Like Bushan Valley-Macau Modern Ecological Agriculture Industrial Park, more and more Bay enterprises have entered Guangxi in recent years.
According to statistics, in 2020, there will be more than 1,050 investment contract projects in the "Gulf Enterprise Entering Guangxi", with a total investment of more than 1.1 trillion yuan, of which more than 600 projects have been started, with a total investment of more than 520 billion yuan.
Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) Co., Ltd. is the representative of Gulf enterprises entering Guangxi in 2020.
The chairman of the company, Zhang Yin, said in an interview with a reporter from Chinanews.com that the company will build an integrated forestry, pulp and paper production base in the Tieshan port area of Beihai.
After the factory is completed and put into operation, the production capacity is expected to be more than 5 million tons, and the output value is expected to be 30.2 billion yuan.
Zhang Yin said that Guangxi is at the forefront of China's opening up to ASEAN, and investing in Guangxi will help Nine Dragons Paper to further radiate the Southeast Asian market.
Yang Chunting, director of the Investment Promotion Bureau of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said that Guangxi is an important production base for non-ferrous metals, automobiles and diesel engines and a commercial timber production base in China.
In key industries such as electronic information, machinery, and metallurgy, Guangxi has a solid foundation and huge potential for cooperation with Gulf enterprises.
In addition, there is a gradual gap between Guangxi and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The introduction of advanced enterprises in the Greater Bay Area will provide Guangxi with a broad space for high-quality economic development and industrial transformation and upgrading.
Yao Hua, director of the Institute of Sociology of the Guangxi Academy of Social Sciences, said that Guangxi is not only an important destination for the transfer of industries in the Greater Bay Area, but also an important window for enterprises in the Greater Bay Area to access the ASEAN market. The complementarity of industries and resources between the two sides determines a huge Cooperation space.
In addition to investing in the agricultural industry and paper industry, emerging industries such as the electronics industry and high-tech enterprises have also entered Guangxi.
Greater Bay Area companies such as Huawei and BYD have settled in Guilin, and China Smart City Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. has settled in Nanning.
Yang Chunting said that Guangxi focuses on introducing the "three new" industries such as big health, big data, big logistics, new manufacturing, new materials, and new energy. The implementation of a series of emerging industry projects will inject new momentum into the high-quality development of Guangxi.
