Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone was approved by the State Council
The Guangzhou Development Zone will have two comprehensive bonded zones, one in the south and one in the north
The 4th comprehensive bonded zone in Guangzhou and the 12th comprehensive bonded zone in Guangdong Province is here, and the flowers are in the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City!
On 11 November, the Guangzhou Development District and Huangpu District held a press conference on the approval of the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone. It is reported that the State Council officially approved the integration and optimization of the Guangzhou Free Trade Zone and the Guangzhou Export Processing Zone into the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone, creating the first case of simultaneous relocation and integration and optimization of two special customs supervision areas in Guangdong, adding a new stroke to the history of Guangzhou's opening to the outside world. Since then, Guangzhou Development Zone and Huangpu District will have two comprehensive bonded zones, one south and one north, with Guangzhou Huangpu Comprehensive Bonded Zone in the south and Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone in the north.
Approved: Guangzhou has added a new engine for a high-standard open platform
The Comprehensive Bonded Zone (hereinafter referred to as the "Comprehensive Bonded Zone") is a "golden key" to open the door to high-level opening-up.
Its birth is not only the background of domestic and international "dual circulation", but also an inevitable requirement for high-quality development. From "both ends to the outside" to both internal and external two-way opening, from cross-border logistics and export processing to shoulder the important task of cultivating new quality productivity and promoting new industrialization, calling for the continuous upgrading of the open economic platform.
As a special customs supervision area with the highest level of openness, the most preferential policies, the most complete functions and the most simplified procedures in China, it integrates the functions of bonded zones, export processing zones, bonded logistics parks and ports.
Previously, Guangzhou already had three comprehensive bonded zones of Huangpu, Nansha and Baiyun Airport, and was one of the few first-tier cities in the country with three comprehensive bonded zones of "sea, land and air", and still seized new opportunities at a close pace. The proposal for the integration and optimization of the Guangzhou Free Trade Zone and the Guangzhou Export Processing Zone into the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone was submitted to the State Council at the end of 3.
Now, the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone has been officially unveiled under the great anticipation -
Covering an area of 0.82 square kilometres, the planning area is located in the northern start-up area of the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City, adjacent to the Biomedical Value Innovation Park and the Advanced Manufacturing Park of the Knowledge City, with basic functions such as bonded processing, bonded logistics and bonded services. At present, the preparation of control regulations, adjustment of soil regulations, land acquisition and approval have been completed, and construction has started in the near future.
Enterprises in the CBZ can carry out independent filing, independently determine the write-off cycle in combination with the inventory plan, independently carry out the verification and declaration of account books, and handle the declaration and payment procedures for the supplementary tax payment of goods, and the customs simplifies the approval procedures for business qualifications, further improving the supervision efficiency. According to Zhou Yunbao, deputy director of Huangpu Customs, the CBZ can also replicate and promote the innovative supervision experience of the free trade zone, realize the linkage between the two zones, and have richer functions and higher trade facilitation.
Advantages: superimpose the policy dividend of "Economic Development Zone + Free Trade Zone Linkage Development Zone + Comprehensive Bonded Zone".
This year marks the fifth anniversary of SSGKC's elevation to a national-level bilateral cooperation project, and at this important juncture, SSGKC CBZ has been approved by the State Council, making its development advantages even more obvious.
As a "newcomer" to the CBZ, SSGKC's policy dividends have become more prominent. "We will benchmark the construction plan of Hainan Free Trade Port and Yangshan Special Comprehensive Bonded Zone, and give full play to the policy superposition advantages of 'Economic Development Zone + Free Trade Zone Linkage Development Zone + Comprehensive Bonded Zone'." Dai Xinxiang, member of the Party Working Committee and deputy director of the Management Committee of the Guangzhou Development Zone, said that the next step will be to build the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone into an industry-based characteristic comprehensive bonded zone.
According to SSGKC's Co-operation Office, the SSGKC CBZ facilitates the provision of bonded logistics, processing, R&D and maintenance services for enterprises, which will enhance the efficiency of internal logistics in SSGKC and promote the formation of a new "3+1" (R&D, incubation, production + foreign trade) pattern in SSGKC North.
At present, there are projects such as Zhuozhi, Xuanyi Biotechnology, and Singapore International Logistics that intend to enter the area for development. For strategic emerging industries such as biopharmaceuticals, integrated circuits, new energy and new materials clustered in SSGKC, enterprises have a strong demand for bonded policies such as bonded processing, bonded logistics, bonded R&D, etc., and through the CBZ, they can better "go global", deeply integrate into the international industrial chain, value chain and supply chain, and develop an open economy at a higher level and higher level.
As one of the first batch of enterprises to enter the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone, Jiang Huafeng, manager of the development department of Guangzhou Zhiteqi Biotechnology Co., Ltd., said that biomedical enterprises have a large demand for the import of core raw materials, and after entering the comprehensive bonded zone, the import cost of key instruments and equipment has become lower and more efficient.
Linkage: Guangzhou Development Zone has entered the era of "double comprehensive bonded zone".
With the approval of the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone, the Guangzhou Development District and Huangpu District have become the only areas in Guangzhou with "Double Comprehensive Bonded Zone". The two national-level opening-up platforms not only develop an open economy at a higher level and a higher level, but also better serve the construction of the "Belt and Road" and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
According to the "2019 Articles of the Comprehensive Bonded Zone" issued by the State Council in 21, it is the development goal of the CBZ to become a processing and manufacturing center, a R&D and design center, a logistics distribution center, a testing and maintenance center, and a sales and service center with global influence and competitiveness.
