Party chief of Jilin Province Bayinchaolu inspected the progress of Changchun New Area in its accelerated transformation and upgrade on Nov 3.

He said the New Area could act as a vanguard of openingup and innovative development for Jilin province.

Changchun New Area was the first state-level new area approved by the State Council during the 13th Five-Year Plan(2016-20) period. It was not only crucial to pushing Jilin's new round of revitalization, but also an important strategic move to lead the industrial advancement of the central Jilin area.

During his field trip to Changchun New Area, Bayinchaolu emphasized the necessity of implementing the Party's guiding policy from the Sixth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, following the lead of President Xi.

Bayinchaolu, showing his concern for the progress of development, first paid a visit to the Changchun Science and Technology Resource Information Market.

After learning that the market had already gathered 1,150 high-tech companies, 2,832 experts in different fields, 612 scientific projects and 114 strategic cooperation service agencies, he encouraged the market to build a platform to better serve the high-tech companies and to turn the market into a high-tech center of technological resources, technology transferring, innovation and startup services.

Bayinchaolu was also happy to see some million-dollar projects hatching in Changchun. For example, 140 million yuan($20.5 million) in investment has been injected to the building of the Huawei Changchun Cloud Computing Data Center since the project started in April.

The center is part of Huawei Technology Co Ltd's strategy to establish a support center for the burgeoning intelligent manufacturing industry, big data and the modern service industry in Northeast China. The center has attracted a number of companies to the new zone.

"Big data analysis is crucial to government and enterprises," said Bayinchaolu. "It can help make more efficient use of resources and grant data access for all parties. It will improve government efficiency, as well as help entrepreneurs to gain better understanding of the needs and growth of the industry."

Bayinchaolu also visited the Changchun aerospace information industry park, which emphasizes the research and manufacturing of satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as the development of aerospace information products.

"Jilin's satellite production is the best example of making something out of nothing," Bayinchaolu said. "Jilin should form a complete industry chain based on satellite research, development and manufacturing, build an integrated information service platform and lead with industrial growth based on innovation."

Bayinchaolu also visited China International Center Group's Wanguo City, Northeast Asia (Changchun) International Machinery City and Changchun State-owned Captial Investment and Operation Changde Industrial Park. He pointed out that Jilin is currently in a crucial stage in determining whether it will achieve full rejuvenation and development for a well-off society.

Bayinchaolu believes the keys to Jilin's successful development is to stabilize economic development, adjust the economic structure and transform the industry through innovation. Therefore, he said, it is important for Jilin to attract professionals through good projects and a startup-friendly environment.

Infrastructure should come first in the city's upgrade, according to Bayinchaolu. The government should pursue green, intelligent development to meet people's needs in improving the city.

He said Changchun should provide more experience and serve as an example for the whole province's future reforms. The city will cooperate with provincial government departments to solve problems in the construction and development of the new area.
