Current Strengths and Emerging Industries

During the 11th Five-year Plan period, the Nanchang National High-tech Industrial Development Zone rose to the challenge of transforming its mode of development and upgrading its industrial structure. While maintaining its advantages in the four pillar industries – electronic information/software, optical, mechanical and electronic integration, biomedicine and new materials – it is fostering strategic emerging industries such as photovoltaic technology, aviation manufacturing, and outsourcing services. Now, four of Nanchang’s five strategic pillar industries and six of Jiangxi Province’s 10 strategic emerging industries have found homes in this high-tech zone, attracted in large part to its strategically placed location.

Qiu Xiangjun, secretary of the Nanchang National High-tech Industrial Development Zone’s CPC Working Committee, said that the zone will be developed into a base for optoelectronics, LED chip manufacturing, biomedicine, new materials processing, 3G cell phone manufacturing, software service outsourcing, and aviation manufacturing. With this huge push it is estimated that by 2015, the main business income of the zone will have reached RMB 200 billion.

Behind this predicted growth are industry leaders like Lattice Power, the Jiangxi Copper Corporation and ZTE. These companies are essential in the industrial chain, responsible for output such as LED screens watched by people around the world.

Adhering to Innovation

Thanks to years of development and hard work, the Nanchang National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone boasts 21 national innovation platforms, including six incubators, five industrial bases, and two university science parks. It also has 60 technology centers and holds more than 1,000 patents for products and copyrights for 300 softwares.

In May 2011, the Nanchang National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone took on another challenge – the creation of an independent innovation demonstration area in the Poyang Lake Eco-economy Zone.

This is only a small part of the activities that will be seen in the next few years. By 2015, two national and 10 provincial engineering and technological research centers and three “industrial accelerators” will have been established in the Nanchang National High-tech Industrial Development Zone. It is believed that by that time the proportion of high-tech added-value will exceed half of Nanchang’s total industrial added-value.