The Huangpu Comprehensive Bonded Zone and the SSGKC Comprehensive Bonded Zone just focus on the goal of the "Five Centers" and work together.
Since its closure on March 2021, 3, it has expanded from a relatively single bonded logistics to various "bonded +" industrial forms, and has achieved an import and export value of nearly 8 billion yuan per unit area on 0.494 square kilometers of land. Relying on the location advantage of "Linjiang port, baytop pearl", we will focus on the development of new industries, new formats and new models such as bonded automobiles, cross-border e-commerce, logistics distribution and bonded maintenance, cultivate and expand new formats and models such as global logistics distribution centers and bonded global maintenance centers, and create a special customs supervision area with international competitiveness and innovation.
Looking at the SSGKC Comprehensive Bonded Zone, in the future, it will develop into a "1+4" industrial development pattern of "bonded + R&D and design, achievement incubation, high-end manufacturing, testing and maintenance", supporting bonded logistics and warehousing, global supply chain services, and creating a comprehensive bonded zone featuring R&D, innovation and service trade, which has formed a complementary effect with the Huangpu Comprehensive Bonded Zone.
One in the south and one in the north, the district has two comprehensive bonded zones, which will form a "1+1>1" effect.
For the Guangzhou Development Zone and Huangpu District, where advanced manufacturing industries such as "strong core, bright screen, smart car, and drug research" are gathered, many enterprises have strong demand in logistics, processing, R&D, and maintenance. Taking the bonded maintenance business as an example, at present, the number and variety of export products in the zone are growing, and the business of "global repair" is also quite prosperous. When conducting business in the CBZ, there is no need to levy taxes at the time of entry, nor do you need to provide guarantees, and the maintenance of high-value items such as LCD screens can also save tax costs, and high-tech enterprises can adjust the production rhythm according to the global market demand at any time and quickly deploy the global industrial chain.
As a result, the coordinated development of the "Double Comprehensive Bonded Zone" between the north and the south, forming a strong supply chain guarantee force through bonded logistics, serving the development of industrial clusters in Knowledge City, Science City and Maritime Silk Road City, and helping enterprises better connect the two markets and resources at home and abroad.
Leap: Another important addition to the history of the opening up of the Guangzhou Development Zone
It is worth noting that the Guangzhou Knowledge City Comprehensive Bonded Zone is an integrated and optimized version of the Guangzhou Free Trade Zone and the Guangzhou Export Processing Zone.
This was an important stroke in the history of Guangzhou's opening up to the outside world, and with the arrival of new characters, a new historical picture is slowly unfolding.
The Guangzhou Free Trade Zone was officially approved by the State Council in 1992, while the Guangzhou Export Processing Zone was established in 2000 and is one of the first 15 export processing zones in China. These functional areas have emerged due to the policy advantages of different eras, and are all "born" in Guangzhou Development Zone and Huangpu District, because it is the main position of Guangzhou's reform and opening up, with the export-oriented economy as the main body, and in the period of economic take-off, through the implementation of preferential tax policies in specific areas, foreign capital can be better utilized, and international trade and entrepot trade can be facilitated.
Openness is the biggest advantage of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and it is also the innate gene of the Guangzhou Development Zone and Huangpu District. Looking back on history, from the birth of the first batch of national economic and technological development zones in 1984, to the establishment of the first batch of national high-tech industrial development zones in 1991, from the early establishment of bonded zones in the 90s of the last century, to the birth of the first batch of national export processing zones in 2000, every important opening node, Guangzhou Development Zone and Huangpu District have been in their prime, bravely standing at the head of the tide, promoting development with opening up, and driving deeper opening up with development.
Over the years, in the process of development and opening up, Guangzhou Development Zone has achieved one "first" after another, such as the first domestic car bonded processing and export base built in Guangzhou Export Processing Zone in 2004 - Honda Automobile (China) Co., Ltd., etc., in the "test field" of national policies, continue to output good experience and practices, especially the integration between functional areas, and solve the common problems encountered in the development of China's Economic Development Zone——
Guangzhou was the first to explore the integration of economic and technological development zones, high-tech development zones, bonded zones and export processing zones, and at the same time actively explored the organic integration of development zones and administrative zones to form a unique "five zones in one" management model, so as to fully integrate investment channels and carry out development and construction according to the different requirements of various industries for the environment, so that Guangzhou Development Zone has gained a huge impetus to accelerate its development and attract foreign investment.
At present, the amount of direct utilization of foreign investment in Guangzhou Development Zone has ranked first in the national economic development zone for four consecutive years, and 4 countries and regions such as Japan, South Korea, Europe and the United States, and ASEAN have carried out economic and trade exchanges, and the actual utilization of foreign capital has reached 219.1 billion US dollars from January to September this year, an increase of 9.27% year-on-year.
Different stages of reform and opening up have different specific needs. With the vigorous development of cross-border e-commerce and other emerging business formats, single-functional zones have gradually withdrawn from the historical stage, and comprehensive bonded zones integrating bonded zones, export processing zones, bonded logistics parks, ports and other functions have become a new highland for China's open economic development.
At the forefront of reform and opening up, it once again stands at the forefront of the times and opens a new round of leap. With the entry into the era of "Double Comprehensive Bonded Zone", it will further expand the "circle of friends" of foreign cooperation and become a "booster" for the 40-year-old Guangzhou Development Zone.
