Mianyang Accelerates the Upgrading of County Economy with "Five Actions"

Carrying out "revitalizing plan" with multi-point force

(Mianyang News) (reporter Huang Xiaoqin) On June 7, our reporter learned from the municipal development and reform commission that all the counties in Mianyang has achieved a total of regional GDP of 40.349 billion yuan in the first quarter of this year, an increase of 4.156 billion yuan compared with the same period last year. It accounts for 77.3% of the Mianyang's GDP, up 0.1 percentage points from the same period last year.Compared with the same period of the previous year, the ranking of GDP of most counties and county-level areas has risen in the provincial classification, of which the Youxian District rose by 6, and Santai county and BeichuanQiang Autonomous County rose by 2.These growths benefit from the "Five Actions" taken by the municipal government to revitalize economy in counties. It has accelerated the upgrading of counties' economy through multi-point force.

Accelerating the development of county economy is an important support for promoting sustained and healthy economic development.Since last year, the municipal Party committee and municipal government have strengthened the top-level design, established the propulsion mechanism and introduced the Opinions on Implementing the 'Revitalization Plan' to Accelerate the development of the County Economy. It has formulated 9 supporting policies and carefully planned "five major actions", which provides action guide to fully revitalize the county economy, take the lead in realizing secondary breakthroughs and upgrade Mianyang economy.

Under the guidance of the thought of "a game of chess", we focus on the "five major actions": the acceleration of industry cultivation, the urban and rural construction, the promotion of private economy, the breakthrough of the reform and opening up and the promotion of the people's livelihood. Governments of all the counties and county-level districts work hard and the municipal departments are fully supporting them with efficient services. We strive to fully implement the "revitalization plan". So that the county's total economy will grow faster and stronger with staying power and solid foundation.

Data show that: in the first quarter of this year, all the counties and county-level districts' total investment in fixed assets in the whole country investment reached 26.235 billion yuan, accounting for 74.6% of the Mianyang's total number.Among them, the increasing rate of Fucheng District, Youxian District, Anzhou district and Santai county is more than the average level of the whole city.

If the introduction, construction and landing of the projects are the driving force for accelerating the development of the county economy, the integration of three major industries (the primary industry, secondary industry and tertiary industry) is a powerful lever to pry the economic upgrades.With the rise of the county industry, the "skeleton" of the county economy has been expanded. In the first quarter of this year, the growth rate of value-added of industry above designated size exceeded expectations; the growth rate of seven counties and districts like Fucheng, Youxian, Anzhou, Jiangyou, Santai, Yanting and Zitong all exceeded the average level of the city.Among them, Santai county and Jianyoug county increased by 11.5%, ranking the first in the city.Meanwhile, all the counties and county-level districts achieved a total of the first industry value-added of 3.896 billion yuan, accounting for 92.9% of the total amount of the city. The growth rate of the first industry value-added of each county is higher than the same period of the previous year.

At the same time, Mianyang mainly focuses on the important areas and key links that restrict the economic development, deepens the supply-side structural reform and  reforms the "Fang Guan Fu"--streamline  administration and  delegate  more  powers  to  lower-level  governments  and  to  society  in  general while  improving regulation and improving government services; the time limit for project approval is compressed to 6 working days, and the online approval of investment projects is carried out in an all-round way.We have improved the comprehensive coordination system for investment promotion, system of the transfer of major projects and the benefit-sharing mechanism, to realize the sharing of the city-county platforms, the sharing of information and the promotion of projects; each county and district also focuses on building a new honest and upright government-business relationship and actively engages in the investment promotion in a precise and professional way.

Currently, "Five major actions" has promoted the city's county economy steadily with vitality, the city's three industrial integration and development being enhanced, the urban and rural construction showing prosperity, the environment for enterprise and business being optimized, the reform and opening being deepened and people's livelihood being improved.

The strength of a city depends on its counties.This year is the first year for our city to make a new beginning to build a new economic strong city in the western region. So, it is very important to continue to push forward the development of county economy.Next, Mianyang will conscientiously practice the new concept of development and adhere to the general principle of promoting while stabilizing; it will focus on the "five major actions", deeply carry out the "revitalization plan" of the county economy and strengthen the self-development ability of the county and urban areas; it aims to build the development pattern with various features, complementary advantages and mutual promotion, in order to speed up the construction of a strong economic city in the western areas.
