Visions and Plans
function and target of Ningbo Development Zone are set as follows: first class
development zone of national level, important energy, raw material, chemical industry
base in Eastern China and important wing for Shanghai International Transportation
Center, important base for foreign investment attract and an important display
window for opening to the world in Ningbo and Zhejiang, a model area for conversion
of scientific research results and technical innovation, and new of socialist
modern international port city.
major index of the Development Zone's 10th five-year plan: urban population: 0.25
million. Industrial output value: 50 billion RMB. GDP:15.5billion RMB, among which
the service sector will have 5 billion RMB as output value. Export will be 1.2
billion USD and accumulated actual foreign investment 2.6 billion USD.
2020, Ningbo Development Zone's long term plan is to convert here into a modern,
international port city and a model show case area that is well incorporated into
the global economy, which has sound economy, advanced technology and beautiful
environment. The target are in the following details: 1) completed the
construction of infrastructure development for the Development Zone in the main.
