Following the first-tier cities, Chongqing and Suzhou exceed RMB 2 trillion

  Statistics show that in 2020, the total GDP of 15 new first-tier cities will reach 20,716.422 billion yuan, accounting for about 20.4% of the country.

  Among the 15 cities, 13 cities have a GDP exceeding one trillion yuan, and two cities exceed 2 trillion yuan, namely Chongqing and Suzhou.

Among them, Chongqing ranked first in the new first-tier cities with 2500.279 billion yuan.

Among all the cities in the country, Chongqing's GDP is second only to the four first-tier cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, ranking fifth.

  The total GDP of Chongqing in 2020 is only 1.632 billion yuan less than that of Guangzhou, the fourth-tier first-tier city. In the future, the total GDP of Chongqing is likely to exceed Guangzhou and enter the top four ranks.

  Currently, Chongqing is still accelerating the pace of industrialization and urbanization.

Statistics show that in 2020, the added value of the city's industrial enterprises above designated size will increase by 5.8% over the previous year.

Divided into three categories, the value added of the mining industry decreased by 0.6% over the previous year, the manufacturing industry increased by 6.4%, and the electricity, heat, gas and water production and supply industries increased by 2.1%.

The eight pillar industries continued to recover. The automobile, electronics, and materials industries greatly contributed to the city’s industrial growth. The added value increased by 10.1%, 13.9% and 7.1% respectively over the previous year; the equipment, medicine, consumer goods and energy industries increased by 2.9% respectively. , 4.5%, 0.8% and 0.9%.

  Peng Peng, executive chairman of the Guangdong Provincial Institutional Reform Research Association, analyzed by China Business News that Chongqing’s population and geographic area are much larger than that of Guangzhou. Under the new dual-cycle development pattern, the advantages will be more obvious. The population has to move to cities and towns, which will have a great pulling effect on infrastructure construction and real estate.

There is a high probability that the total GDP in the future will exceed Guangzhou.

  After Chongqing, Suzhou’s GDP in 2020 was 2017.05 billion yuan, an increase of 3.4% over the previous year at comparable prices. The total GDP ranks second among the new first-tier cities and sixth among all cities in the country.

It is worth noting that Suzhou is also the only ordinary prefecture-level city among the 6 cities that have broken through the 2 trillion yuan mark, and it is also known as the "best prefecture-level city".

  Statistics show that last year, Suzhou's general public budget revenue reached 230.3 billion yuan, an increase of 3.7% over the previous year, making it the fourth largest city in the country for the first time.

During the year, 29 domestic and overseas listed companies were newly added, including 25 domestic A-share listed companies; the cumulative number of domestic and overseas listed companies reached 181, including 144 domestic A-share listed companies, ranking fifth in the country.

  Associate Professor Ding Changfa of the Department of Economics of Xiamen University analyzed by China Business News that Suzhou is backed by Shanghai, and “the big tree is good for the cool”. The spillover effect in Shanghai is particularly obvious. The strong scientific and educational resources and modern service industry promote the transformation and upgrading of Suzhou.

  The data shows that in 2020, the number of declarations, certifications, net additions and effective numbers of high-tech enterprises in Suzhou reached a record high. At the end of the year, there were 9,772 effective high-tech enterprises, approaching 10,000, and continued to rank fifth in the country, second only to Four first-tier cities in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

  Chengdu ranks third in the new first-tier cities with a GDP of 1.77 trillion yuan.

In recent years, Chengdu's high-tech industries have developed rapidly.

According to previous reports from the Chengdu media, in 2020, Chengdu is expected to have a net increase of more than 1,900 high-tech enterprises, an increase of more than 40%, and the total is expected to exceed 6,100; at the same time, the annual revenue of high-tech industries is expected to exceed 1 trillion yuan.

  Hangzhou is ranked fourth.

After the epidemic, Hangzhou's digital economy has accelerated and the inflow of talent has accelerated.

Data from the Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Statistics show that in 2020, the city’s digital economy core industries will achieve an added value of 429 billion yuan, an increase of 13.3%, which is 9.4 percentage points higher than the GDP growth rate, accounting for 26.6% of GDP, an increase of 1.9 points from the previous year.

