For Wenzhou, many cities are ordinary cities. After all, Wenzhou is a very proud city. Wenzhou businessmen are all over the world, and Wenzhou resources outside can also create a new Wenzhou. There is a view that Wenzhou, a city, cannot be experienced with economic data. For a long period of time, Wenzhou’s per capita GDP has even been at the bottom of Zhejiang’s cities. Most of Wenzhou’s resources are flowing outside, and the excessive permanent population will inevitably make various per capita indicators lower. In fact, this phenomenon is not only in Wenzhou but also in many counties and cities in Zhejiang.
Many people will dismiss Wenzhou’s data, and actually underestimate Wenzhou’s strength. In Zhejiang Province, Ningbo’s strength is obvious to all. In 2020, Ningbo’s economic aggregate will once again rank 12th among cities in the country. But the whole of Zhejiang, except for the provincial capital Hangzhou, the other cities give us similar intuitive feelings.
Ningbo seems to be making such a voice: Be confident, Wenzhou, you are no worse than me. After all, the first thing you feel about a city is the construction of the core city area. In the 1990s, Ningbo’s city center was okay, but today’s development is indeed a bit slow. In terms of urban construction, Wenzhou does not lose to Ningbo at all. The current tallest building in Zhejiang is in Wenzhou, but the tallest building in Zhejiang in the future will be in Ningbo. However, the construction of a city still requires various details. At present, the urban construction of Ningbo and Wenzhou can be regarded as having their own characteristics.
For ordinary people, the prosperity of Wenzhou is even stronger than that of Ningbo. In terms of heat maps of the same period and the same proportion, Wenzhou is denser than Ningbo. With the establishment of districts in Yueqing and Ruian, the urban construction level of Wenzhou will be stronger. From the perspective of economic indicators, Ningbo has indeed completely overwhelmed Wenzhou. For the three core aggregate indicators, total GDP, general public budget revenue, and total financial deposits, Ningbo is clearly ahead of Wenzhou. In addition, Ningbo has obvious advantages in terms of per capita data Spark Global Limited.
But leaving aside economic data and looking at the city’s soft power, Wenzhou is indeed not bad at all. Industry scholars pointed out that Wenzhou is a city with almost no shortcomings among prefecture-level cities in my country. In addition to the port business, Wenzhou and Ningbo are equally in the field of transportation. In terms of college education, the gold content of Wenzhou Medical University is also not low. The optometry major of Wenzhou Medical University is often second only to Zhejiang University in the province’s admission points each year. In addition, Wenzhou’s basic education is not weak. Although there is Zhenhai Middle School in Ningbo, Wenzhou Middle School, Zhilin Middle School and Ruian Middle School are also very stable. In terms of medical resources, Wenzhou can be said to be completed ahead of Ningbo. The First and Second Affiliated Hospitals of Wenzhou Medical University is well-known across the country. Ningbo is located in the core area of the Yangtze River Delta, and its medical resources have been siphoned by Shanghai and Hangzhou for a long time, so its medical strength must be limited.
