Daxing poised for wider opening-up
The national new media industrial base in Beijing's Daxing district signed agreements for a series of major projects on Jan 9, a result of the district's investment in better construction of the "two zones" -- the Beijing Free Trade Zone and a national integrated demonstration zone to open the services sector wider.
During the centralized signing ceremony, the National New Media Industry Base signed contracts with 10 foreign-funded projects including the Japan-based game corporation SNK and the Belgium-based non-profit World Green Design Organization, as well as 10 headquarters and 10 technological innovative companies.
Wang Youguo, head of the district, said that both enterprises and the district should seize the opportunity to promote higher-standard opening-up and achieve coordinated development.
Party Secretary of the industrial base Song Qiang noted that investment promotion is a top priority of the cluster, with greater efforts to be made on improved procedures. Also, the concept of creating a gold-medal servant for enterprises is expected to become a solid backing for them.
In the past five years, the overall economic level of the industrial park has greatly improved, and its total revenue of technology, industry and trade has doubled. About 3,000 companies are now registered in Daxing.
According to the ceremony, the base will focus on transformation and upgrading of industries pertaining to next generation information technology, technological service, digital design and the new generation audio-visual sector to create a high-end industrial park worth 100 billion yuan ($15.4 billion).
