President Fang Fei introduced the development trilogy of the provincial government, comprised of the establishment of Chang-Ji demonstration zone of industrial innovation and development, the declaration of state-level Changchun northeast new zone, and the construction of free trade pilot zone. He hopes that Vice President Li Guanghui will provide guidance on the objective, direction, positioning, mode, and method of Chang-Ji New Zone, in order to promote consistency with national strategies and to reflect local initiative and characteristics.
Vice President Li Guanghui said that the new zone should be positioned on the basis of an open and innovated system. He communicated with us about the project’s current status, ideas, details and extent. When analyzing current national strategies, he said that the most distinctive feature of the new round of reform and opening-up is the transition of China’s economic development mode. The Eighteenth National Congress called for building a win-win open system. From that point of view, China’s economy has transferred from export-orientated economy into an under-construction open economic system, of which the fiercest characteristic is the establishment of an industrial support and industrial chain of economic development with Chinese characteristics. This mode is developed from the original export-led economy into an equal attention on both export and import, which means that the utilization of foreign capital and the investment in foreign country are equally important.
He said that under the background of building China’s open economic system, the positioning of Chang-Ji New Zone should follow the guidance of national strategies, combining local characteristics and advantages of Jilin Province, in order to build a system which provides driving force. The leading industries of the New Zone must be analyzed before being positioned. The establishment of industrial system is crucial to Jilin’s development in the new round of reform and opening-up. A development path led by openness, supported by industrial system, and pushed by talent innovation must be paved.
In the following discussion, the participants also discussed establishment, implement scheme and regional logistics of the industrial platforms of photoelectric intelligence, logistics, Asia-Pacific agricultural and food safety, aviation, China-Europe technology, and sports, to eradicate the intrinsic barriers in the system, and to truly build a new comprehensive open system.
In the last part of the meeting, this cooperation’s scope, time schedule, content depth and other technical aspects are determined. The follow-up work will commence soon.
