Hefei, the capital city of Anhui province, was approved by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology as a model pilot city for “Made in China 2025” plan focusing on promoting manufacturing, said Hefei Development and Reform Commission on June 13th, 2017.
Adhering to the strategy of “developing city based on industry”, Hefei has recently built an advanced manufacturing system dominated by high-tech industry and traditional superior industry. Leading by innovative manufacturing, the socialist market economy and industrial structure have been improved constantly. In February 2016, the pilot work was officially launched in China, and new manufacturing cities and districts were expected to be constructed in three to five years.
In the first half of 2017, Hefei was highly appraised by National Manufacturing Strategy Advisory Committee for its pilot work. With 37 industries, 200 industrial sectors and more than 2,000 industrial commodities, Hefei has become an advanced manufacturing industrial base. Last year, the total industrial output value exceeded one trillion yuan. In the next three year, Hefei will strive to become a manufacturing city with great international influence.
