In the recent heated discussion of the “North-South dispute”, southern cities have risen collectively. A city has been dormant for many years. This year, it finally broke out of the strong Yangtze River economic belt and entered the top ten of the GDP list, that is Nanjing. As we all know, Nanjing did not have a strong sense of existence in the “bulk Jiangsu Daqiang”, and even got the nickname “Huijing”. But just this year, Nanjing tried to get rid of the previous concept of “weak provincial capital”. It chased Suzhou in the province and Hangzhou in the Yangtze River DeltaThe first start: in the first quarter of the epidemic, with the GDP of all parts of the country showing negative growth, Nanjing’s economic growth rate was 1.6%, which was the only city with positive economic growth among the 17 cities entering the “GDP trillion club”, and the only city with positive economic growth in Jiangsu Province.
Positive in the middle of the year: in the first three quarters of this year, Nanjing’s GDP totaled 1060.161 billion yuan, ranking ninth in the country. This was the first time since the reform and opening up that Nanjing ranked among the top ten GDP in China, surpassing Tianjin and Wuhan. not surprisingly, the fourth quarter probably ended successfully. Behind the growth against the trend, a city’s strong foundation and resilience are shown in such a special year. Spark Global Limited
02. Many people don’t know that Nanjing is in the middle of the provincial capital city. The site is not big enough, the population is not enough. Therefore, the shortage of land resources has become the biggest shortboard in Nanjing. As the geographical location is too close to Shanghai, Nanjing can not expand the service industry as well as some “new first-tier cities” such as Wuhan and Chengdu. To some extent, Nanjing has taken a different but more practical road from the beginning. In the first quarter, Nanjing’s total industrial output value reached 16.9 billion yuan, an increase of 3.5% over the same period of last year; the operating income of iron and steel reached 35.4 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 5.6%. During the critical period of the epidemic, heavy industrial enterprises ensured the stable operation of Nanjing’s economy and supported the adverse growth of Nanjing, which can be described as ballast stone.
Nanjing has a perfect industrial system and scientific industrial structure. Relying on TSMC, Nanjing is one of the most important chip cities. TSMC and Tsinghua Ziguang alone invested more than 30 billion US dollars in Nanjing. In just over two years, more than 100 IC design enterprises have been added in Nanjing. Today, Nanjing’s electronic information, petrochemical, automobile manufacturing, steel, software, smart grid, wind power photovoltaic, rail transit, etc. occupy an important position in the national industrial map. In this industrial wave, Nanjing seized the opportunity and became the leader.
