. We should give support to a number of industrial clusters setting up the price index whilst seizing the pricing rights of the enterprises. The traditional industries should be reformed with the utilization of information technology, the e-commerce platform of the small household appliances should be set up in Huangpu town, and the technology application pilot of the Internet of Things should be carried out with the refined management of enterprises. Meanwhile, we should build quality city, implement criterion strategy that boasts municipal science and technology whilst encourage enterprises to participate in drafting international standards and also formulating national standards.

Developing advanced manufacturing industry vigorously. We should propel the high- end development of manufacturing industry, and also give priority to cultivating manufacturing industries including information industry, shipbuilding, marine engineering, electrical elevator, heavy castings, manufacturing equipments, etc. The establishment of 15 key projects consisting of China State Shipbuilding Corporation' Zhongshan Base, China Southern Engineering Equipment Corporation, Thyssen Elevators, Monfongs Textile Dyeing Machinery etc, should be accelerated at full blast. We seek to accomplish the output value of coastal equipment manufacturing base beyond tens of billion yuan within this year and the added value of the advanced manufacturing industry accounting for 33.9% of that of industrial enterprises above the designated size.

Cultivating and developing the emerging industries of strategic importance. We should drive the scale development of emerging industries and focus on cultivating some industries including new energy, new light source, cutting-edge information technology, health and medicine, etc. Meanwhile, we should also accelerate the establishment of large-scale wind turbine industrial base, new energy vehicle driving system industrial base and high power LED packaging projects, coordinately with the implementation of applying projects such as New Energy Vehicles, Semiconductor Illumination, Smart Grid, Solar PV, to set up the green lighting model city. We should promote the completion of National Software Service Demonstration Base and Compass Navigation Satellite Industrial Base.

Speeding up the development of modern service industry. The accumulative development of service industry should be motivated, the development space of service should be broadened, and the key accumulative areas, projects, and the establishment of enterprises should be accelerated with the consolidation of service statistics. It is vital to give priority to the cultivation of local finance, information service, industrial design, modern logistics and business exhibition, etc. While at the same time, we need to promote the brand and scale management of commercial catering and community service. The establishment of some key projects should be accelerated such as Health Care Information Technology Area of Guangdong Province, Service Innovation Area of Household Appliances of South China, Zhongshan International Financial Center, Xiaolan Financial Tower, Integrated Service Area of Lighting Industry, Shiyu UNIS Industrial Park, Suning Logistics whilst we should enhance the radiation capacity of some accumulative areas covering the CBD of Eastern District, the pilot zone for service comprehensive reforms of Western District, Shiqi comprehensive pilot site, software and digital household incubation industrial base of Guangdong, etc. The added value of service increases by 12%, occupying 43% of the total output value.

Developing tourism actively. We should speed up the establishment of Cuiheng international tourism town into one that boasts lingnan style and the amorous feelings of China. Starting the phase II construction of Qijiang Cruise is for the purpose of enriching its connotation with the establishment of some key projects such as flourishing Yacht Club, and the reform of Hot Spring Hotel. We will do our utmost to hold Lingnan Tourism & Culture Festival, Xiaolan Chrysanthemum Festival, Shiqi Recreational Travel Festival, etc. while at the same time promoting unique tourism such as industrial tourism, Xiangshan gourmet food, health fitness and yacht leisure, and forging a regional self-driving tour base.

Developing modern agriculture solidly. Modern agriculture has been earmarked officially 0.31 billion yuan to develop conservative, efficient, and ecological agriculture. Promoting the coalescence between agriculture and modern logistics, e-commerse and sightseeing tour can enhance the connotation of the demonstration region of modern agriculture. In addition, we join hands with outer cities to establish agricultural production bases. We should improve the facility standards of agricultural foundation and the level of mechanization in agriculture whilst strengthening the capacity of agriculture against natural calamities and output benefits. We also need to build 195 kilometers of main farm roads with hard bottom and 267 hectares of high standard farmland with the renovation of 40 unsafe bridges. We need to strictly supervise the quality management of agricultural products whilst intensifying efforts to prevent and control animal and plant epidemic diseases.

3. Increasing the level of urbanization

Striving for constructing an ideal city. We will build up the concept of green, smart, inclusive and human-centered development, and insist on civilized, livable, endurable and sustainable new urban development pattern. According to the principle of precise city positioning and management, a plan on urbanization development will be drafted and a batch of new urban areas, livable communities, culture districts and environment-friendly buildings will be constructed.
