  The regional GDP increased by 6.5% year-on-year, the added value of the secondary industry increased by 9.2% year-on-year, and the total industrial output value above designated size achieved a year-on-year increase of 14.2%.

Among them, the output value of the automobile manufacturing industry increased by 36.6% year-on-year, and the added value of the advanced manufacturing industry increased by 21.0% year-on-year... The economic data for the first quarter of this year from the unified accounting of Nansha District, Guangzhou shows that the automobile manufacturing industry is the main driving force for the growth of the district, and emerging industries The industry is growing rapidly.

  The results achieved by the high-quality development of the manufacturing industry in Nansha District are a vivid illustration of Guangzhou's strategy of "adhering to industry first and manufacturing a city", and it has become an important example of Guangdong Province to accelerate the development of advanced manufacturing and promote the optimization of industrial structure.

  The role of support is increasingly prominent

  "GAC Group actively responded to risks and challenges, and coordinated more than 500 upstream supply chain parts companies to resume work and production. In the first quarter, the production and sales of automobiles reached 598,000 and 608,000, an increase of 25.0% and 22.5% year-on-year respectively, and both production and sales achieved a good start; The total industrial output value was 103.9 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 35.3%.” said Gurry, deputy general manager of GAC Group.

  Guangzhou is an important manufacturing town in Guangdong.

"In the first quarter, Guangzhou's industrial economy achieved a 'stable opening', and the development of industry and informatization maintained a good development trend." Gao Yuyue, director of the Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of Industry and Information Technology, said that in the first quarter, Guangzhou's industrial added value above designated size was 126.8 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 126.8 billion yuan. The growth rate of 7.9% is higher than that of the whole country (6.5%) and the whole province (5.8%). The growth contribution rate of the automobile and electronics industries is nearly 90%, which is a strong support for the development of the manufacturing industry.

  Statistics show that in the first quarter, the added value of Guangzhou's advanced manufacturing industry was 77.9 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 10.5%, accounting for 61.4% of the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size, an increase of 1.4 percentage points year-on-year.

The added value of high-tech manufacturing was 24.7 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 23.9%, 16 percentage points higher than the city's average, accounting for 19.4% of the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size, a year-on-year increase of 1 percentage point.

  Over the years, Guangdong, a major manufacturing province, has always insisted on developing advanced manufacturing, which has also made Guangdong's economy more resilient in coping with shocks.

  The reporter learned from the press conference for the first quarter of 2022 held by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology recently that advanced manufacturing has played a supporting role in Guangdong's economy.

In the first quarter, the added value of advanced manufacturing industries in Guangdong Province increased by 5.9%, and the absolute value accounted for 54.3% of the industrial enterprises above designated size in Guangdong Province.

Among them, the added value of industries above designated size such as automobiles, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and electrical machinery increased by 24.2%, 6.1%, 16.4%, and 4.6% respectively.

The output of industrial products with higher technical content and higher added value maintained rapid growth. In the first quarter, the output of new energy vehicles increased by 189.6% year-on-year, accounting for 16.2% of the national output; the output of industrial robots increased by 4.1% year-on-year, accounting for 32.5% of the national output. %.

  Industrial production rises steadily

  Walking into the Galanz Industry 4.0 Smart Home Appliance Manufacturing Demonstration Base in Shunde, Guangdong, the robot arm on the assembly line is constantly waving, and the MES system is introduced across the line. Every 6.7 seconds, a microwave oven is offline, and 11 million healthy home appliances go to the world from here every year.

This year, in order to meet the needs of consumption upgrades, Galanz will accelerate innovation from smart factories to open source chips, and comprehensively promote capital increase and production expansion.

  Data shows that Galanz refrigerator exports in the first quarter of this year achieved double-digit growth year-on-year, and more than 90% of them were self-owned brands. The export areas include North America, South America and other regions, as well as RCEP-related markets such as ASEAN.

  Despite the impact of the epidemic, Guangdong's industrial production remained stable with moderate growth in the first quarter. The added value of industrial enterprises above designated size was 0.89 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 5.8%.

In terms of industry categories, the growth rate of the province's industrial industries is 87.2%.

