  From the analysis of the two sessions of the Yuecheng District that are being held, the past five years are the key to the "transition" of the district, and the space, business format, culture, etc. are the keys to "leapfrog".

Changes in Spatial Patterns

  "The current Yuecheng is no longer the Yuecheng of the past." Shen Huaqing, a representative of the Yuecheng District People's Congress and director of the Yuecheng Development and Reform Bureau, said bluntly in an interview.

  This change, the most intuitive is the change in space.

  In the past five years, Yuecheng District, which was originally based on traditional industries, has gradually withdrawn from the printing, dyeing, chemical and electroplating industry, and has attracted "chain-based" enterprises such as SMIC, Changjiang Electronics Technology, and OmniVision Technology to land.

Today, the proportion of added value of strategic emerging industries has risen to 34.8%.

  This move is due to the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries and the cultivation and layout of emerging industries in the district.

  "Industrial development requires technological innovation." Ji Sheng, member of the Yuecheng District Political Consultative Conference and general manager of Shaoxing Donghu Hi-Tech Co., Ltd., was deeply touched by the change in the business format.

Jisheng's company has been focusing on the chemical industry for a long time. Driven by sustainable development, the company optimizes processes and independently innovates micro-reaction technology to make chemical production more green and environmentally friendly.

The number of high-level talents increased to 407, and the total number of human resources exceeded 336,000.

  In the next five years, Yuecheng District will implement the "135" project of high-end industrialization, which will develop three strategic emerging industries, including integrated circuits, biomedicine, and future industries.

When Qian Linjiang, acting head of Yuecheng District People's Government, gave a government work report, he revealed the key tasks of the district in the next five years. .

  The cultural soft power is indispensable for the millennium ancient city to move towards the "100 billion new city".

In the past five years, Yangming's hometown and other ancient city projects have been steadily advanced, and the pattern of "one city, one bridge and three hometowns" has been gradually formed.

  "The 9.09-square-kilometer ancient city of Shaoxing is a precious wealth that no one can move or copy." Qian Linjiang said that Yuecheng should be guided by the city's application for World Heritage status, promote the activation and utilization of Taimen, and promote the protection of the former residences of celebrities Utilize and implement "Song Yun Culture Handed Down Project" and other work.

  Such spiritual and cultural power has made Feng Xiuli, a member of the CPPCC in Yuecheng District and a teacher of Beihai Primary School Education Group, feel the surging cultural context of the city. "In recent years, the international communication power of Yuecheng culture has become stronger and stronger, and its cultural influence is expanding. It reflects the characteristics of the interactive development of economy and culture.”

  As a Taiwanese member, Feng Xiuli believes that Yuecheng should continue to strengthen cultural exchanges with foreign countries through various methods such as going out and bringing in, "For example, taking the opportunity of applying for World Heritage status to open the gate of the ancient city, and using digitalization and other means to introduce the ancient city to the world. It can also encourage Taiwan youth and overseas Chinese to enter Yuecheng and carry out research and study tours.” (End)