The artificial intelligence industry continued to grow, achieving an added value of 34 billion yuan, an increase of 8.2%.

  This year's Hangzhou Municipal Government Work Report shows that in 2020, Hangzhou's attraction to outstanding talents will continue to increase.

In 2020, Hangzhou will newly recruit 436,000 college students under the age of 35 in 2020, and the net talent inflow rate will continue to rank first in the country.

13 cities exceed one trillion yuan, Dongguan is near the door

  Wuhan, which has been most affected by the epidemic, saw its GDP in 2020 fall by 4.7% year-on-year, ranking fifth after Hangzhou among the new first-tier cities.

  Nanjing is a typical example of the rise of a powerful provincial capital in recent years.

As one of the five largest cities with the highest concentration of higher education resources in China, Nanjing's comprehensive strength in science and education is second only to Beijing and Shanghai, ranking third in the country, and has a number of powerful universities such as Nanjing University and Southeast University.

In recent years, Nanjing has given full play to its abundant advantages in science and education resources, vigorously build a famous science and technology city, and develop emerging industries.

In 2020, the total GDP of Nanjing will enter the top ten for the first time among all cities.

  Despite being surpassed by Nanjing, Tianjin's GDP in 2020 will exceed 1.4 trillion yuan, which is not a big gap with Nanjing.

The three cities of Qingdao, Changsha and Zhengzhou have exceeded 1.2 trillion yuan, and the gap between them is also very tight.

  As a big manufacturing city, Foshan has entered the trillion-yuan mark in 2019, and will continue to successfully relegation in 2020 and stay in the trillion-yuan club.

Hefei and Xi'an, the two powerful provincial capital cities, will be the first trillion-dollar clubs in 2020.

Among them, Xi'an became the first trillion-yuan city in the northwestern region.

  In addition to Hefei and Xi'an, among the 15 new first-tier cities in 2020, 13 have already entered the trillion-dollar club, and only Dongguan and Shenyang have not yet been shortlisted.

Among them, Dongguan, as an important reserve army for the trillion-yuan club city, will temporarily "strand" in 2020.

  Hu Gang, president of the South China Urban Research Association and professor of Jinan University, analyzed China Business News that in 2020, Dongguan will be greatly impacted by the export-oriented economy.

Affected by the epidemic, a large number of migrant workers have difficulty returning to work in the first quarter of 2020, and many orders cannot be completed; exports have been blocked again after April.

However, with the rebound in orders, according to the current situation, Dongguan is likely to exceed the trillion yuan mark in 2021.

  In contrast, Shenyang, the only new first-tier city in Northeast China, is still far away from the trillion yuan mark.

Statistics released by the Shenyang Municipal Bureau of Statistics show that the city's GDP in 2020 will be 657.16 billion yuan, an increase of 0.8% over the previous year at comparable prices, and the total economic output is only 26.3% of the top Chongqing.

  In terms of growth rate, the fast-growing new first-tier cities are mainly strong provincial capital cities, of which the top five are Xi'an, Nanjing, Hefei, Chengdu and Changsha.

Among them, Xi'an ranked first among the new first-tier cities with a growth rate of 5.2%.

In addition, Hefei, Changsha, and Chengdu also come from the central and western regions.

  Ding Changfa told China Business News that with the rise in overall costs in the developed coastal areas, a large number of industries have shifted to the central and western regions. In this process, the central and western regions, especially powerful provincial capitals, have become the focus of industry and population agglomeration, and the economic growth has been relatively fast. .

  On the other hand, after my country’s economic development has entered a new stage of transformation and upgrading, the advantages of provincial capitals in science, education, medical care, and culture have become increasingly prominent, the development of high-tech industries in provincial capitals has accelerated, and the city’s primacy has continued to increase, gathering surrounding resources. The factors and the ability to drive the development of the surrounding areas continue to increase.

  In contrast, cities with slower growth rates, with the exception of Wuhan, which has been hit hard by the epidemic, are mainly from Northeast and North China, which are dominated by heavy chemical industries, and Dongguan and Foshan, where the coastal export-oriented economy accounts for a large proportion. .
