Songjiang: anchor high-quality development and actively build advanced manufacturing industry clusters

  ■Our reporter Zhang Yi

  Almost in a blink of an eye, Songjiang District, known for its "roots of Shanghai" and its rich cultural heritage, is already on the cusp of many new industries and new tracks: Industrial Internet, Songjiang, as a national industrial demonstration base, has gathered in just a few years More than 200 representative companies; in terms of artificial intelligence (AI), with the settlement of Asia’s largest AI supercomputer hub, more than 800 companies have grown rapidly in Songjiang, forming an ecological advantage; in the aviation industry, Songjiang guides SMEs to connect with COMAC , To accelerate the localization of large aircraft; In the field of frontier satellite Internet, Songjiang has also recently made substantial breakthroughs-the construction of the "G60 Star Chain" industrial base officially set sail not long ago. In the future, it will not only have a production capacity of 300 satellites per year, but also build In the global low-orbit satellite network, the satellite named "Songjiang" has been launched into orbit.

  Statistics show that in the past five years, Songjiang District has truly achieved a transformation and a big leap: the gross regional product (GDP) increased by 10.2% annually during the 13th Five-Year Plan period, and increased by 8.8% from January to September this year. The fiscal revenue has been increasing for 70 consecutive months, and the total amount has rushed to the forefront from the end of the city.

In the absence of large-scale central enterprises, state-owned enterprises, and scientific research institutes, Songjiang District fully implements new development concepts, firmly grasps the direction of high-quality development, firmly relies on the “first driving force” of innovation, focuses on the real economy, strengthens nuclear technology, and actively builds The advanced manufacturing industry clusters are struggling to advance on the journey of industrial innovation.

 "Between addition and subtraction" witnessed breakthroughs in the transformation of the real economy

  Songjiang District, located in the southwest of Shanghai, was originally not very conspicuous in the city's economy.

At the end of the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, according to a number of core and leading indicators such as local fiscal revenue growth, Songjiang ranked at the end of each district in many respects.

The Songjiang District Party Committee and the district government realized that to change this situation, it is necessary to comprehensively promote supply-side structural reforms, seize the opportunity to change ideas, tilt the allocation of resource elements to the real economy and advanced production capacity, and drive breakthrough growth through innovation.

  This is the "addition" of Songjiang's high-quality development.

  In order to develop advanced manufacturing, Songjiang first spent a large price to support the development of leading enterprises.

The world-renowned robot manufacturer "KUKA" settled in Songjiang. As the business scale continued to increase, the company began to worry about lack of space, and once considered relocating.

After understanding the situation, the district tried every means to coordinate and implement land use targets for the enterprise in a short period of time, and even the talent apartment was also resolved.

In the following years, the development of "KUKA" has further accelerated, and the recognition of Songjiang has also risen sharply.

At the beginning of this year, the company moved its sales headquarters to Songjiang.

  First there is Bole, and then there is Maxima.

Songjiang's attitude and actions to develop the real economy have won the trust of the industry, and a large number of tens of billions of projects have flooded in.

During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the average annual growth rate of industrial investment in Songjiang District was as high as 35%.

At present, the planned industrial output value of the zone exceeds 400 billion yuan, ranking second in the city, of which strategic emerging industries account for 63.1%.

It is worth mentioning that, compared with the beginning of the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the proportion of manufacturing tax revenue has risen from 35.9% to a maximum of 48.5%, while real estate tax revenue has dropped from its peak to nearly half of the country's revenue to about 20%.

  In fact, not only anchoring the real economy as an "addition", Songjiang District has also worked hard to do a good job in the "subtraction" of structural adjustment-over the past five years, more than 4,100 backward production capacity companies have been cleared and more than 21 million square meters have been demolished. The “vacation of cages for birds” has also prompted resources to further serve high-quality development.

  The vibrant ecological clusters behind "innovative multiplication"

  The new development space expanded through "addition" requires innovation to inject a steady stream of kinetic energy.

Facing the complicated and severe external situation and the sudden epidemic situation, Songjiang District, with the vigor of the day and night, lays out the innovation chain around the industrial chain, releases the innovation multiplier effect, and drives the real economy to achieve a greater leap through innovative "multiplication".

During the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period, high-tech enterprises in Songjiang District increased by 2.7 times, and "specialized, special-new" enterprises increased by 3.5 times; the R&D investment intensity of the whole society reached 4.59%, which exceeded the city’s average level by nearly 0.5 percentage points, and achieved Shanghai 5 years ahead of schedule. The R&D investment target proposed in the "14th Five-Year Plan".

  The platform of top innovation institutions has gradually settled down, and major original innovations have been produced continuously-although it is not a traditional science and technology resource intensive area, Songjiang District is making solid contributions to strengthening the national strategic scientific and technological strength.

