 Top 10 GDP in the first half of the year: Chongqing surpasses Guangzhou and Nanjing enters the list for the first time


On July 27, the Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of statistics released data that in the first half of 2020, Guangzhou completed a GDP of 1096.829 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 2.7%. According to the data released by Chongqing Municipal Bureau of statistics, in the first half of the year, Chongqings GDP was 1120.983 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 0.8%. This means that Chongqing surpasses Guangzhou and ranks fourth in China.

Yi Xiaoguang, President of Chongqing Comprehensive Economic Research Institute, told the first finance and economics reporter that the main driving force for Chongqings economic recovery and growth is to promote investment projects, promote import and export, and make efforts on industrial level and structure. The high-tech industry, manufacturing industry, finance and logistics have rebounded significantly. Chongqings automobile manufacturing industry has also achieved rapid growth, and medium and high-end models have become the driving force for automobile production The driving force of industry recovery.

Moreover, in the first half of the year, the added value of high-tech manufacturing industry and strategic emerging manufacturing industry in Chongqing increased by 8.0% and 7.7% respectively year-on-year, 7.0 and 6.7 percentage points higher than that of the whole citys industries above Designated Size, 9.5 and 11.6 percentage points higher than those in the first quarter, accounting for 18.8% and 27.3% of the added value of industries above designated size.

Guangzhous export-oriented economy is relatively high, and the impact of the epidemic situation on international trade is relatively large. Yi Xiaoguang said that the degree of export-oriented in the eastern region is relatively high, which is subject to the European and American markets. On the one hand, it is affected by the industrial chain and supply chain, on the other hand, it is affected by the consumer market, so the impact is relatively large.

According to the data of Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of statistics, in the first half of the year, the added value of Guangzhous primary industry was 11.617 billion yuan, an increase of 4.4%; the added value of the secondary industry was 283.807 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 7.0%; the added value of the tertiary industry was 801405 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 0.8%. It can be seen that foreign demand has a great impact on the decline of Guangzhous secondary industry.

These are not the only changes in the list of the top 10 GDP cities.

Due to the impact of the epidemic, Wuhan suffered great losses. According to preliminary calculation, Wuhans GDP in the first half of the year decreased by 19.5% compared with the same period of last year. Although the official GDP data has not been released, it is estimated that Wuhan will compete with Tianjin in the top 10, and one of the two cities will eventually fall out of the top 10, because Nanjing is squeezed in.

In 2019, Tianjins GDP will be 141.0428 billion yuan, an increase of 4.8% over the previous year, and its ranking will drop from the sixth in 2018 to the tenth. Nanjing, the 11th largest city, has a GDP of 1403.015 billion yuan in 2019, an increase of 7.8% over the previous year. The difference is only 7.4 billion yuan.

In the first half of this year, Nanjing surpassed Tianjin. Data show that in the first half of the year, Tianjins GDP was 630.928 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 3.9%, while Nanjings GDP in the first half of the year was about 661.235 billion yuan. This means that Nanjing has entered the top ten.

New pattern of urban competition

In addition to the above changes in ranking, the trend of the gap between the top ten cities is also worthy of attention.

However, Suzhous strength is still strong and recovered rapidly in the second quarter. In the first half of this year, Chengdus GDP was 829.863 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 0.6%; Suzhous GDP was 905.024 billion yuan, with an actual growth of 0.8% year-on-year. Although Suzhou continues to lead Chengdu in the first half of the year, the gap between Chengdu and Suzhou has narrowed.

The attack of Chengdu and Chongqing shows the rise of inland cities in central and Western China and the economic circle of Chengdu and Chongqing. In fact, under the changing international situation, in addition to outstanding performance in economic resilience, the location advantages of inland cities are becoming more and more obvious in the new economic situation.

Especially under the impact of the epidemic situation, the import and export of the whole country is facing a downward trend, but the central and western regions are outstanding, and some provinces have even achieved high growth. Take Chengdu as an example, in the first half of this year, the total import and export volume reached 323.09 billion yuan, an increase of 23.5% year-on-year. The import volume and export volume increased by 25.5% and 21.9% respectively.

In June, the passenger throughput of Shuangliu Airport reached 3.237 million, which has continued to rise since March. The passenger throughput in the month and the first half of the year ranked first in China; the number of take-off and landing flights was 27000, ranking first in the world for two consecutive months. In addition, from January to June, 1810 international trains were put into operation in Chengdu, an increase of 40.9%, of which the China Europe train increased by 57.7%.

In particular, one belt, one road, the European Union and ASEAN, increased by 45.4%, 42.1% and 28.2% in the first half of the year in Chengdu. One belt, one road area, shows the advantages of the central and Western Central City in Chengdu.

At the 12th Lujiazui forum, which opened on June 18, Liu He, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, delivered a written speech to the forum. We are still under great pressure from the economic downturn, but the situation is gradually changing to a better direction. A new pattern of dual cycle development with domestic circulation as the main factor and international and domestic mutual promotion is forming, Liu he said

Yi Xiaoguang said that Chongqings GDP surpasses that of Guangzhou, which is not of great significance in the short term, and is all restorative growth. However, under the new pattern of dual cycle, the inland cities should be said to be organic in danger. To form a domestic circulation, it is necessary to narrow the regional gap, coordinate the development, narrow the differences between urban and rural areas, promote the integration of urban and rural areas, and promote the upgrading of industrial level. Only then can inland cities have space and power. In one belt, one road is to expand domestic cooperation, and to expand the cooperation between regions, and to form a unified market and stimulate development space. Yi Xiaoguang will deepen the reform and increase domestic power, including the institutional opening of one belt and one road and the intensification of the market players initiative. The two domestic cycle is the main goal of the domestic cycle. To enhance the expectation of development. Source of this article: Guo Chenqi, editor in charge of first finance and Economics_ NBJ9931
