North District Industrial Park has the feel of a garden

Series reports on Urumqi State High-tech Industrial Zone

The Urumqi State High-tech Industrial Zone's Northern District Industrial Park provides a garden-like environment that cannot be found elsewhere in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, or in the rest of northwestern China for that matter.

In 2010, Zhu Hailun, the city's Party secretary, asked the industrial park managers to modernize the area and give it a first-rate look, so they set some goals for industrial clusters, a better environment, and proper facilities, and had some more than satisfactory results and now have 101 enterprises, 78 of them already operating, giving the economy a big boost.

Meanwhile, the greening effort, costing 260 million yuan ($42.48 million) for landscaping, has paid off, with 1.4 million square meters of green area and a coverage rate of 46 percent. The park, which was set up in 2004, is one of the most promising industrial areas in the high-tech zone, with a total output value of 5 billion yuan, in 2011, and 7.2 billion in 2012. The figure is expected to go up to 10 billion, in 2013, if it reaches management and local government goals. In the first four months of this year, it had 2.38 billion yuan, or double the amount for last year's same period.

One highlight of the park is its innovative development. It restructured its industries in October 2012, giving priority to new materials, biomedicines, electronic information, culture and innovation, energy saving, and environmental protection, with favorable policies. It is also stressing investment attraction and production safety.

It got the "New Industrialization Demonstration Pilot" award from the Xinjiang Economy and Information Commission, in Aug 2012, and it established an e-commerce technology startup park, on June 29 of this year, after which the Xinjiang Huajing Optoelectronics Technology Co was approved as an intellectual property pilot, while the Xinjiang Hengyuanzhonghui Color Printing and Packaging Co got a 9-million-yuan bonus in 2012, for the culture industry.

In a visit to the park, Zhang Gaoli, China's vice premier, encouraged the enterprises there to innovate more and develop top industries.