At present, including the G60 Brain Intelligence Science and Technology Innovation Base, the Shanghai Plant Adversity Biology Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Shanghai Low-Carbon Technology Research Institute and other top research institutions, Tencent Keen Laboratory, Youtu Laboratory and other top R&D institutions have been established in Songjiang. Take advantage of the trend to drive a group of "handsome talents" in scientific research into the station; while promoting research in basic and frontier fields, Songjiang District also vigorously stimulates the enthusiasm of enterprise innovation subjects and supports them to seize the commanding heights of key technologies.

In the past two years, the heavyweight innovations of "Songjiang Creation", from somatic cell clone monkeys, a new class of drug climycin, to new aviation turboprop engines, and a series of advanced integrated circuit equipment and materials, constitute the long-term development strategy of high-end industries. Fulcrum.

  Aiming to participate in global industrial competition and cooperation, Songjiang District is actively building an advanced manufacturing highland.

Every year, the district puts out 2 billion yuan of funds to support various major functional projects and entities to settle down, and at the same time introduces policies to guide enterprises to invest in "stuck necks" and disruptive technologies.

Under the leadership of the three leading industries of integrated circuits, biomedicine, and artificial intelligence, the "6+X" emerging industry clusters have risen rapidly. A group of companies with international competitiveness or filling domestic gaps have won the "Songjiang Creation" brand. More and more attention and recognition.

  To solve the "multiplication" of innovation, Songjiang District not only pays attention to leading enterprises, but also fully supports the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, and explores the extension of the industrial chain innovation chain through "head goose leading", so as to achieve synergistic effects.

Taking the aviation industry as an example, in order to promote the localization of large aircraft, Songjiang District actively helps small and medium-sized suppliers to connect with COMAC.

In the past six months, COMAC's qualified and potential suppliers have expanded by nearly 30%.

A new material company named "Kejian Polymer", due to the matchmaking in Songjiang District, has communicated face-to-face with COMAC nearly 30 times since March and completed the establishment and testing of related materials, which shortened the time by nearly 80%.

In the fields of integrated circuits, artificial intelligence, biomedicine, and other fields, similar innovative consortia are also growing, and a vibrant tropical rainforest-style scientific and technological innovation ecology is about to emerge.

It’s difficult to “exclude” the business environment by serving the business environment

  Why did Asia's largest AI supercomputing hub choose to settle in Songjiang?

In addition to being optimistic about the industrial environment, investor Tencent also recognizes the business environment.

This mega project with a total investment of 45 billion yuan benefited from the overall optimization of business services in Songjiang District. It only took 58 days from signing the contract to completing the land delisting.

For Tencent, this means that the “shops” in Songjiang District have seized nearly a year of time and opportunity for it.

  High-quality business environment services can “remove all” unnecessary obstacles on the way forward for enterprises.

Songjiang District also answered this "division" question very well.

  During the four consecutive rounds of business environment reforms, Songjiang District responded quickly and intensively. In the meantime, it also accepted international standards of business environment evaluation and review on behalf of Shanghai and the country, which not only left a deep impression on the experts, but also formed many sample cases.

In the approval of project construction, they took the lead in implementing measures such as "one-window acceptance", "land acquisition and construction start", and "phased completion acceptance check and put into use in advance", and the "special issue" of rapid approval has become the normal state of management.

By promoting each department from "fighting individually" to "coordinated operation", the enterprise can do "only one door and only one department."

Facing the needs of enterprises for cross-domain operations, Songjiang District is actively extending services, creating a "cross-provincial administration" system, which can handle the establishment and registration of Shanghai enterprises in other places.

  What enterprises need is what the government departments work hard for.

In daily operations, Songjiang District, in accordance with the requirements of "zero distance", takes the initiative to move forward and resolve bottlenecks faced by enterprises to reduce their operating costs.

Upon learning that a foreign expert of an integrated circuit company was unable to apply for a personal bank card due to various reasons and was inconvenient for family members to come to China for visas, the district party secretary took the lead in meeting and coordinating, organizing the minister to follow up the whole process, and visiting the expert couple within 3 months A permanent residence permit was issued.

Afterwards, the experts said that they would lead the team to take root in Songjiang, speed up the research and development process, and realize the mass production of key technologies as soon as possible.

  Facing the various challenges in today's economic field, high-quality development is undoubtedly one of the best solutions.

Through "addition, subtraction, multiplication and division", Songjiang District not only left behind the story of "from 0 to 1" and "from 1 to 10 to 100", it also catalyzed the polymerization of various development elements, and then gathered a powerful Strategic potential and technological innovation momentum.
