Liaoning's push for high-tech industry expansion

Liaoning province will introduce more measures to develop its high-tech sector and improve its overall business environment to make itself more appealing to both global and domestic investors, officials recently told journalists during their trip to the province.

Organized by the State Council Information Office, the four-day interview trip attracted over 30 journalists from 19 domestic and international media outlets to record stories about the high-quality development of its manufacturing industry and foreign trade, as well as culture and ecological protection.

Located in the core area of the Northeast Asia economic circle, Liaoning serves as an important window for China's opening to the north and a central hub for cooperation in Northeast Asia.

Data from the provincial development and reform commission shows that in the first six months, the province saw its GDP exceed 1.4 trillion yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 5.6 percent.

In recent years, Liaoning has accelerated the simultaneous promotion of digitizing existing industries and investing in new digital industries, aiming to build an advanced equipment manufacturing base with international influence. The new world-class industry base will focus on petrochemicals, fine chemicals, and metallurgy.

According to the provincial department of industry and information technology, 20 fully connected 5G factories have recently been established, contributing to the 8.3 percent year-on-year increase to Liaoning's high-tech manufacturing industry during the January to July period.

At the 2023 World Robot Conference held in Beijing in August, robot maker Siasun Robot & Automation Co showcased its latest robots, attracting numerous visitors and business interests.

Established in 2000 in the provincial capital Shenyang, Siasun focuses on robotic technology and intelligent manufacturing solutions.

Over the past 23 years, the company has boasted a national-level R&D team focusing on independent innovation.

It has successfully completed over 800 important national scientific and technological research projects and gained over 1,300 invention patents.

As a National Engineering Center on Robotics, Siasun primarily engages in intelligent manufacturing, providing comprehensive core support for industrial upgrading.

The company has built an entire industry value chain that integrates independent core technology, core components, leading products, and industry-specific solutions.

Its products have been exported to over 40 countries and regions worldwide, delivering industrial upgrading services to more than 4,000 international companies.

In the first half of 2023, the China-Germany High-End Equipment Manufacturing Industrial Park (CGIP) achieved a gross industrial output value of 481.5 billion yuan (approximately $66 billion), with a year-on-year increase of 27.8 percent.

The construction plan for CGIP in Shenyang was approved by the State in December 2015, marking the first strategic platform in China focused on Sino-German cooperation in the high-end equipment manufacturing industry.

With an area of 48 square kilometers, CGIP emphasizes the development of five major industries: intelligent equipment, high-end equipment, automobile manufacturing, industrial services, and strategic emerging industries.

It has attracted direct investments from 84 of the world's top 500 companies, such as BMW, ZF Group and Bridgestone.

Liaoning has six ports, including Dalian, Yingkou, Dandong, Jinzhou, Panjin and Huludao, and has the most extensive airport network in Northeast China.

Approved by the State Council in April 2017, the Dalian Area of China (Liaoning) Pilot Free Trade Zone has become an important factor in attracting foreign investment and promoting foreign trade.

"Over the past years, the area has achieved a total GDP of 329 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 7.1 percent," said Fu Qiang, deputy director of the zone's administrative committee. "It has gathered one-seventh of the province's foreign-funded enterprises and the total import and export trade volume reached 112.3 billion yuan, accounting for 14 percent of the province."

"Although the Liaoning equipment manufacturing industry has a good foundation for development, it is still facing some difficulties and problems during its development," said Li Kai, deputy head of the China Academy of Northeast Revitalization. "Therefore, while continuing to increase the research on key core technologies and striving to improve the level of autonomy and control of the industrial chain, we should also strengthen the international industrial chain cooperation in the equipment manufacturing industry and promote more and more Chinese brands to global markets."
