Shanxi, China Ramps Up Innovation for High-quality Development

Shanxi province, China will step up technological innovation to pursue high-quality development featuring coordinated and green growth, common prosperity and further open up, while transforming and optimising its economic structure to rely less on natural resources-based growth. China recently issued a guideline to promote high-quality development in some inland provinces, where North China’s Shanxi is also located in.

The document calls for efforts to facilitate the major technological transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing sector, fostering the intelligent, green, service-oriented development of traditional sectors such as coal, construction and steel. China also put forward measures to promote the area’s economic growth, scientific and technological innovation, urbanisation, green development, opening-up and people’s wellbeing.

The document also urges Shanxi to accelerate the construction of the national pilot zone for overall reform for the transformation of the resource-based economy in Shanxi and comprehensive pilot reform for the energy revolution.

Accurately and comprehensively implementing the new development philosophy will pivot the province’s efforts to promote high-quality technological development and shore up that of the central region now and in the future.

Shanxi has made a master plan to implement the requirements of the document, detailing 22 major tasks to advance its high-quality development. The province will regard innovation as the top development driver to build a modern industrial system pillared by advanced manufacturing. The province will also give priority to balanced development between urban and rural areas. It will be committed to green development, steadily progressing carbon peaking and carbon neutrality efforts

Moreover, the province will bear in mind the importance of sharing high-quality development results with the public. It will advance the construction of province-wide tourism destination demonstrations, strengthen the full-aspect public services system for labour forces, and improve capabilities in basic public services, regional medical services and social governance.

The Director of the provincial development and reform commission of the province said to promote the development of the advanced manufacturing industry, Shanxi will conduct major technological transformation and upgrades in manufacturing. The province will encourage enterprises to increase investments in technological upgrades to scale up production and enhance profitability.

Shanxi will also encourage the research and development expansion of industrial enterprises above a designated size to promote the construction of high-end innovation platforms such as enterprise technology centres, manufacturing innovation centres and new types of R&D institutions. The province will step up industrial digitalisation, build more digital workshops and smart factories, and accelerate the development of intelligent mining and robot applications in coal mines.

To enhance the development foundation of the industrial sector, the province will establish and complete a list of key basic industrial technologies and products and will support enterprises to realise the industrial production of the first set of key technical equipment and the first application sphere of new materials.

The province will also promote the development of emerging industries and green production. It will increase efforts in energy-saving and ultralow carbon emissions transformation, as well as strengthen technological transformation focusing on the comprehensive utilisation of waste resources to promote related projects and facilitate high-quality development of the industry,

The province aims to make major breakthroughs in some key green and low-carbon technologies and achieve major goals for implementation of a series of reforms by 2023, to gradually establish the institutional mechanism for promoting clean and low-carbon energy, and form a clean, low-carbon, efficient, safe and modern energy system to provide support for Shanxi to pioneer high-quality development of China’s central region.