Among the pillar industries, the booming production and sales of new energy vehicles led to a 24.2% increase in the added value of the automobile manufacturing industry, a 3.2% increase in the computer, communications and other electronic equipment manufacturing industries, and a 4.6% increase in the electrical machinery and equipment manufacturing industry.

  This is also confirmed by the first quarter economic development data in Guangdong.

Gaoming District, Foshan City is one of the relatively underdeveloped areas in Foshan and even Guangdong.

According to data released by the Gaoming District Bureau of Statistics, the region's GDP grew by 7.1% in the first quarter, marking a good start to the economy.

It is worth noting that the industrial resilience of Gaoming District is particularly evident under the epidemic.

In the first quarter, the total industrial output value of Gaoming District above designated size was 86.225 billion yuan, an increase of 9.5%; the added value was 16.832 billion yuan, an increase of 10.0%.

Steady progress in the digitalization and intelligence of the manufacturing industry has driven an 88.3% year-on-year increase in investment in industrial technological transformation, and the added value of high-tech manufacturing and equipment manufacturing has increased by 28.5% and 11.2% respectively.

  In Guangdong, new industrial growth areas like Foshan Gaoming District have shown their potential, and traditional industrial strong areas have performed well.

Shunde District of Foshan City is based on the total industrial output value of one trillion yuan. In the first quarter, the total industrial output value of above-scale industries increased by 7.7% year-on-year, and the added value of above-scale industries increased by 8.1% year-on-year.

The added value of advanced manufacturing, equipment manufacturing and high-tech manufacturing continued to grow rapidly, increasing by 8.1%, 11.4% and 16.7% respectively.

  Industrial clusters are on the rise

  A series of data shows that the continuous optimization of Guangdong's industrial structure is also reflected in the accelerated development of strategic industrial clusters.

  In May 2020, Guangdong Province issued an opinion on cultivating and developing strategic pillar industry clusters and strategic emerging industry clusters, and proposed to create ten strategic pillar industry clusters and ten strategic emerging industry clusters to develop strategic industry clusters in Guangdong. Draw a "roadmap".

  According to reports, in the first quarter, the added value of the top 20 strategic industrial clusters in Guangdong Province increased by 5.9% year-on-year, and the added value accounted for 38.1% of the regional GDP.

The ten strategic pillar industry clusters increased by 5.2% year-on-year, among which the smart home appliance industry cluster, automobile industry cluster, biomedicine and health industry cluster grew rapidly; the ten strategic emerging industry clusters increased by 12.6% year-on-year, of which semiconductor and Integrated circuit industry clusters, high-end equipment manufacturing industry clusters, and cutting-edge new material industry clusters have grown rapidly.

  This is confirmed again by Guangzhou Nansha, a new industrial growth pole in Guangzhou: in terms of emerging industries, the 3+5 strategic emerging industries in Guangzhou Nansha achieved a year-on-year increase of 13.7% in added value in the first quarter of this year, and the added value accounted for the total regional production. The proportion of value reached 38.0%, accounting for an increase of 4.2 percentage points compared with 2021.

Among them, the added value of the three emerging pillar industries of new generation information technology, intelligent and new energy automobile industry, biomedicine and health increased by 20.0% year-on-year, accounting for 25.2% of the regional GDP, and accounting for an increase of 4.2 percentage points compared to 2021.

  The current figures represent Guangdong's past high-end manufacturing investment, and since this year, Guangdong's high-end manufacturing reserves have been continuously strengthened.

On February 8, the second day of the new year, the Guangzhou Development Zone held the first-quarter major industrial project signing and commencement activities. 109 projects covered new-generation information technology, intelligent equipment, biomedicine, new energy and new materials, artificial intelligence and digital economy and other fields.

The total planned investment of construction and contracted projects is about 120.3 billion yuan.

  It is understood that Guangzhou Development District proposed to implement the "Trillion-trillion Manufacturing" plan during the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, with emerging industrial clusters as the core, instead of taking the traditional, quantitative and resource-based path, but to achieve energy level superposition, industrial Iterative, cluster butterfly change.

  Qu Jian, vice president of China (Shenzhen) Comprehensive Development Research Institute, believes that the industrial structure of Guangdong is gradually optimizing, and the average growth rate of advanced manufacturing industry, biomedical industry and other fields exceeds that of other industries.
