Eight Major Industries:

To follow the strategic positioning of "building Yunnan into center driving the development of South and Southeast Asia" proposed by Chairman Xi Jinping during his visit to Yunnan in 2015, based on advantages of Yunnan, it is to strive to develop vigorously 8 major industries, i.e., biomedical and great health industry, tourism and cultural industry, information industry, logistics industry, modern agricultural industry with plateau characteristics, new material industry, advanced equipment manufacturing industry, food and consumer goods manufacturing industry.

 

In 2017, Yunnan issued the Opinions on Promoting the Development of Major Industries, and is to strengthen and improve traditional pillar industry, promote the development of major industries, accelerate the formation of new industrial cluster, and forge a new engine for provincial economic growth. Yunnan will set aside about 50% of provisions for development of industries subject to provincial financial supporting and all new investment to support the development of major industries in centralized manner. According to the concept of "one fund for one industry", Yunnan will set up funds and introduce social capital for development of major industries.

 

Major headway has been made in cultivation of eight major industries in Yunnan. "Working plans" for biomedical and great health industry, information industry, new material industry and advanced equipment manufacturing industry, as well as 10 measures for development of modern logistics industry have been provided. The logistics industry has developed rapidly. The information industry, and the food and consumer goods manufacturing industry have become 100 billion-level industries. The iterative industrial system of "traditional industry + pillar industry + emerging industry", aimed at "openness, innovation, high-end orientation, informatization and greening", has been basically formed, injecting great vigor into the smooth and healthy development of economy in Yunnan.

 

The main operating revenue of major industries has increased significantly. The main operating revenue of biomedical and great health industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 23.3%. The main operating revenue of information industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 16.2%. The gross revenue of tourism and cultural industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 41.3%. The gross revenue of logistics industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 16.9%. The total output value of modern agricultural industry with plateau characteristics has seen a year-on-year growth of 7.8%. The main operating revenue of new material industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 30%. The main operating revenue of advanced equipment manufacturing industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 21%. The main operating revenue of food and consumer goods manufacturing industry has seen a year-on-year growth of 15.9%.

 

Industrial Profile

"Three Brands" for Green Development:

Yunnan has put forward the requirement of accelerating the establishment of iterative industrial system of "traditional industry + pillar industry + emerging industry" to realize transformation and upgrading, and high-quality economic development in eco-friendly way. Meanwhile, it has put forward the requirement of forging three world-class brands, i.e., "green energy", "green food" and "healthy living destination".

 

"Green energy": Relying on abundant clean energy, such as water, electricity, natural gas and shale gas, it is to optimize and improve the green energy industry, expand the electricity markets at home and abroad, promote the integrated development of hydroelectric aluminum and silicon materials, accelerate the development of new-energy automobile industry, and convert the advantages of green and clean energy into economic and development advantages.


"Green food": Relying on unique ecological environment, it is to focus on 8 characteristic industries (including tea, flower, fruit, vegetable, walnut, coffee, Chinese herbal medicine, and beef cattle industries), improve and optimize green agricultural products with characteristics of Yunnan, such as "Yunnan vegetable", "Yunnan fruit", "Yunnan flower", "Yunnan tea", "Yunnan medicine" and "Yunnan coffee", cultivate a batch of enterprises being able to provide international service, improve the output value of agricultural product processing industry, and increase the influence and market share of agricultural products from Yunnan.


"Healthy living destination": Relying on blue sky and white clouds, green mountains and rivers, and pure air, it is to forge Yunnan into a charming tourist resort and a health preserving paradise, vigorously develop the chain-wise "great health industry" from "modern Chinese medicine, vaccine and stem cell application" to "medical scientific research and diagnosis and treatment" and then to "rehabilitation and leisure", and construct a medical industrial complex integrating medical treatment, research and development, education, rehabilitation and leisure.

 

The "Three Brands" are the breakthroughs for accelerating the development of eight major industries in Yunnan Province. In terms of "green energy", it is planned to obtain added value of more than RMB 120 billion for energy industry, and make the feed-in tariff of market-oriented transaction electricity reach 100 billion kW h as much as possible. In terms of "green food", it is to ensure ratio of output value of agricultural product processing industry to total output value of agriculture of 1.6:1 above, set up organic industry alliance, increase 1000 new agricultural products that are certified as pollution-free, green, organic and allowed to bear their unique geographical features, give rewards to "10 Famous Brands", "Top 10 Enterprises" and "Top 20 Innovation Enterprises", strive to introduce a batch of enterprises providing investment of over RMB 1 billion, increase 50 new leading enterprises with annual sales revenue exceeding RMB 100 million, and select 20 counties as pilot counties to carry out "one industry in one county" project. In terms of "healthy living destination", it is planned to construct 20 all-for-one tourism demonstration areas, 32 excellent self-driving routes, and more than 50 auto camps, so as to build Yunnan into a gathering place for innovation and entrepreneurship of high-level talents and for leisure of domestic and foreign tourists.
