Central China's Henan province is beefing up efforts to promote industrial restructuring and upgrading, develop advanced manufacturing and foster emerging industries of strategic importance in a bid to sustain strong momentum for high-quality growth.

The production of new energy vehicles and service robots increased by 70.4 percent and 37.8 percent, respectively, last year, said Wang Guosheng, Party secretary of Henan province. Moreover, the added value of five major industries and new emerging industries with strategic importance grew by 7.7 percent and 12.2 percent, respectively, in 2018.

Wang said efforts are accelerated to make traditional manufacturing more eco-friendly, intelligent and technology-oriented, and drive the industrial output of the equipment manufacturing and food processing sectors to achieve 1 trillion yuan ($140 billion).

"We also promote the development of 18 industries with 100 billion yuan industrial outputs, such as energy-saving and environmental protection, intelligent electricity transmission, new equipment and biomedicine," Wang said.

"With the Zhengzhou-Luoyang-Xinxiang National Innovation Demonstration Zone as an exemplary model, we foster and introduce innovation-led enterprises, talents, platforms and institutions, boost the efficient integration of industry, innovation, financial and policy chains, and build up a dynamic innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem," said Chen Run'er, governor of Henan.

In 2018, the number of leading innovative enterprises amounted to 100, with the high-tech enterprises reaching 3,322 and national innovative platforms 202, according to him.

"Great breakthroughs have been made in key technologies, such as visible light communication, new energy vehicles and high-end mining machines," Chen added.
