On the afternoon of Nov. 19, Li Ming, deputy Party secretary and head of Wujiang district, attended a press conference on the construction of the demonstration zone for ecological green development in the Yangtze River Delta region. He introduced the economic and social development of Wujiang District and the development plan for the demonstration zone. He said that the district will give full support to the construction of the pioneering area for the demonstration zone and strive to stay ahead of the curve and make great achievements in the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region.
As an important part of the demonstration zone, Wujiang is facing a major historical opportunity. The district has taken the initiative to shoulder the responsibility, strengthen collaboration and make fruitful efforts to facilitate the construction of the demonstration zone.
Li Ming pointed out that the construction of the demonstration zone has entered a new stage and Wujiang is faced with three primary tasks. The district needs to formulate a forward-looking development plan for the next 20 years, which will work out a systematic arrangement for land use and industrial development. It needs to expedite the promulgation of the promotion plan for the implementation of the national strategy with specific goals and the timetable for construction. Moreover, it needs to work together with Qingpu and Jiashan to break administrative barriers and actively explore innovative cooperation in fields like urban planning, land use, investment management and taxation and finance. It will learn from advanced experience of its counterparts to promote the regional integration.
Li Ming said that top priority will be given to the construction of the demonstration zone and the promotion of the regional integration. Efforts will be made to advance technological innovation and industrial upgrading, optimize business environment to attract more high-quality projects, and improve people’s living conditions and ecological environment.
Wujiang is a bellwether for Jiangsu’s private economy and is at the forefront of the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region. It will redouble its efforts to open a new stage of promoting the high-quality development and the implementation of the national strategy of the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region.
