Various districts in Shenzhen charted new blueprints, set targets and worked out action plans for the new year at congress sessions or Party conferences.

Nanshan’s GDP in 2018 is expected to have exceeded 500 billion yuan (US$73.95 billion), with fiscal revenue reaching 26.8 billion yuan, an increase of 12.8 percent over the previous year.

Home to more than 3,500 State-level high-tech enterprises, the district’s comprehensive strength ranks No. 1 among China’s Top 100 Districts.

At the 3rd session of the 7th Congress of the Nanshan Party committee, the district said it would take hold of the historic opportunities brought by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and implement strategic projects that are vital to the district’s overall development.

The three projects include planning the 60-square kilometer Xili Lake International Education City. The education city is set to be a science and technology innovation center in the Greater Bay Area, integrating basic research, technological innovation, industrialization and fin-tech.

The Shenzhen Bay CBD is trying to become the center of the headquarters economy of the Greater Bay Area. Along the coast, an economic belt will link Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base, Houhai Finance and Commerce Base and the Qianhai and Shekou Area of the China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone.

At the 5th session of the 7th Luohu District People’s Congress on Jan. 15, Luo Yude, head of the district government, unveiled 10 action plans for 2019, the 40th anniversary of the district.

The action plans include working out the development of the Liantang area by taking the opportunity to open Liantang Checkpoint and renovating the Dongmen pedestrian business street.

The district has set targets of 6.5-7 percent GDP growth and a 3-percent registered unemployment rate.

The economic growth in Longhua District has maintained strong momentum with GDP growth at 10 percent, reaching 240 billion yuan, last year. Trade volume and industrial added value also hit new records. In 2019, the district will further forge competitiveness by building Meilin-Guanlan Science Innovation Corridor, branding its fashion, porcelain, red wood and print industries. The rail extension project for Metro Line 4 and Line 6 will be completed.

Work on the extensions of Qiaocheng Road East, Shahe East Road and Baopeng Passage will be initiated. Longhua will start construction on nine public schools and 25 kindergartens, while five hospitals will be built and three hospitals will begin renovations this year.
