The park's economy also maintained steady development in 2013 with revenue exceeding 3 trillion yuan ($488.09 billion). Total profit topped 226.48 billion yuan ($36.85 billion), up 26.6 percent. The park's per capita income amounted to 1.6 million yuan, 237,000 yuan more than the average level of the country's science parks. The energy consumption decreased to 0.078 tons of standard coal per 10,000 yuan, less than one-fifth of Beijing's average.

In addition, other indexes including radiation drive, industrial development and enterprise growth reached 229.8, 206.4 and 181.0, respectively.
