Economic Observation: Industry rose by 9.7%, and the manufacturing market broke the "ceiling" of tra

2023-08-31 14:31, Shaoxing, August 1 (Reporter Xiang Jing) In the first half of this year, the national industrial added value increased by 3.8% year-on-year, and the "big manufacturing city" Zhejiang Shaoxing increased by 9.7% over the same period, exceeding the national average by 5.9 percentage points.

How did Shaoxing, which has long relied on traditional industries and is known as the "wine vat, sauce vat, and dye vat", get out of the "up line" of industrial economic operation in the first half of the year?

Over the years, Shaoxing has cultivated characteristic industries such as textiles, chemicals, motors, bearings, rice wine, and pearls, and has obvious block economic advantages. However, after the reform and opening up, Shaoxing's industrial development model, with traditional industries as the main body and county economy as the leading factor, encountered "growing pains" earlier in the country and entered the "painful period" of transformation and upgrading.

In 2003, the "Eight-Eight Strategy" proposed to "give full play to the advantages of Zhejiang's block-shaped characteristic industries, accelerate the construction of advanced manufacturing bases, and take a new road to industrialization", which pointed out the direction for Shaoxing's industrial economic development to break through the "ceiling".

Since then, Shaoxing has promoted measures such as "cross-domain integration" and "whole-domain governance" in the industrial sector, such as through enterprise grouping, mergers and reorganizations, expropriation and withdrawal, and other classified policies, allowing printing and dyeing and chemical enterprises in Yuecheng District to relocate to Keqiao District and Shangyu District. Today, all five major printing and dyeing groups have been put into production, and 18 large-scale chemical projects have all started construction. The new output value of printing and dyeing chemicals has reached nearly 100 billion yuan, and more than 10,000 acres of land have been vacated.

Breaking through the “ceiling” creates a “new space” for development. The local area is actively building four Zhejiang provincial-level new industrial platforms of "10,000 acres and 100 billion", including high-end biomedicine and advanced polymer materials, which have effectively reversed the original traditional industrial structure and are realizing the transformation from the "three vats" (wine vat, sauce vat, and dyeing vat) ) to "three pieces" (chips, pills, and cloth pieces). At present, the total industrial output value of the above four major platforms has exceeded 200 billion yuan.

When "emptying the cage to change the bird", Shaoxing is also exploring the "integration of data and reality" and moving towards the road of "Phoenix Nirvana".

Especially in 2023, the whole province of Zhejiang will anchor the "new coordinates" on the basis of the in-depth implementation of the "No. 1 Project" of the digital economy: the "No. 1 Development Project" for digital economic innovation and quality improvement. Promote the deep integration of the digital economy and the real economy and become a new driving force for the development of Shaoxing's industrial economy.

In Keqiao, Shaoxing, the "International Textile Capital", the printing and dyeing "industrial brain" has opened up the textile trade data of more than a hundred printing and dyeing companies, allowing companies to get out of their respective "information islands" and achieve collaboration between the upper, middle and lower reaches of the industry; among "China Bearings" Xinchang, Shaoxing Township, is connected to the bearing "industrial brain" of more than a thousand companies to analyze the industrial prosperity index and judge the industrial situation in real time, providing precise services for the entire production and sales process of the company...

The reporter learned that relying on the characteristics of block industries and the foundation of the industrial Internet platform, Shaoxing integrates data resources in subdivided industries, integrates the development of intelligent models and algorithm tools, and empowers the digital development of manufacturing companies and industrial clusters by "exchanging computing power for manpower."

Take the motor "Industrial Brain" as an example. As the first online "Industrial Brain" in Zhejiang Province, it has now radiated to 29 provinces and municipalities and 20 upstream and downstream industries across the country, serving more than 4,000 small and medium-sized enterprises, and overall improving the production of motor industry enterprises. The efficiency is more than 50%, and the production and operation cost is reduced by more than 25%.

"Currently, digital technology has become the biggest variable." Shi Huifang, deputy secretary of the Shaoxing Municipal Party Committee and mayor, recently publicly stated that Shaoxing will implement the "4151" plan to strengthen the city with advanced manufacturing and coordinate the promotion of digital industrialization and industrial digitization, such as promoting intelligent manufacturing. The five-year promotion action will promote the digital transformation of small and medium-sized enterprises to "learn from others", strive to create a national-level intelligent manufacturing demonstration zone, and give "digital wings" to the development of the manufacturing industry.

It's not just the "industrial brain + future factory" to help out, but also the service to help enterprises continue to "overweight".

For example, Shaoxing allocates 3 billion yuan in special funds for manufacturing development every year, and implements models such as "normal instant cashing throughout the year" and "advance cashing first and then settlement" for qualified enterprises, and is the first in Zhejiang Province to implement direct financial cashing of enterprise-related funds in 2022. 4.03 billion yuan will be cashed in to benefit enterprises this year, and 1.46 billion yuan has been cashed out in the first half of 2023.
