 Why did Ningbo lose the new front line when it was sitting in the Oriental port?


According to the new first tier cities Research Institute, this year is the fifth year of the list release, taking five aspects of business resource concentration, urban hub, urban peoples activity, lifestyle diversity and future plasticity as the first level dimensions to assess the development of the city in 2019. This years index introduces the factor of peoples choice, and the attraction of population has become an important factor.

Zhuo Yongliang, director of the new economy research center of the Yangtze River Delta Research Institute of Tsinghua University and former director of the development and Reform Research Institute of Zhejiang Province, told the first financial reporter that there is a comprehensive strength in Ningbo, but we should recognize our own shortcomings. Why does Hefei and Foshan surpass it? Hefei is the capital city of Anhui Province. As a central city, it has a rapid development momentum in recent years. Foshan benefits from the advantages brought by the urbanization of Guangfo. In recent years, the development of Ningbo is relatively slow.

According to the data of Ningbo Municipal Bureau of statistics, in 2019, Ningbo achieved a GDP of 1198510 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 6.8%. From the perspective of economic aggregate, after joining the GDP trillion club for the first time in 2018, Ningbo made further progress in 2019, and achieved the 12th place in the national total urban GDP.

Ningbo Zhoushan Port

Zhoushan port of Ningbo, which has the largest cargo throughput in the world, has developed rapidly in the past few decades. However, in the past decade after 2010, Ningbos backward strength is not good. In 2019, the GDP growth rate is only the average level of Zhejiang Province (6.8%). According to the Research of zhuyongliang, the annual average growth rate from 2010 to 2019 is 7.8%, slower than that of Hangzhou, Wenzhou, Jiaxing and Huzhou.

What are the possible problems in this failure? Lets first look at a group of comparative data between Ningbo and Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province.

According to official data, in 2019, the added value of industries above Designated Size in Ningbo reached 399.15 billion yuan, an increase of 6.4% year on year; the added value of industries above Designated Size in Hangzhou was 353.1 billion yuan.

From the data comparison, Ningbos industry is stronger than Hangzhous, but its added value of service industry is only one-half of Hangzhous. In 2019, the added value of service industry in Hangzhou exceeded trillion yuan, reaching 1017.2 billion yuan, contributing 72.9% to GDP growth. The added value of Ningbos tertiary industry is 587.99 billion yuan, accounting for 49.1% of GDP.

Ningbo should return to the new front line from the second tier cities. In addition to maintaining the original advantages of port industry, the focus should be on the service industry. According to Zhuo Yongliang, comparing Hangzhous data, Ningbos service industry is an obvious short board.

He believed that Ningbos economy has always been on the road of strong manufacturing and foreign trade. After 2000, it still focused on the port industry, and the service industry did not catch up. The port based business and finance, the service industry around trade and import and export, did not develop, and missed a wave of opportunities.

Zhoushan port of Ningbo is the advantage of Ningbo, and the key to the development of port city is what to put in the wine bottle. Zhuo Yongliang believes that the key for Ningbo to catch up is to plan with overall thinking and develop all-round service industry with port as carrier. In addition to producer services, there is also a huge space for the development of services around import and export trade, ocean transportation, finance and so on.

Looking at the Yangtze River Delta, how should Ningbo be positioned? Zhuo Yongliangs suggestion is to form a port Twin Star pattern with Shanghai based on the port advantages, develop port business, import and export, entrepot trade services in the city cluster and radiate the whole area. As one of the important foreign gateway cities, Ningbo should participate in the global industrial division more closely.

At the same time, Ningbo should develop high-end manufacturing industry and enhance the vitality of private enterprises. Said Zhuo Yongliang.

Ningbo has Cixi, Yuyao and other counties under its jurisdiction, ranking first among the top 100 counties in the country for many years. Zhuo Yongliang said that Ningbo should rely on its port advantages and target Shenzhen and Hangzhou to build Ningbo into the second capital of private enterprises in China. In the development of high-end manufacturing industry, first, it should enhance the vitality of private enterprises. Second, Ningbo municipal government should fully mobilize the enthusiasm of the county governments under its jurisdiction to solve it We need to do a good job in transforming the service-oriented government.

In addition, Ningbo is also deficient in the number of colleges and universities and urban construction, with a large space for growth.

In recent years, Ningbo has realized its shortcomings and stepped up its efforts to remedy them. According to Ningbo daily, in recent years, Ningbo has been actively adjusting its economic structure. Its export dependence has declined from 80% at the peak to about 50% at present. A number of modern service industries, such as port and waterway logistics, leisure tourism, finance and insurance, have sprung up rapidly. New consumption represented by online shopping and cross-border e-commerce has continued to develop, and the troika has become more balanced. In 2019, the contribution rate of service industry to the citys economic growth increased to 54.2%, reaching a record high.

This years report on the work of Ningbos government said that it was necessary to speed up the development of modern services, implement the 3433 action to double the development of the service industry, and increase the added value of the service industry by more than 7%. Including supporting Ningbo Zhoushan port to accelerate the construction of a world-class strong port, vigorously cultivating high-end shipping services such as shipping big data, shipping finance, maritime legal services, improving the multimodal transport network system, promoting the deep integration of port industry and city, and expanding the port economic circle; building a number of functional platforms around port logistics, international trade, modern finance and other fields, and promoting the development of 10 The provincial modern service industry cluster area gathers a group of headquarters enterprises, striving to add more than 140 headquarters enterprises and cultivate more than 100 leading service enterprises. Strive for the national policy support for the comprehensive pilot area of insurance innovation, build an upgraded version of the pilot area, and land it in the securities legal person institution; vigorously develop the productive service industries such as business services, technology and software information, and promote the development of leisure tourism, health care, family services and other life services. In terms of the construction of the metropolitan area, Ningbo has actively integrated into the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta, accelerated the integration of Hangzhou, Shaoxing, Ningbo and Ningbo, substantially launched the construction of the Yongzhou cooperation zone, strengthened cooperation with Taizhou, and enhanced the radiation driving capacity of the metropolitan area of Ningbo. On May 6, Ningbo Municipal Public Security Bureau issued the announcement on Soliciting Opinions and suggestions on relaxing the settlement conditions of our city in an all-round way and proposed that Ningbo would give Zhoushan household registration personnel the treatment of moving their household registration to the same city. Zhoushan urban household registration is equal to Ningbo urban household registration, and Zhoushan county and city household registration is equal to Ningbo county and city household registration.
